Dickens Dictionary

Rodney Dale

 

Few Victorian writers are as well-remembered as Charles Dickens (1812–70). And many of his characters have been widely known since they first saw the light of day in books such as The Pickwick Papers, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations.

 

The Wordsworth Dickens Dictionary gives a comprehensive account of Dickens's writings and characters, and presents a chronology of his life and times. As well as providing a mine of information for students of literature, it will be found invaluable by addicts of the quiz and the crossword, as well as being an interesting browse in its own right.
