The Critical Reception of Charles Dickens  1833 1841  Routledge Revivals

This bibliography, first published in 1989, brings together a number of reviews of the early Dickens which appeared in contemporary magazines, newspapers, and quarterlies during the eight years between 1833 and 1841. The chronological arrangement of reviews, both of Dickens and others, forms the core of this study. This book is perfect for those studying Dickens and his works in-depth.

Barnaby Rudge 1841

Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of Eighty (commonly known as Barnaby Rudge) is a historical novel by British novelist Charles Dickens.

Barnaby Rudge 1841

Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of Eighty (commonly known as Barnaby Rudge) is a historical novel by British novelist Charles Dickens. Barnaby Rudge was one of two novels (the other was The Old Curiosity Shop) that Dickens published in his short-lived (1840-1841) weekly serial Master Humphrey's Clock. Barnaby Rudge is largely set during the Gordon Riots of 1780. Barnaby Rudge was the fifth of Dickens' novels to be published. It had originally been planned to appear as his first, but changes of publisher led to many delays, and it first appeared in serial form in the Clock from February to November 1841. It was Dickens' first historical novel. His only other is the much later A Tale of Two Cities, also set in revolutionary times.[2] It is one of his less popular novels[3] and has rarely been adapted for film or television. The last production was a 1960 BBC production; prior to that, silent films were made in 1911 and 1915.Gathered round the fire at the Maypole Inn, in the village of Chigwell, on an evening of foul weather in the year 1775, are John Willet, proprietor of the Maypole, and his three cronies. One of the three, Solomon Daisy, tells an ill-kempt stranger at the inn a well-known local tale of the murder of Reuben Haredale which had occurred 22 years ago that very day. Reuben had been the owner of the Warren, a local estate which is now the residence of Geoffrey, the deceased Reuben's brother, and Geoffrey's niece, Reuben's daughter Emma Haredale. After the murder, Reuben's gardener and steward went missing and were suspects in the crime. A body was later found and identified as that of the steward, so the gardener was assumed to be the murderer.

The Complete Works of Charles Dickens

It is impossible to overstate the importance of British novelist CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) not only to literature in the English language, but to Western civilization on the whole. He is arguably the first fiction writer to have become an international celebrity. He popularized episodic fiction and the cliffhanger, which had a profound influence on the development of film and television. He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge, from Miss Havisham to Uriah Heep-have become not merely iconic, but mythic. But it was his stirring portraits of ordinary people-not the upper classes or the aristocracy-and his fervent cries for social, moral, and legal justice for the working poor, and in particular for poor children, in the grim early decades of the Industrial Revolution that powerfully impacted social concerns well into the 20th century. Without Charles Dickens, we may never have seen the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Upton Sinclair, or even Bob Dylan. Here, in 30 beautiful volumes-complete with all the original illustrations-is every published word written by one of the most important writers ever. The essential collector's set will delight anyone who cherishes English literature...and who takes pleasure in constantly rediscovering its joys. This volume contains Part II of The Old Curiosity Shop, which was originally serialized in Dickens's own periodical, Master Humphrey's Clock, in 1840 and 1841. The story of the orphan Nell Trent, who lives with her grandfather in the establishment by which the book takes its name, it is both beloved and disparaged for Dickens's treatment of, as Oscar Wilde famously termed it, "the death of little Nell," the suspense surrounding which was comparable to the Harry Potter phenomenon of today.

The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature

The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature

Replacing the Annals of English Literature (first published by OUP in 1935), the Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature presents a chronological record of around 15,000 works published in the English language since 1474.Like its predecessor, the Annals of English Literature, the purpose of this book is to show, at a glance, the main literary output of a given year. The aim is to display a significant and representative selection of works in relation to the history and culture of the day.The book''s primary focus is English literature, understood as works originally written in English by British authors published in Britain, though exceptions have been made for authors born elsewhere (e.g. Henry James) who made their home in Britain, or some colonial authors who published principallywith British publishing houses.Though works of the imagination (poetry, short stories, plays, novels) predominate, ''non-literary'' works (biographies, memoirs, critical works, historical scholarship, philosophical and religious texts) are also included. As far as possible the range of works covered represent all levels of literaryoutput and the greats sit alongside long forgotten gems, the trivial, the inspirational, and the unusual, all worthy of remembrance.The works covered generally fall into the following broad categories:DT Fiction (novels, novellas, short-story collections, anthologies, selected juvenile fiction)DT Poetry (individual works, single-author collections, anthologies)DT DramaDT Literary Scholarship (editions of English texts, editions of classical and foreign texts, editions of letters, dictionaries and other reference works, critical studies)DT Non-Fiction (essays, travel and exploration, literary memoirs, biographical studies, philosophical and religious works, historiography, economics)Each year shows a selection of titles published. The titles are arranged alphabetically by author surname. Each entry consists of author''s names and dates, title, notes giving information of particular interest and cross-references (not included with every title), and category (e.g. NF fornon-fiction or D for drama).At the beginning of each year there is also a short list of historical events and items of cultural interest, births, and deaths.What were people writing about around the time of the Reformation?Sir Thomas More (1478-1535)A Dialogue Concernynge Heresyes and Matters of ReligionSir Thomas Elyot (1490?-1546)Of the Knowledge whiche Maketh a Wise ManJohn Colet (1467?-1519)The Ordre of a Good Chrysten Mannes LyfeHow did the English Civil War influence literary output?Robert Chamberlain (1607?-60)The Swaggering Damsell: A comedyRalph Cudworth (1617-88)The Union of Christ and the Church, in a ShadowJoseph Hall (1574-1656)An Humble Remonstrance to the High Court of ParliamentWhat was being read after the French Revolution?Edmund Burke (1729-97)Reflections on the Revolution in FranceMary Wollstonecraft (1759-97)A Vindication of the Rights of MenCharlotte Palmer (fl.1790-1800)It is, and it is not a NovelTo what degree did the Industrial Revolution inspire the writers of that day?Charles Babbage (1792-1871)On the Economy of Machinery and ManufacturesWilliam Cobbett (1763-1835)Cobbett''s Manchester LecturesGilbert Abbott a Beckett (1811-56)The Revolt of the WorkhouseWhat are we reading about now?Helen Fielding (1958)Bridget Jones''s DiaryTed Hughes (1930-98)Birthday LettersZadie Smith (1975)White TeethPhilip Pullman (1946)The Amber SpyglassThe main chronology is supplemented by three indexes. An author index allows readers to view the literary output of any given author in chronological order, an index of periodicals gives a short overview of periodicals published during the period covered, and there is also an index of anonymoustitles.The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature presents a comprehensive year-by-year digest of 15,000 significant and representative works of literature published in English by British authors from 1474 to the present day. The greats sit alongside long forgotten gems, the trivial, theinspirational, and the unusual, all equally worthy of remembrance. An ideal resource for students and academics of English literature
