Dickens and the Moving Age (lecture)
Free public lecture from Gresham College. Available as video, audio and transcript.
The age in which Dickens lived saw enormous changes in travel and transport: his writing reflects their impact on people’s lives. He was a great traveller, visiting the United States twice and Europe regularly. His writing, both in fiction and journalism, constantly takes its ‘impress from the moving age’.
