It is impossible to overstate the importance of British novelist CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) not only to literature in the English language, but to Western civilization on the whole. He is arguably the first fiction writer to have become an international celebrity. He popularized episodic fiction and the cliffhanger, which had a profound influence on the development of film and television. He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge, from Miss Havisham to Uriah Heep-have become not merely iconic, but mythic. But it was his stirring portraits of ordinary people-not the upper classes or the aristocracy-and his fervent cries for social, moral, and legal justice for the working poor, and in particular for poor children, in the grim early decades of the Industrial Revolution that powerfully impacted social concerns well into the 20th century. Without Charles Dickens, we may never have seen the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Upton Sinclair, or even Bob Dylan. Here, in 30 beautiful volumes-complete with all the original illustrations-is every published word written by one of the most important writers ever. The essential collector's set will delight anyone who cherishes English literature...and who takes pleasure in constantly rediscovering its joys. This volume contains Part I of David Copperfield, which was originally serialized in standalone installments in 1849. Dickens drew on his own life story for this tale of the life of the title character, and it is considered the most autobiographical of his works. It was Dickens's own favorite, and the work considered the best by many literary observers, including Tolstoy.

This volume contains Part I of Our Mutual Friend, Dickens's final novel, which was originally serialized in standalone installments in 1864-65. A satire on avarice and the power of money to influence human behavior, it is Dickens's most sophisticated work, and the fullest expression of the writer's authority and persuasiveness.

Der Klassiker unter den Dickens-Biographien: Forsters Biographie in drei Bänden erschien kurz nach Charles Dickens‘ Tod im Jahre 1870 und wurde schnell zu einem Standardwerk. Es lebt von der engen und langjährigen Freundschaft des Kritikers und Herausgebers John Forster mit dem berühmten Schriftsteller. Ohne literaturwissenschaftliche Pedanterie sieht er das Leben und den Charakter des Verfassers zeitloser Werke wie „Oliver Twist“ oder „A Christmas Carol“. Dabei wechseln sich packende Berichte aus erster Hand mit umfangreichen Auszügen aus dem Briefwechsel der beiden Freunde ab. Und da auch in fast all seinen Briefen seine besondere Meisterschaft des Erzählens zum Tragen kommt, wird jeder, der gerne Dickens liest, auch an dieser Biographie Gefallen finden. Die vorliegende Ausgabe greift auf die souveräne Übersetzung des Philologen Friedrich Althaus (1829-1897) zurück, die denselben Zeitgeist atmet wie das Werk Dickens‘.
