Book Description

2012 is the two-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens, one of Britain's all-time greatest writers. This collection charts the Guardian's relationship with Dickens and his legacy over that time, from his first 'celebrity' profile in the paper in 1846 right through to modern day reviews of television adaptations of Bleak House and John Crace's handy digested version of that intimidatingly large book. Dickens was a man whose interests were many and varied, and the pieces here reflect that, revealing his passion for wallpaper and interior decoration and his contributions to his wife's pseudonymous cookbook, as well as highlighting his enduring contributions to the worlds of theatre and literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great homage to a perennial author 12 Oct. 2012
By Crítico - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this bicentennial of Dickens birth, this complete and well formatted collection of his work is a good homage and vindication to an immortal writer, who deserves to be thoroughly read and enjoyed.

As a bonus, the collection includes several biographies, good and bad critic articles, and also one feasible conclusion - unknown for me - of the last novel of Dickens, interrupted by his death.
