Críticas:

"A composite portrait of the writer and the age. It will prove invaluable to scholars, readers, and admirers of Dickens into the next century and beyond."--The Times (London)"This excellent work gives the user a renewed appreciation for the tremendous range of Dickens's interests and talents and provides fresh insights into the age in which he lived. Its strong emphasis on and extensive coverage of the political, social, and artistic milieu surround Dickens and his circle set it apart from...Charles Dickens A to Z, which treats those aspects much more briefly."--Booklist"The Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens succeeds wonderfully in its stated aim 'to illuminate the active interrelation between the man, his writings and activities, and his time.' It is a dense compendium of scholarship, but it is also leavened with delightful details."--Times Literary Supplement (London)"This book represents an important contemporary resource, of value to both the general reader and the specialist."--Library Journal"Paul Schlicke provides an impressive depth of literary and historical context--from Dr. Johnson's influence on Dickens to Dickens's attitude toward Jews and the publishing history of his magazine, Household Words."--Publishers Weekly "A composite portrait of the writer and the age.

Reseña del editor:

The Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens offers in one volume a lively and authoritative compendium of information about Dickens: his life, his works, his reputation and his cultural context. In addition to entries on his works, his characters, his friends and places mentioned in his works, it includes extensive information about the age in which he lived and worked: the people, events, and institutions which provided the context for his work; the houses he lived in, the countries he visited, the ideas he satirised, the circumstances he responded to, the culture he participated in. Compiled by a distinguished editorial team, The Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens provides a synthesis of the state of the art of Dickens studies and contains a more authoritative, concise, extensive and accessible range of information than any other reference work on Dickens.
