Read Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens Oxford Reader's Companions Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens Oxford Reader's Companions Summary õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Free download Ç E-book, or Kindle E-pub é Paul Schlicke Ree three maps an invaluable bibliography and a general index Compiled by a distinguished editorial team and written in a lucid easy style that would have pleased him The Oxford Companion to Charles Dickens offers a authoritative and accessible range of information than any other reference work on Dickens. Encyclopedic literary biography of Dickens is thorough but not exhaustive Alphabetic entries of varying length by a large team of Dickens experts cover events places people and subjects in Dickens writing and public and private life Longer entries include bibliographies for further research and a general bibliography is providedEach major Dickens work is given a separate section documenting its inception and composition contract text and publication history illustrations sources and context plot character and theme receptionThere are some pictures and maps although would be better and appendices providing an alphabetic list of characters and timeline of Dickens life and career with parallel literary and historical events The companion packs a lot of information into its 650 heavy pages of small print If you plan to spent extensive time perusing sections keep that in mind I wear bifocals but the print was too small even for my reading lenses so I had to read longer sections without my glasses Maybe that s about me than about the book but you are forewarned if you are of a certain age and you know who you are out thereThe coverage of Dickens seems scrupulously fair documenting both the good and bad of Dickens life and career And yes there are bad in both despite his rise to the pantheon of literary demi gods I have read and reviewed six of his novels and rated all as 5 star classics His well kept secret affair with Ellen Ternan is mentioned but neither sensationalized nor explained away I didn t read every entry word for word this is a reference work after all and like all encyclopedia suffers from some repetition of information between entries but I learned much new and fascinating about Dickens every one of his novels was written and originally published as weekly or monthly serials he wrote over 14000 letters that are documented as of the publication date with still being discovered while known for his novels his output in other styles journalism essays short stories actually exceeds his novels he was friends with novelist Bulwer Lytton infamous for the opening phrase It was a dark and stormy night and immortalized in the annual prize for worst fiction writing Fortunately the association seems not to have effected Dickens ability Dickens attacked writing like a day job keeping a strict daily schedule for several years working on two series in parallel on journalistic deadlines which were nearly always met while engaging in a vigorous public life of amateur stage productions speeches travels and book reading tours that both made and benefited from his groundbreaking celebrity status perhaps the most intriguing personal biographic detail notwithstanding the unknown and never knowable details of his affair is his undying love for his wife s sisters including a deep period of mourning for one who died as a teenager while serving as an aide to his wife and a public reuest to be buried next to her try that on your own wife and see how that goes then the continuation of his wife s other sister as the children s governess even after Dickens public separation from his wife wonder how those family get togethers went around the Christmas tree for the reading of the Christmas CarolI pulled these samples from memory in a few short minutes based on my reading of this reference Clearly for anyone interested in reading or knowing Dickens this is an extremely valuable companion

A Book to Browse in and to Souse inA few days ago I bought the Anniversary Edition of The Oxford Companion to Charles Dickens edited by Dickens scholar Paul Schlicke and have repeatedly found myself lost what a strange collocation but it works for me in it not so much because it were written in a difficult and roundabout style but because it is so intriguing and fascinating Written in the form of an encyclopaedia instead of as a collection of essays it offers than 500 articles greatly varying in length and therefore invites to reader to hummingbird his own preferred way through the whole book My first article was that on The Pickwick Papers since I happen to be re reading Dickens s first novel at the moment and from there my fancy took me to novelists and the novel before Dickens which in its turn took me to Defoe Daniel A few hours later my curiosity and the leisure time of a Saturday afternoon made me pick up the tome again this time starting with Thackeray William Makepeace from where I started reading the article about Dickens s particular style where I learnt that Dickens mastered a variety of different styles which makes it tricky to parody him all the so as his narrative voice is often arch and tongue in cheek in itselfSince Saturday I have repeatedly opened the book at different pages and got immersed into the articles which are written in a condensed yet always understandable and reader friendly style They fall into different categories eg dealing with other writers that have influenced Dickens or lived in his day and age with aspects of Dickens s life with Dickens as a writer there are items on Dickens s composition allowing insight into his writing habits or on characterization for instance with aspects of Victorian life that a reader should know about in order to understand their Dickens better eg articles about the legal or the penal system and about London and last not least with Dickens s works his novels and his shorter fiction There is also an interesting article on plagiarisms of Dickens which helped me understand why Dickens fought so bitterly for a copyright lawA few things I missed for example an article on the hack writer George WM Reynolds he is treated in connection with the article on plagiarism though or on Mrs Wood and Mary Elizabeth Braddon and maybe the book is not really exhaustive in other respects but considering that it is one single volume it is as informative and fascinating as it could possibly be So thumbs up and an unrestricted recommendation for this uarry of well written and carefully researched information which has been collected by a number of acknowledged Dickens experts It will surely be an invaluable companion for my further explorations into the wonderful world of my favourite writer
