epstein's accessible dickens 25 janvier 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This excellent, readable book will serve as an introduction to first-time readers of Dickens, for those returning to his novels after long absence and even to those aficionados and scholars interested in fresh and insightful, though always level-headed, readings of their favorite author's work. Ms. Epstein's coverage of the soio-economic background of Victorian England, in which the novels and stories are set, could hardly be bettered. And she is as interesting about what is familiar, such as the often-read "A Christas Carol," as she is about what is unfamiliar, such as the author's dark, uncompleted and rarely read final novel, "The Mystery of Edwin Drood."

Beautifully illustrated, wonderfully written 28 novembre 1999
Par Frank J O'Connor - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Unless you are an academic or must read everything on Dickens, you will not need to read another book on the subject. His life, his literature, his complicated relationships, and his genius are all on view here. The book is both fun to read and to look at. Why don't more publishers take the time, effort and imagination to put together books as charming as this? Also while this is not a debunking treatment, it is no whitewash either. She has dusted off the Victorian icon and brought him back to life.

A Delightful Dickens Companion 10 juillet 1999

This book is a lively companion to the works and life of Charles Dickens, and a splendid read in itself.

Great, but only one problem 15 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I liked this book a lot, and I read passages of it constantly now, since I am a large fan of Dickens. This book is easy to read and to navigate. I enjoy especially the parts like "Twistania" which show some of what people have done and said in response to the books. The one problem I had was with the sections which said that Great Expectations was a novel about mastrubation and homosexuality. Yes, perhaps there is much homoerotic behavior in it, but that doesn't mean that the people in the novel want to have sex with eachother. I find the idea of the deathbed scene with Magwitch and Pip being embaressing because the characters were holding hands is ridiculous. The man was dying, for crissake! I think people really need to ease up and see that most of the same sex relationships in this novel are ones of frienship (Herbert and Pip) or father-son relationship (Pip and Joe, Pip and Magwitch). However, this was the only part of the book that bothered me, I otherwise think this book is great for any Dickensan.
