Description

What did Dickens mean to Dostoevsky, and what did the Russian writer owe to England’s greatest entertainer? Many of Dickens’ readers, including George Gissing and Edmund Wilson, have recognized that his achievement needs to be compared with Dostoevsky’s, and they have suspected, or assumed an influence. N M Lary’s book shows what the literary influence really or probably was.
