9780404644826: 52: Charles Dickens as an Agent of Change (AMS Studies in the Nineteenth Century)

Dickens was (and still is) an agent of change in an age of changes. His works, bursting with restless energy in the Inimitable's protean style, registered and commented on the ongoing changes in the Victorian world while their own fictional and factional worlds kept (and keep) changing. Containing work from an international group of Dickens scholars-including Malcolm Andrews, Matthias Bauer, Joel J. Brattin, Doris Feldmann, Herbert Foltinek, Robert Heaman, Michael Hollington, Bert Hornback, Norbert Lennartz, Chris Louttit, Jerome Meckier, Nancy Aycock Metz, David Paroissien, Christopher Pittard, and Robert Tracy-the 15 essays assembled here are arranged in four sections that suggest the many ways in which the notion of change has found entry into and is negotiated in Dickens's works. An afterword by Edgar Rosenberg adds a personal account of how Dickens changed the life of one eminent Dickensian.
