Summary
"Hobsbaum begins with a brief discussion of Dickens's political reportage and his pamphleteering for prison reform, and describes the earliest works. In the main part of the book, the novels - early, middle, and late - are treated in equal detail. Little Dorrit, which many consider Dickens's finest creation, is a highlight of Hobsbaum's study. In dealing with the last works, he includes a unique perspective to the unfinished The mystery of Edwin Drood"--from publisher
