"The inspiration Dickens derived from Carlyle's ideas had a considerable impact on his early work and played a large part in shaping the content and manner of the late novels so justly admired by modern critics. In this incisive examination of literary influences the author traces the intellectual relationship of the Victorian era's most influential teacher and its most popular and successful novelist; he suggests that the changes which dramatically transformed Dickens' view of art and society in the 1840s are directly attributable to his response to Carlyle. It was Carlyle who in Sartor Resartus pointed the way toward the powerful symbolic methods of Dickens' dark, visionary late novels and led Dickens to see that the social abuses he had formerly accepted as isolated phenomena were the result of a general canker at the heart of mid- Victorian society itself. The Book is frankly historical in its attempt to place both writers in the context of the Victorian ange and its preoccupations. Modern criticism has lent its imprimatur to Dickens's late work, the dark novels which increasingly reflected his anguish at the paradoxes and enormities of the Victorian world. Dickens has been praised for his anticipation of Kafka and for his affinities with Dostoevski, Proust, and Lawrence. Yet for all his relevance to the modern age, Dickens was for thiry years the self-acknowledged disciple of Carlyle, and he remains, like his intellectual hero, eminently a Victorian." from the jacket flap.
