Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Paul Dombey is a heartless London merchant who runs his domestic affairs as he runs his business. In the tight orbit of his daily life there is no room for dealing with emotions because emotion has no market value. In his son he sees the future of his firm and the continuation of his name, while he neglects his affectionate daughter, until he decides to get rid of her beloved, a lowly clerk. But Dombey's weakness is his pride, and he falls prey to the treacherous flattery of others. Combining an intricate plot, vivid language, and

Dickens's customary social commentary, Dombey and Son, explores the possibility of moral and emotional redemption through familial love.


Review:
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Charles Dickens Dombey and Son is a darkly witty tale of two siblings struggle to achieve happiness in the shadow of their father s pride, edited with an introduction and notes by Andrew Sanders in Penguin Classics . To Paul Dombey, business is all and money can do anything. He runs his family life as he runs his firm: coldly, calculatingly and commercially. The only person he cares for is his frail son, grooming him for entry into the family business; his daughter Florence, abandoned and ignored, craves affection from her unloving father, who sees her only as a base coin that couldn t be invested . As Dombey s callousness extends to others - from his defiant second wife Edith, to Florence s admirer Walter Gay - he sows the seeds of his own destruction. Can this heartless businessman be redeemed? A compelling depiction of a man imprisoned by his own pride, Dombey and Son explores the devastating effects of emotional deprivation on a dysfunctional family and on society as a whole. In his introduction, Andrew Sanders discusses the character of Paul Dombey, business and family relationships in Dombey and Son and their similarities to Dickens own childhood. This edition also includes a chronology, further reading, appendices, notes and the original illustrations by Phiz . Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including Oliver Twist , Great Expectations , A Tale of Two Cities , David Copperfield and The Pickwick Papers , have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you liked Dombey and Son , you might enjoy Dickens s Martin Chuzzlewit , also available in Penguin Classics . There s no writing against such power as this - one has no chance. (William Makepeace Thackeray). Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780140435467
