Episode scene:

The Virginian, Steve and Trampas are guests of a woman and her foster children. The Virginian notices that she and the children talk in the language of Charles Dickens. When she expresses surprise that he is familiar with Dickens, he answers that he was “exposed once” but then it was time for the roundup. She reads a passage from her favorite, Oliver Twist. Later, in the barn, Trampas asks the Virginian how the story ends, and the foreman tells him.

Quotation from the book (Chapter 27):

She had come to read to him for the allotted time...and...was mid-way in a book that engaged his full attention - David Copperfield

Additional comments:

  1. In It Tolls For Thee the Virginian quotes John Donne.
  2. In First To Thine Own Self the Virginian quotes Shakespeare.
  3. In A Love To Remember Mrs. Grainger mentions that the Virginian likes to “keep up on his reading.”
