0 Reviews
This work argues that Dickens's novels form a multifaceted canon with strong family resemblances (and differences) among its members. The book creates a dynamic model of the Dickensian universe by following three aspects of the canon: the dialectic between fancy and authority, the psychology of symbol and memory, and the relationship between narrator and reader. Illustrated.
