Dickens Redressed by Alexander Welsh

Book Description

With Bleak House and Hard Times, Charles Dickens inaugurated a series of novels now known as "later Dickens"-works with a darker mood and more strident satire than his earlier fiction. Though immensely popular, these books are only partly understood, Alexander Welsh contends. In this sequel to his acclaimed From Copyright to Copperfield, Welsh closely examines the two novels and reassesses a crucial stage of Dickens's career.

Books By Author Alexander Welsh

Humanist Comedy by Alexander Welsh Humanist Comedy, Paperback (July 2014)

From the ancient Greek comedies of Aristophanes, the famous poem by Lucretius and dialogues of Cicero to early modern and Enlightenment essays and philosophical texts, the author analyzes the prevalence of openness of mind and relieving good humour in Western thought. He also examines a postmodern novel by the Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago.

Hamlet in His Modern Guises by Alexander Welsh Hamlet in His Modern Guises, Hardback (January 2001)

Focusing on Shakespeare's "Hamlet" as foremost a study of grief, this book offers an analysis of its protagonist as the archetype of the modern hero. It situates "Hamlet" within the context of family and mourning as it was presented in other revenge tragedies of Shakespeare's time.
