This volume brings together a variety of new, classic, and contemporary essays on Dickens's most widely read works. The volume begins with a brief biography of Dickens and an examination of the time when Dickens wrote his most influential works. The essays that follow help the reader understand the critical issues surrounding Dickens's work, including an examination of the relationship between the orphan and urban society in Oliver Twist, a reading of Great Expectations as a sort of moral fable, and the structure and mythical dimensions of Bleak House.
