"Academic fans of Dickens's early novels will be gratified by John Bowen's Other Dickens: Pickwick to Chuzzlewit, a ringing defense of the novels Dickens wrote in the first half of his career.... Bowen [demonstrates] a mastery of the body of Dickens criticism.... We owe Bowen a debt of gratitude for delineating so eloquently the politically radical Dickens and for helping us better appreciate his exquisite humor, deep insight into the human condition, and consummate artistry."--College Literature.

The bestselling and controversial new history of the 'British Isles', including Ireland from the author of Europe: A History. Emphasizing our long-standing European connections and positing a possible break-up of the United Kingdom, this is agenda-setting work is destined to become a classic. 'If ever a history book were a tract for the times, it is The Isles: A History ... a masterwork.' Roy Porter, The Times 'Davies is among the few living professional historians who write English with vitality, sparkle, economy and humour. The pages fly by, not only because the pace is well judged but also because the surprises keep coming.' Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, Sunday Times 'A book which really will change the way we think about our past . marvellously rich and stimulating' Noel Malcolm, Evening Standard 'A historiographical milestone.' Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times 'The full shocking force of this book can only be appreciated by reading it.' Andrew Marr, Observer 'It is too soon to tell if [Norman Davies] will become the Macaulay or Trevelyan of our day: that depends on the reading public. He has certainly made a good try. This is narrative history on the grand scale - compulsively readable, intellectually challenging and emotionally exhilirating.' David Marquand, Literary Review

«Все так говорили.Я далек от утверждения, будто то, что все говорят, непременно правда. Все нередко и ошибаются. Как показывает опыт человечества, эти самые все уже так часто ошибались и порой так не скоро удавалось понять всю глубину их ошибки, что этому авторитету больше не следует доверять. Все могут быть и правы. „Но это не закон“, как говорит призрак Джайлса Скроггинса в известной балладе.Грозное слово „призрак“ будит во мне воспоминания...»

«Домби и сын» - один из лучших романов великолепного английского писателя, гениального прозаика Чарльза Диккенса. Перед нами история семьи Домби, в которой милая и добрая Флоренса отчаянно пытается добиться расположения собственного отца. Однако чистые и непорочные чувства разбиваются вдребезги о скалы отцовской ненависти, гордости и тщеславия. Одной из особенностей романа является многообразное сатирическое описание быта английской буржуазии того времени, а главный герой, мистер Домби, - яркий образ английского капиталиста. Неповторимый авторский стиль повествования и острый сюжет романа «Домби и сын» захватывают читателя уже с первой страницы.

Through a comprehensive study of Dickens' career this work examines the crucial role played by London in the character of the man and the development of his writing. It discusses the significance of Dickens' early childhood experience in moving to London, and the special place the city came to hold in his creative imagination throughout his life. Then, blending biography and literary analysis with urban and social history, Dr Schwarzbach traces the fascinating and often dramatic relationship of the novels to the ever changing Victorian urban scene. The novels emerge not only as valuable historical documents, astonishing in their comprehensiveness and accuracy of detail, but as a unique contribution to the growth of modern urban culture.

Who's Who in Dickens is an accessible guide to the many characters in Charles Dickens' fiction.

Who's Who in Dickens provides: * an easy-to-use A-Z layout * physical and psychological profiles of the characters * a critical look at his characters by past and present influential commentators * a list of characters and works in which they have appeared * over forty illustrations of major characters drawn by Dickens' contemporaries

Рассказы Чарльза Диккенса носят повествовательный характер и рассказывают о мире, в котором жил писатель. Образы, созданные Диккенсом, взяты из реальности и перенесены на «литературный холст» с добавлением штрихов юмора и иронии, но, вместе с тем, они наполнены добротой и любовью. Героями Чарльза Диккенса становятся и взрослые, и дети, люди различных профессий, целые семьи. Автор замечательно описывает портрет самого героя, от лица которого часто ведется рассказ, — его психологию, кругозор, манеру речи, отношение к миру. В тех случаях, когда место рассказчика занимает сам автор, через строчки явно проступает образ самого Диккенса, его богатый внутренний мир и человеческое сопереживание.

These three very different novels show the remarkable scope of Dicken's work. Hard Times (1854) exposes the limites of utilitarian philosophy, as Louisa Gradgrind grows up trapped by her disciplinarian father's uncompromising views on bringing up children. A Tale of Two Cities (1859), set in London and Paris, sees the causes and effects of the French Revolution from the point of view of individuals caught up in events. One of Dicken's most experimental novels, it is also a highly charged examination of human suffereing and sacrifice. Great Expectations (1860-1) charts the progress of Pip from childhood through a series of painful and comic experiences to adulthood, stressing that he must establish his own sense of self and discover his own set of values. Peopled with memorable characters such as Sleary of the circus in Hard Times, and Miss Havisham, locked in memories of her past in Great Expectations, each of these novels explores questions of human fallibility, honour, and growth.

The one great principle of the English law is, to make business for itself. Jarndyce and Jardyce is an infamous lawsuit that has been in process for generations. Nobody can remember exactly how the case started but many different individuals have found their fortunes caught up in it. Esther Summerson watches as her friends and neighbors are consumed by their hopes and disappointments with the proceedings. But while the intricate puzzles of the lawsuit are being debated by lawyers, other more dramatic mysteries are unfolding that involve heartbreak, lost children, blackmail, and murder. This highly critical look at the flaws of the British judiciary system contains the illustrations by Phiz that are found in the original editions.
