The Oxford Handbook of Charles Dickens is a comprehensive and up-to-date collection on Dickens's life and works.
It includes original chapters on all of Dickens's writing and new considerations of his contexts, from the social, political, and economic to the scientific, commercial, and religious.
The contributions speak in new ways about his depictions of families, environmental degradation, and improvements of the industrial age, as well as the law,charity, and communications.
His treatment of gender, his mastery of prose in all its varieties and genres, and his range of affects and dramatization all come under stimulating reconsideration.
His understanding of British history, of empire and colonization, of his own nation and foreign ones, and of selfhood andotherness, like all the other topics, is explained in terms easy to comprehend and profoundly relevant to global modernity.
