Description
Charles Dickens belongs to an exclusive literary club: he was immensely popular when he was alive, and his work has never fallen out of fashion. His larger-than-life style and over-the-top characters have inspired countless authors and adaptations (there are more than 25 versions of "A Christmas Carol" alone), while among his contemporaries Dickens's vast success (and his "radical" politics) provoked both admiration and scorn. Dickens, Brian Murray reminds us in this delightful illustrated companion, saw life as a battle, but as both a novelist and journalist he sought to provide a more hopeful worldview. Among Murray's topics: Dickens and Animals; Christmas Stories; Dickens vs. Thackeray; Dickens Down Under; What Dickens Read; Dickens and Spontaneous Combustion; and Dickens on the Couch.
