Oliver Twist , A Tale of Two Cities , Great Expectations , Bleak House and Nicholas Nickleby - just some of the novels that have made Charles Dickens an internationally celebrated author. Much of Dickens' work was dominated by Victorian London - a place of squalor, vice and crime. This title also explores the Britain the author inhabited.
Martin Fido was Andrew Bradley Junior Research Fellow in English Literature at Balliol College, Oxford and thereafter taught English at the Universities of Leeds, and the West Indies. He was also a visiting professor at Michigan State University. His short illustrated life of Dickens (Hamlyn 1970) was hailed by The Dickensian magazine as one of the two best books marking the centenary of Dickens' death. Martin's translation of Louis Cazamian's Le Roman Social en Angleterre was nominated for the Soott Monrieff Prize and in addition to his many books on literature, he has published many articles in learned journals, usually dealing with nineteenth century novelists such as Dickens, Thackeray, Disraeli and Jane Austen. Martin lives in Kent, the heart of Dickens' country.
