The Charles Dickens Miscellany, Hardback Book

The Charles Dickens Miscellany Hardback



This miscellany explores the staggeringly busy and diverse life of Charles Dickens, giving readers the chance to get to knowthe man through his work and its major themes.

With carefully chosen quotations from the novels, but also from his sketches and journalism, discover what Dickens had to say about the big issues like crime, the family, education and money.

Meet here, too, those wonderful characters that have been handed down to us like the real figures of history - Mr Micawber, Fagin, Miss Havisham, David Copperfield and many more. So what is it that made Dickens special? This miscellany offers an insight into all the mad humour, passionate indignation, moral conviction, plain good sense and sheer unstoppable energy that made up one of the very greatest of English writers.
