About this deal

I suspect my ignorance of the time period prevented me from latching on to any narrative flow that might have carried me through. This book is a collection of essays written by Charles Dickens, telling about his wanderings through London.

The lack of sight inflates the feeling of isolation and with the limited noise makes you feel startled at any unanticipated sounds. During his travels he visits workhouses, children’s hospitals and chats with many of the poor people living on the margins of society. Unos curiosos y fecundos textos, gracias a los cuales podemos ver que Dickens fue “uno de los grandes visionarios de la ciudad, en toda su diversidad y crueldad”. This Penguin Great Ideas edition is a must-read for those interested in Dickens or the London he knew. Les thèmes abordés ont eu très peu de résonance en moi, bien que j’aime bcp les nouvelles avec un style très descriptif.Dickens describes his nightly London so well, creates such an uncanny atmosphere, touches on so many themes like homelessness, social injustice, poverty, mental health, in a mere 15 pages.

Following on from his father’s issue with debt his family were held in the marshalsea prison while he worked in Warren’s Blacking factory off the strand. Bunların genelinde Dickens'ın romanlarında da sık sık yer verdiği, dönemin İngilteresinin geliri oldukça düşük olan ve zor şartlar altında yaşamaya çalışan kişilerin hayatlarının aktarıldığını söylemek mümkün.Son 25 libros aunque yo sólo poseo tres: "El gran inquisidor" de Fiódor Dostoievski, "Días de lectura" de Marcel Proust y este de Dickens. I have fallen insensibly into this habit, both because it favours my infirmity and because it affords me greater opportunity of speculating on the characters and occupations of those who fill the streets. In the summer I often leave home early in the morning, and roam about fields and lanes all day, or even escape for days or weeks together; but, saving in the country, I seldom go out until after dark, though, Heaven be thanked, I love its light and feel the cheerfulness it sheds upon the earth, as much as any creature living. Apenas ocho textos componen la edición de este libro, preparada por Taurus en su colección “Great Ideas” (la cual aborda libros que “han transformado la manera en que nos vemos a nosotros mismos y a los demás.
