Written by distinguished specialists of Dickens and the Victorian age, the essays collected in this volume cover a wide range of interrelated subjects and offer a large variety of approaches to the complex work of a complex man. The first two parts, 'Dickens and Europe' and 'Dickens and the New World', do more than merely track the 'uncommercial traveller' on his way to France, Italy or America. They explore the meanders of a many-sided and contradictory personality, his power both to admire and criticise, his John Bullishness and his fascination with difference and novelty, his capacity to discover otherness at home and abroad, in the innermost recesses of familiar places as well as on untrodden ground. In the next two parts,'Dickens and His World' and 'Dickens and Our World', 'world' assumes an even broader meaning, including the new world of science - which much intrigued the novelist - as well as the new worlds of literary theory and ideology (linguistics, feminism, post-colonialism) and of modern technology (the cinema), which demand new readings of his works.
