About this product
- DescriptionTelevision and film, t libraries or scholarship, have made Charles Dickens the most important unread velist in English. It is t merely that millions of people feel comfortable deploying the word 'Dickensian' to describe their own and others' lives, but that many more people who have never read Dickens kw what Dickensian means. They kw about Dickens because they have access to over a century of adaptations for the big and small screen. Because Dickens has proven to be the most easily adapted of major velists, he has become, somewhat ironically, one of the foremost velists in the English can. This is ironic because it was just this capacity to entertain that once confined him to the margins of the 'great tradition' in fiction. Dickens on Screen is an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike. It provides an exhaustive filmography and is well illustrated.
