The Mudfog Papers, a collection of sketches by Charles Dickens, describes the local politics of the fi ctional town of Mudfog – such as thedelusions of grandeur of its mayor Nicholas Tulrumble and his disastrous attempts at putting on a public show – and the meetings of its Society for the Advancement of Everything, during which the town is overrun by illustrious scientists and professors conducting ostensibly pointless research.

From the introductory note. The papers contained in this little volume were written by Charles Dickens for the early numbers of "Bentley's Miscellany." The manuscripts of the two meetings of the Mudfog Association, and of "Mr. Robert Bolton, the gentleman connected with the Press," in my possession, are covered with corrections, erasures, and additions. At that time Charles Dickens wrote a freer and bolder hand than he came to write in later years, and these manuscripts are easily decipherable. Something perhaps of the comparative freedom 'of the handwriting of these sketches, when set the side of the manuscript of "Our Mutual Friend," may be owing to the quill pen, with whose exit has gone out much of that free and graceful penmanship of which Mr. Lupton reminds us that Thomas Tomkins, of St. Paul's School, was so unrivalled a teacher. -GEORGE BENTLEY.

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Mudfog and Other Sketches by Charles Dickens. It was written by Charles Dickens and published from 1837 to 1838 in the monthly Bentley's Miscellany literary journal, which he was later editing. The Mudfog Papers recounts the proceedings of a fictional society, The Mudfog Society for the Advancement of Everything, a Pickwickian parody of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. The latter, founded in York in 1831, was one of the many Victorian scholarly societies dedicated to the advancement of science. Like The Pickwick Papers, The Mudfog Papers affirms its affinity for parliamentary reports, memoirs, and posthumous documents. The series was illustrated by George Cruikshank. The fictional town of Mudfog was based at Chatham in Kent, where Dickens spent part of his youth.When Oliver Twist first appeared in Bentley's Miscellany in February 1837, Mudfog was described by Dickens as the city where Oliver was born and spent his early years, causing Oliver Twist to be related to The Mudfog Papers, but this allusion was removed when the novel was published as a book. Charles Dickens - Charles John Huffam Dickens FRSA (February 7, 1812 - June 9, 1870) was an English writer and social critic.

The Mudfog Papers was written by Victorian era novelist Charles Dickens and published from 1837-38 in the monthly literary serial Bentley's Miscellany, which he then edited. The Mudfog Papers relates the proceedings of a fictional society, 'The Mudfog Society for the Advancement of Everything', a Pickwickian parody of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. (The latter, founded in York in 1831, was one of numerous Victorian learned societies dedicated to the advancement of Science.) Like The Pickwick Papers, The Mudfog Papers claim affinity with parliamentary reports, memoirs, and posthumous papers. The serial was illustrated by George Cruikshank. The fictional town of Mudfog was based on Chatham in Kent, where Dickens spent part of his youth. When Oliver Twist first appeared in Bentley's Miscellany in February 1837, Mudfog was described by Dickens as the town where Oliver was born and spent his early years, making Oliver Twist a continuation of The Mudfog Papers; but this allusion was removed when the novel was printed in book form. At the conclusion of his first contribution, about the mayor of the provincial town of Mudfog, Dickens explains that "this is the first time we have published any of our gleanings from this particular source," referring to 'The Mudfog Papers'. He also suggests that "at some future period, we may venture to open the chronicles of Mudfog." The 'Papers' were first published in book form as The Mudfog Papers and Other Sketches in 1880. Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 - 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.

"Academic fans of Dickens's early novels will be gratified by John Bowen's Other Dickens: Pickwick to Chuzzlewit, a ringing defense of the novels Dickens wrote in the first half of his career.... Bowen [demonstrates] a mastery of the body of Dickens criticism.... We owe Bowen a debt of gratitude for delineating so eloquently the politically radical Dickens and for helping us better appreciate his exquisite humor, deep insight into the human condition, and consummate artistry."--College Literature.

Who's Who in Dickens is an accessible guide to the many characters in Charles Dickens' fiction. Dickens' characters are strikingly portrayed and have become a vital part of our cultural heritage - Scrooge has become a by-word for stinginess, Uriah Heep for unctuousness. From the much loved Oliver Twist to the fact-grubbing Mr Gradgrind, the obstinate Martin Chuzzlewit to the embittered Miss Havisham, this book covers the famous and lesser known characters in Dickens. Who's Who in Dickens provides: * an easy-to-use A-Z layout * physical and psychological profiles of the characters * a critical look at his characters by past and present influential commentators * a list of characters and works in which they have appeared * over forty illustrations of major characters drawn by Dickens' contemporaries

"London in the 1830s was undergoing great changes. In the streets old hackney coaches jostled with new omnibuses, night watchmen gave way to the new police, the poor crowded into inner-city slums, and the middle classes colonized genteel new suburbs." "This was young Dickens's city, and he reported it all - the gin palaces, pleasure gardens, streets, shops, prisons, and law courts - as though he were, in Walter Bagehot's words, "a special correspondent for posterity." It was as a journalist that he first made his mark. His very first book, published when he was only twenty-four, was a collection of sketches that had first appeared in newspapers and magazines written under the pen name "Boz." Sketches by Boz was an instant bestseller." "Dickens's knowledge of London was "extensive and peculiar" - like Sam Weller's in Pickwick Papers. "He knew it all, from Bow to Brentford," said one of his friends. In his Sketches the future novelist was marking out his territory, just as, in the pamphlet Sunday Under Three Heads, also included here, the lifelong campaigner against injustice and class oppression was finding his unique voice." "This is the first of four volumes of Dickens's greatest journalism - the first ever annotated edition to be published."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
