Synopsis: The Bedside Dickens provides a lively look at this great novelist's life and career. It sheds light on his role as a polemicist and journalist and explores the way his work was long informed by his Christian faith. It also reveals his most persistent literary themes and provides a vivid sense of how, among his contemporaries, Dickens' vast success-and his "radical" politics-provoked both admiration and scorn. Dickens, this study reminds us, saw life as a battle, but as both a novelist and journalist he sought to provide a more hopeful worldview. He repeatedly satirized vice and folly, even as he urged his readers and the leaders of his day to be less selfish and narrow and to "do good always."


Chapters and topics include: Dickens and Animals; Christmas Stories; The Magnetizer; Dickens vs. Thackeray; A Christian Writer; Dickens Down Under; What Dickens Read; Dickens and Spontaneous Combustion; Dickens and Journalism; Dickens on the Couch.

About the Author: Brian Murray is the author of H.G Wells and Charles Dickens: Literature and Life, and a contributor and adviser to the Encyclopedia of World Literature in the 20th Century and The Continuum Encyclopedia of British Literature. His essays, articles, and reviews have appeared in a variety of scholarly and popular publications, including First Things, The Weekly Standard, and The Baltimore Sun.
