This is the first major study of Dickens's villains. They embody, John argues, the crucial fusion between the 'deviant' and 'theatrical' aspects of his writing. Though there have been many studies of both the macabre and the dramatic Dickens, this book sets up a dialogue between these two main strands. John's wider reappraisal of Dickensian character stems from a belief that post-Romantic criticism and theory has been permeated by an anti-theatrical privileging of the mind. Dickens's characters, by contrast, are commonly modelled on passional prototypes from nineteenth-century melodrama. Her- interdisciplinary study locates the rationale for Dickens's melodramatic characters in his political commitment to the principle of cultural inclusivity and his related resistance to 'psychology'. Melodramatic villains function as the key site of Dickens's responses to theatricality, psychology, and cultural inclusiveness. Dickens's Villains suggests a new way of understanding the cultural and political implications of his melodramatic aesthetics

The Textual Life Of Dickens S Characters

The author's publications include "John Forster: A Literary Life" and "Dylan Thomas's Places". By focusing on selected characters and characterisations from all stages of his literary career, from his non-fiction as well as the famous novels, and using a blend of formal literary criticism and modern literary theory to stress their textual functions, it examines the ways in which they summarise themes, are narrators and readers, dramatise ideas and structure texts. The conclusion explores the thematic significance, for Dickens's works, of the modern distinction between story and text. From such considerations emerge fresh and challenging interpretations of many of Dickens's most famous writings.

At the heart of Charles Dickens's second novel, first published in 1838, is a story as much about crime and poverty as it is about justice and charity. Orphaned at birth, Oliver Twist grows up under the loveless, relentless watch of a workhouse. He runs away with hopes for a better life in London, only to become--at the hands of the unforgettable Artful Dodger--a guileless pawn in a gang of pickpockets and robbers working for Fagin, one of Dickens's most controversial villains. Full of ingenious plot twists, at turns thrilling, tragic, tender, and sharp-eyed, The Adventures of Oliver Twist is among Dickens's most enduring classics.

"This clear-sighted biography and literary study examines Dickens the novelist in all his glory. It begins with the life: its often tragic as well as comic dimensions. Brian Murray analyzes the important influence of Dickens's early professional experiences as a journalist. (It was as a reporter that Dickens encountered, and first wrote about, the great human problems of modern urban life that were to inform so much of his later work.) Also discussed is Dickens's fascination with the theater. Like any experienced playwright, he was always acutely aware of his audience. And the later reading tours, which became an obsession, were almost certainly an aspect of the same impulse." "Successive chapters discuss the great novels, from Pickwick to Edwin Drood. They are looked at in their social context and from the standpoint of character, narrative, and structure. Readings of novels such as Dombey and Son and Bleak House are of especial interest for their close analysis of sometimes neglected works." "At times, Dickens seems dated. But the large audience that exists for his work today, as it appears in various media, is proof of his teeming inventiveness and the universality of his themes. Humorist, satirist, muckraker, sentimentalist, tragedian, chronicler of humanity, Dickens continues to delight and to teach - to enlighten all of humanity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

At the time of Dickens' sudden death in 1870, he had completed six of the 12 monthly installments of Edwin Drood. Anxious readers on both sides of the Atlantic were stranded with what Don Richard Cox calls, the most popular unfinished novel ever written. Speculation about the book's conclusion soon began and, as the years have passed, literally scores of authors have tried their hands at completing the story, writing their own sequels, conclusions, parodies and alternative endings. There have been dozens of stage, radio, film and television versions as well. Mock trials have sought a legal solution to the puzzle, and even spiritualists have tried to contact the ghost of Dickens, hoping to discover what the author's plans really were.

The Social Novel In England 1830 1850 Rle Dickens

This is the first English translation of Le Roman social en Angleterre by Louis Cazamian, which is widely recognized as the classic survey of Victorian social fiction. Starting from the eighteenth century, Cazamian traces the ways in which rationalism and romanticism intertwined and competed, particularly in relation to radical political philosophy. He shows how industrialization polarized England, setting the industrial bourgeoisie in the van of progress in the first decades of the nineteenth century, until their political and economic triumph stirred up a passionate reaction against them. This reaction propelled novelists such as Charles Dickens who lies at the centre of his discussion. For this translation Martin Fido has provided a substantial foreword, and has revised and completed the bibliographical references and corrected the footnotes to assist the present-day reader.
