Dickens and the Victorian City

Dickens and the Victorian City

Description

When we think of Dickens and the Victorian City, we think of Dickens and London. While it is impossible to underestimate the importance of London in Dickens' work, readers, critics, and enthusiasts inevitably ignore the indirect influence of those other English villages, towns and cities in which Dickens lived, worked, and played, including Portsmouth, the city in which he was born.

Focussing on aspects such as crime, poverty, education, women, and public entertainment, this book highlights those points at which Portsmouth becomes visible in Dickens' works,and looks at Victorian Portsmouth.

Tennyson's Celebrity Circle Booklet

Description

This booklet tells the story of how the most famous poet of the Victorian period, Alfred Tennyson, attempted to extricate himself from his own celebrity by relocating, in 1853, to Freshwater on the Isle of Wight.

It explores how this event led to the creation of one of the most renowned celebrity circles of his age, a circle that included the most famous female photographer of the day, Julia Margaret Cameron; the most famous artist and sculptor, G. F. Watts; and two writers, Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll, who, although less well known at the time, later came to achieve a literary celebrity that is indisputable.
