Going astray: Dickens and London

Front Cover
Pearson Longman, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 360 pages
0 Reviews
The guiding principle of 'Going Astray' is that Dickens' novels not only use London as a backdrop, but that they are about London, even when they seem not to be. The book combines detailed topography and biography with close textual analysis and theoretically informed critiques of most of the novelist's major works.
