Selected Journalism 1850-1870: 1850-1870
Publisher: Penguin BooksFormat: Paperback
“All who love Dickens have a strange sense he is really inexhaustible”, said G. K. Chesterton of Dickens's mature journalism, and it still holds true. Dickens was always on the move, in his imagination and in his walks around London. This collection showcases Dickens's much admired talent for bringing touches of imagination and entertaining insights to factual accounts of life in London. From vignettes of his journeys through the slums of London to satirical exposes of political and legal scandals, Dickens evokes time, place, and process with a genius that made him, as the critic Walter Bagehot wrote, “a special correspondent for posterity”.
