  • Charles Dickens's International Copyright Advocacy and Its Indirect
           Reflection in Martin Chuzzlewit

    • Abstract: Charles Dickens's 1842 American tour was largely marked by his tireless campaign for an international copyright law, the absence of which had affected both himself and his numerous literary predecessors. However necessary the changes to the US printing culture were, and much as Dickens's resentment was warranted, his battle for a fair treatment of foreign writers in America in the early 1840s was ill-timed, imprudent, and ill-fated, as it failed to take into consideration the cultural differences between his native and host countries, as well as historical and current circumstances that affected the New World's mid-19th century publishing.1 Despite Dickens's public protestations that he had never intended to ...

  • Dickens and the Historical Imagination

    • Abstract: The Victorians were fascinated with the past–learning about it, learning from it, recreating it. During the nineteenth century, an awareness of history–and a sense of discontinuity between past and present–became, as Stephen Bann puts it, "a substratum to almost every type of cultural activity" (7). The Gothic revival in architecture, the vogue for meticulously researched historical costumes on stage, and the popularity of the historical novel have all been cited as indicators of this cultural shift; but others might be adduced. Mark Westgarth, for example, notes that the number of antique shops in the metropolis rose from ten to two hundred in the early decades of the nineteenth century–a plethora of curiosity ... Read More

  • The Morality of Fiction-Making in Our Mutual Friend

    • Abstract: "Some people have an extraordinary feeling in regard to works of fiction; they think it sinful either to write or to read them." So begins an unsigned article entitled "The Spirit of Fiction," which was issued in All the Year Round on 27 July 1867, two years after the publication of the final instalment of Dickens's last complete novel, Our Mutual Friend. The article defends the literary significance of John Francis Campbell's four-volume collection of fairy-tales and fables, Popular Tales of the West Highlands (1860–62), which "some worthy pedagogues" (118) found morally detrimental. The anonymous writer claims that all human beings have a fundamental instinct to create fables out of everything they hear or see ... Read More

  • "Particulars as to the Proposed Interment of Charles Dickens at Rochester"

    • Abstract: Attention has been drawn recently to the circumstances of Dickens's funeral. Robert Garnett has argued that, by stipulating that the ceremony be strictly private and unannounced, Dickens effectively ensured that Ellen Ternan could attend as one of the mourners. Leon Litvack has assembled evidence that, well before the appearance of the Times article calling for the burial to be at Westminster Abbey, its Dean made known his willingness to bury Dickens there. Emily Bell has presented a meta-biographical reading of the way in which the death of Dickens has been presented.The present article examines a related matter: that Dickens's burial was initially planned to take place in Kent. The following are considered: ... Read More

  • "An Evening with Charles Dickens" on the Nineteenth-Century Lecture

    • Abstract: The centrality of Dickens to critical interest in the study of Victorian afterlives and to the rise of celebrity culture in the nineteenth century has been widely recognized over the past decade or so. However, as Juliet John noted in 2018, "Research on Dickensian afterlives has overwhelmingly tended to focus on Dickens's posthumous relationship with the screen and on the re-presentation of versions of Dickens's works since his death" (756). One aspect of the posthumous "remediation" of Dickens that has received relatively little attention is the work of those contemporaries who capitalized upon his celebrity on the lecture circuit after his death.1 The development of the transnational lecture tour was a central ...

  • Dickens and the Bible: "What Providence Meant" by Jennifer Gribble

    • Abstract: In an oft-cited 1859 letter to Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens compared the construction of a novel to the "ways of Providence": "I think the business of art is to lay all [the] ground carefully, but with the care that conceals itself–to show, by a backward light, what everything has been working to–but only to suggest, until the fulfilment comes. These are the ways of Providence" (qtd. in Gribble 2).Far too often, literary critics have taken this–and other Victorian references to "providence"–as signaling an investment in teleological plots with tidy resolutions, animated (they imply) by naïve optimism in God's beneficent design. Take, for instance, Tina Young Choi's recent argument (drawn from critics such as ... Read More

  • The Artful Dickens: Tricks and Ploys of the Great Novelist by John Mullan

    • Abstract: John Mullan is the current Lord Northcliffe Chair of Modern English Literature at University College London. It is a position with a certain profile in Dickens studies, albeit attached to broader interests and with affinities to literary journalism more than strictly academic research. Previous holders of the Chair have included Karl Miller, founding editor of the London Review of Books, who wrote vividly and eccentrically about Dickens in Doubles (1985) (and for whom, as an awed and besotted student, I wrote my own first essay on Bleak House), and John Sutherland, in whose copious writings about the entire range of Victorian fiction Dickens frequently appears. The Artful Dickens is dedicated to Sutherland, and ... Read More

  • Extraction Ecologies and the Literature of the Long Exhaustion by
           Elizabeth Carolyn Miller (review)

    • Abstract: Elizabeth Carolyn Miller's much-anticipated Extraction Ecologies and the Literature of the Long Exhaustion is a rich and moving contribution to the rapidly evolving field of the energy humanities. Examining a wide range of fiction published between the 1830s and early 1930s, Miller explores the historical period during which Britain became a nation and then a global empire based upon a variety of forms of extraction, and her focus is on the ways in which extractivism "produced new genres and transformed old genres as literature intersected with industrialism and its impacts on the natural world" (22). Taking as her premise the conceptual deficit that has been created by the ways in which "our critical understanding ... Read More

  • The Aesthetics of Space in Nineteenth-Century British Literature,
           1843–1907 by Giles Whiteley (review)

    • Abstract: This book begins with a lip-smacking "Prologue" in which, in Joris-Karl Huysmans's novel À rebours (1884), the protagonist, des Esseintes, plans a trip to London but then actually experiences London in Paris, through encountering English food, people, food, weather, atmosphere–even cutlery– and decides there is no need for him actually to cross the Channel. "It would be madness," he concludes, "to risk spoiling such unforgettable experiences by a clumsy change of locality" (17). This is a clever introduction to Whiteley's central concern, the development in the late nineteenth-century of an "aesthetics of space" which, moving away from the earlier "realist" tradition, "attempts to find new ways to speak about how ...
