Reissued to celebrate the bicentenary of Charles Dickens´s birth, The Oxford Companion to Charles Dickens (formerly The Oxford Reader´s Companion to Dickens) draws together an unparalleled diversity of information on one of Britain´s greatest writers: covering his life, his works, his reputation, and his cultural context. Featuring more than 500 A-Z articles, it throws new and often unexpected light on the most familiar of Dickens´s works, and explores the experiences, events, and literature on which he drew. There is also a chronology of Dickens´ life, a list of characters in his works, a list of entries by theme, a family tree, 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 more authoritative and accessible range of information than any other reference work on Dickens. Aspects covered include: The private man and the public figure - his family, friends, colleagues, and convictions The age in which he lived and worked - the people, events, and institutions that informed his writing The places that were significant to him - his homes, his London, and the countries he visited The ideas and social theories of the time - the attitudes he satirized and the ideologies he advocated The works on which his reputation rests - their history, structure, inspiration, and significance.
