    Routledge Library Editions: Charles Dickens Volume 3

    By A. O. J. Cockshut

    This book describes Charles Dickens as an ordinary man who by being perfectly tuned to the public taste developed into a master of his art. The clue to this paradox lies, in the author’s opinion, in Dickens’ obsession with such topics as money, crowds and prisons which touch the life of everyone....
