9780521001243: Dickens on Screen

Television and movies, not libraries or scholarship, have made Charles Dickens the most important unread novelist in English. In addition to the millions of people already deploying the word "Dickensian" to describe their own and others' lives, many more who have never read Dickens are familiar with the term. They know of him because they have access to over a century of adaptations of his works for movies and television. Including an exhaustive filmography, this work will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars.

Book Description Book 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.
