Item Description: J.M. DENT E.P. DUTTON, 1907. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. An attractive book, very clean pages, beautifully decorated covers with bright gold title block, no dustjacket, front hinge is starting to crack but book is still nicely intact. ; One of the grand masters of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work. Bookseller Inventory # 108952

Item Description: Garnier Hermanos, Libreros- Editores, Paris, 1907. Tela Con Gofrados Ilus Edit. Book Condition: Muy buen Estado. EN ESPAÑOL, 300pp, SOBRE EL AUTOR:: Charles John Huffam Dickens (Portsmouth, Inglaterra, 7 de febrero de 1812 – Gads Hill Place, Inglaterra, 9 de junio de 1870) fue un famoso novelista inglés, uno de los más conocidos de la literatura universal, y el principal de la era victoriana. Fue maestro del género narrativo, al que imprimió ciertas dosis de humor e ironía, practicando a la vez una aguda crítica social. En su obra destacan las descripciones de gente y lugares, tanto reales como imaginarios. Utilizó en ocasiones el seudónimo Boz. Críticas posteriores, tales como las de George Gissing y G. K. Chesterton, defendieron y aclamaron su dominio de la lengua inglesa como inigualable, sus personajes como inolvidables, y en gran medida su profunda sensibilidad social. No obstante, también recibió críticas de sus mejores lectores —George Henry Lewes, Henry James y Virginia Woolf, entre ellos— los cuales achacaron ciertos defectos a sus obras, como el sentimentalismo efusivo, acontecimientos irreales y personajes grotescos.1 Sus novelas y relatos cortos disfrutaron de gran popularidad en vida del escritor, y aún hoy se editan continuamente. Dickens escribió novelas por entregas, el formato usual en la ficción en su época, por la simple razón de que no todo el mundo poseía los recursos económicos necesarios para comprar un libro, y cada nueva entrega de sus historias era esperada con gran entusiasmo por sus lectores, nacionales e internacionales. Dickens fue y sigue siendo venerado como un ídolo literario por escritores de todo el mundo. El estilo de Dickens es florido y poético, con un fuerte toque cómico. Sus sátiras sobre el esnobismo de la aristocracia británica —él llamaba a uno de sus personajes «El Refrigerador Noble»— son a menudo populares. Comparaciones de huérfanos con accionistas o comensales con muebles son algunas de sus más aclamadas ironías. Personajes [editar] Escena de Cuento de Navidad. A Dickens lo han llamado un autor cuyos personajes son de los más memorables y creativos en la literatura inglesa--si no exclusivamente por sus peculiaridades insólitas, con certeza por sus nombres. Personajes, como Ebenezer Scrooge, Fagin, Mrs. Gamp, David Copperfield, Charles Darnay, Oliver Twist, Micawber, Pecksniff, Miss Havisham, Wackford Squeers y muchos otros, son tan bien conocidos, que se puede hasta creer que tienen una vida fuera de sus novelas y que sus historias continuarían con otros autores. A Dickens le encantaba el estilo del siglo XVIII, el romance gótico, incluso lo llegó a tomar a juego —Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey fue una muy conocida parodia— y mientras algunos son grotescos, sus excentricidades no suelen eclipsar sus historias. Uno de los personajes mejor dibujados dentro de sus novelas es la misma Londres. Desde los bares de las afueras de la ciudad hasta las orillas del Támesis, todos los aspectos de la capital británica son descritos por alguien que la amaba verdaderamente y que pasaba muchas horas caminando por sus calles.
