"Chapman and Hall in 1873 published a prospectus for the Second Illustrated Library Edition, containing, they contended, all the works the novelist wished to preserve. Calling it the first well-printed issue, with specially cast type and better paper than that used in previous editions, this set was published in 30 volumes between 1873 and 1876 and sold at £15 for the set, a high price for the time."--Schlicke, Oxford reader's companion to Dickens.

We are happy to release online our special issue on Charles Dickens on the bicentennial of his birth. No edited volume can do proper justice to his creative genius and fully cover the vast and varied areas of his creation. Still, it is just a tribute from our part, a very humble attempt at looking back at what contribution he had during his own times and subsequently how he influenced writing novels and moulded the image of writer. It has also been our attempt to explore the various strands of print culture which subsequently culminated in knowledge revolution in the 20th century and how we relate those strands in our own age of digital revolution.

There are few authors whose names can be as immediately identified by a large international public as that of Charles Dickens. Indisputably, to both his own time and all since, he is the greatest literary figure of Victorian England. To many readers, he is equally the English novelist par excellence. Indeed, part of the general significance of Dickens is that he, more than anyone else in the English-speaking world, ensured the triumph of the novel as the most highly regarded and widely read of literary genres, a position it has retained ever since. This edition of Dickens' major works includes, as a matter of course, all the novels and the most significant shorter fiction (Christmas books and stories, Sketches by Boz, etc.). It also includes two volumes of travel writing, considerable selections from Dickens' periodical writing, and his entire output of verse. CSP are particularly pleased to include in this edition, by permission of the editor's estate, the entirety of Prof. Ken Fielding's edition of Dickens's speeches, acknowledged as the standard edition but which has now been out of print for over twenty years. The contents of the volumes are as follows: Volume 1 (606 pp.): Introduction to the Works by Prof. Michael Hollington; Sketches by Boz and other sketches Volume 2 (707 pp.): The Pickwick Papers Volume 3 (774 pp.): Nicholas Nickleby Volume 4 (101 pp.): Master Humphrey's Clock Volume 5 (507 pp.): The Old Curiosity Shop Volume 6 (600 pp.): Barnaby Rudge Volume 7 (737 pp.): Martin Chuzzlewit Volume 8 (398 pp.): Oliver Twist Volume 9 (754 pp.): Dombey and Son Volume 10 (736 pp.): David Copperfield Volume 11 (758 pp.): Bleak House Volume 12 (255 pp.): Hard Times Volume 13 (746 pp.): Little Dorrit Volume 14 (344 pp.): A Tale of Two Cities Volume 15 (376 pp.): Great Expectations Volume 16 (749 pp.): Our Mutual Friend Volume 17 (237 pp.): The Mystery of Edwin Drood Volume 18 (362 pp.): complete Christmas books: A Christmas Carol, The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain Volume 19 (631 pp.): complete Christmas stories (including collaborative material) Volume 20 (197 pp.): Reprinted Pieces Volume 21 (232 pp.): Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices, Bardell v.

Dickens and Empire offers a reevaluation of Charles Dickens's imaginative engagement with the British Empire throughout his career. Employing postcolonial theory alongside readings of Dickens's novels, journalism and personal correspondence, it explores his engagement with Britain's imperial holdings as imaginative spaces onto which he offloaded a number of pressing domestic and personal problems, thus creating an entangled discourse between race and class. Drawing upon a wealth of primary material, it offers a radical reassessment of the writer's stance on racial matters. In the past Dickens has been dismissed as a dogged and sustained racist from the 1850s until the end of his life; but here author Grace Moore reappraises The Noble Savage, previously regarded as a racist tract. Examining it side by side with a series of articles by Lord Denman in The Chronicle, which condemned the staunch abolitionist Dickens as a supporter of slavery, Moore reveals that the tract is actually an ironical riposte. This finding facilitates a review and reassessment of Dickens's controversial outbursts during the Sepoy Rebellion of 1857, and demonstrates that his views on racial matters were a good deal more complex than previous critics have suggested. Moore's analysis of a number of pre- and post-Mutiny articles calling for reform in India shows that Dickens, as their publisher, would at least have been aware of the grievances of the Indian people, and his journal's sympathy toward them is at odds with his vitriolic responses to the insurrection. This first sustained analysis of Dickens and his often problematic relationship to the British Empire provides fresh readings of a number of Dickens texts, in particular A Tale of Two Cities. The work also presents a more complicated but balanced view of one of the most famous figures in Victorian literature.

Forgiveness In Victorian Literature

Forgiveness was a preoccupation of writers in the Victorian period, bridging literatures highbrow and low, sacred and secular. Yet if forgiveness represented a common value and language, literary scholarship has often ignored the diverse meanings and practices behind this apparently uncomplicated value in the Victorian period. Forgiveness in Victorian Literature examines how eminent writers such as Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and Oscar Wilde wrestled with the religious and social meanings of forgiveness in an age of theological controversy and increasing pluralism in ethical matters. Richard Gibson discovers unorthodox uses of the language of forgiveness and delicate negotiations between rival ethical and religious frameworks, which complicated forgiveness's traditional powers to create or restore community and, within narratives, offered resolution and closure. Illuminated by contemporary philosophical and theological investigations of forgiveness, this study also suggests that Victorian literature offers new perspectives on the ongoing debate about the possibility and potency of forgiving.
