9780300170931: Charles Dickens

This long-awaited biography, twenty years after the last major account, uncovers Dickens the man through the profession in which he excelled. Drawing on a lifetime's study of this prodigiously brilliant figure, Michael Slater explores the personal and emotional life, the high-profile public activities, the relentless travel, the charitable works, the amateur theatricals and the astonishing productivity. But the core focus is Dickens' career as a writer and professional author, covering not only his big novels but also his phenomenal output of other writing--letters, journalism, shorter fiction, plays, verses, essays, writings for children, travel books, speeches, and scripts for his public readings, and the relationships among them. Slater's account, rooted in deep research but written with affection, clarity, and economy, illuminates the context of each of the great novels while locating the life of the author within the imagination that created them. It highlights Dickens' boundless energy, his passion for order and fascination with disorder, his organizational genius, his deep concern for the poor and outrage at indifference towards them, his susceptibility towards young women, his love of Christmas and fairy tales, and his hatred of tyranny. Richly and precisely illustrated with many rare images, this masterly work on the complete Dickens, man and writer, becomes the indispensable guide and companion to one of the greatest novelists in the language.

Descrizione libro Yale. 1 Paperback(s), 2009. soft. Condizione libro: New. The past president of the International Dickens Fellowship, former editor of The Dickensian, and longtime trustee of the Charles Dickens Museum, literature professor Michael Slater gives us an outstanding portrait of this literary icon through the particular window of Dickens's own pen. He covers not only the big novels but also Dickens's phenomenal output of letters, journalism, shorter fiction, plays, verses, essays, writings for children, travel books, speeches, and scripts for his public readings. Slater "assembles a million accumulated details, minutely examining the genesis of each work," noted Simon Callow in London's Guardian, resulting in "an incomparable portrait of the writing life of Dickens. Cumulatively, it is profoundly moving, chronicling the constant restless interaction between the life and work." 696. Codice libro della libreria 42504
