Television and film, not libraries or scholarship, have made Charles Dickens the most important unread novelist in English. It is not 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 know what Dickensian means. They know 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 novelists, he has become, somewhat ironically, one of the foremost novelists in the English canon. 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.

Review:

"Raises a number of issues that are pertinent to the many debates that center around the translation of nineteenth-century fiction into film more generally..." Kate Flint, Studies in English Literature

"For such a reader, this book offers a fresh and, at times, irreverent perspective on the complex interactions between film and literature...Glavin's collection lays a strong foundation upon which to build." Dickens Quarterly, Cara Lane, University of Washington

Book Description:

Book Description Condition: New. Millions of people who have never read Charles Dickens know about him through access to more than a century of adaptations of his work for the big and small screen. He has become, somewhat ironically, one of the foremost novelists in the English canon; ironic because it was just this capacity to entertain that once confined him to the margins of the 'great tradition' in fiction. This volume includes scholarly essays offering innovative approaches to film and television adaptations of Dickens's work, an interview with the actress, Miriam Margolyes, and an exhaustive filmography.
