Product Description

'All who love Dickens have a strange sense that he is really inexhaustible.' That was G.K. Cheaterton's impression of Dicken's mature journalism and it still holds true. Dickens was always on the move. in his imagination and in the mile upon mile of noctural walks he made around London. He travelled, either literally or figuratively, to prisons, theaters, slums, the Inns of Court, on journeys to the Continent and back to his childhood in Kent and London. For this volume David Pascoe has selected from the pieces Dickens wrote after he founded Household Words in 1850 until his death in 1870. It contains 'Night Walks', 'On Strike' and 'New Year's Day' which are among Dicken's most remarkable pieces. His aim was to catch the imagination of a public beseiged, as we are now, by hack journalism. He does so by concentrating and writing 'for the time being, as if there were nothing else to be done in the world - the only likely way I know of, of doing anything'.

Publisher's Description

A testament to the energy and creativity of a writer and journalist without equal, Charles Dickens's Selected Journalism 1850-1870 is edited with an introduction and notes by David Pascoe in Penguin Classics. Throughout his writing career Charles Dickens was a hugely prolific journalist. This volume of his later work is selected from pieces that he wrote after he founded the journal Household Words in 1850, up until his death in 1870. Here subjects as varied as his nocturnal walks around London slums, prisons, theatres and Inns of Court, journeys to the continent and his childhood in Kent and London are captured in remarkable pieces such as 'Night Walks', 'On Strike', 'New Year's Day' and 'Lying Awake'. Aiming to catch the imagination of a public besieged by hack journalism, these writings are an extraordinary blend of public and private, news and recollection, reality and fantastic description. David Pascoe's introduction traces the development of Dickens's career as a journalist and examines his fusion of real events with flights of fancy. This edition also includes explanatory notes, a bibliography and a Dickens chronology. Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, David Copperfield and The Pickwick Papers, have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you enjoyed Selected Journalism 1850 - 1870, you might like Dickens's Sketches by Boz, also available in Penguin Classics.
