Publisher Description

A fascinating, evocative account of 19th-century London, so well-known from Charles Dickens’ much-loved novels.
 
Inside Dickens’ London draws on descriptions of life in the capital from original letters, diaries and newspapers, as well as Dickens’ own social commentary, to paint a vivid portrait of a city undergoing massive social changes. No author has ever described the city of London as well as Dickens. His eye for detail and his gift for characterization moved and entertained readers throughout the world who might never have been to the city. Many of the clichés that crowd our imaginations when we think of London, or of the Victorians, can be traced back to his writings. A unique gazetteer section with a modern-day map allows the reader to discover where places and attractions mentioned in the text can be seen in today’s London
