Publication of 'Dickens and Modernity', ed. by Professor Juliet John

Posted on 30/11/2012
DickensandModernity, Juliet John

Professor Juliet John has edited a new book, Dickens and Modernity, which is the Dickens bicentenary version of Essays and Studies, published by Boydell and Brewer/The English Association.

The book asks what the relationship is between Dickens and the modern world, positioning Dickens as a literary and cultural icon with a complex relationship to both his own period and to modernity, exploring the diversity and multiplicity of his textual and extra-textual lives.

Dickens and Modernity also features a specially commissioned Afterword by Florian Schweizer, Director of the ‘Dickens 2012’ celebrations, which offers a fascinating insight into the shaping of this year-long public programme of commemoration.
