Description

A guide to all of Dickens's novels, short stories, pamphlets, plays, collections of journalism and travel books. Its formula of alphabetically arranged entries, keyed to the individual works, plus chapter rather than page references, makes it a useful companion to any Dickens edition. It can be used to check literary allusions, unfamiliar quotations, words and phrases, and topical or historical references, and is equally useful as an independent reference tool for identifying characters, places both real and fictitious, quotations from songs, and references to historical characters or institutions, without knowing where in Dickens's work these may occur.show more
