On the Clarendon Dickens: "The Oxford University Press continues its outstanding contribution to Dickens scholarship....This is a far more sophisticated scholarly edition of Dickens than has ever been attempted."--Times Literary Supplement. The Pickwick Papers, seventh novel in The Clarendon Dickens, joins the heralded series on the 150th anniversary of its first publication. Originally planned as a monthly column, the "papers" of the Pickwick Club quickly outgrew their origins to become a brilliantly comic novel whose hilarity did not preclude penetrating satire on the state of pre-Victorian London. James Kinsley's introduction charts the novel's development and reveals new sources and influences on the work.

Charles Dickens's satirical masterpiece, "The Pickwick Papers, catapulted the young writer into literary fame when it was first serialized in 1836-37. It recounts the rollicking adventures of the members of the Pickwick Club as they travel about England getting into all sorts of mischief. Laugh-out-loud funny and endlessly entertaining, the book also reveals Dickens's burgeoning interest in the parliamentary system, lawyers, the Poor Laws, and the ills of debtors' prisons. As G. K. Chesterton noted, "Before [Dickens] wrote a single real story, he had a kind of vision . . . a map full of fantastic towns, thundering coaches, clamorous market-places, uproarious inns, strange and swaggering figures. That vision was Pickwick."
