About the Authors
  • Television and movies, not libraries or scholarship, have made Charles Dickens the most important unread novelist in English. In addition to the millions of people already deploying the word "Dickensian" to describe their own and others' lives, many more who have never read Dickens are familiar with the term. They know of him because they have access to over a century of adaptations of his works for movies and television. Including an exhaustive filmography, this work will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars.

    • Innovative and exciting perspectives on 100 years of television and film adaptations of Dickens' work
    • In addition to scholarly essays, the volume includes a roundtable discussion and an interview with a prominent Dickensian actress, Miriam Margolyes
    • Covers a broad range of adaptations, from film to television, from early versions to contemporary ones

    "Raises a number of issues that are pertinent to the many debates that center around the translation of nineteenth-century fiction into film more generally..." Kate Flint, Studies in English Literature

    "For such a reader, this book offers a fresh and, at times, irreverent perspective on the complex interactions between film and literature...Glavin's collection lays a strong foundation upon which to build." Dickens Quarterly, Cara Lane, University of Washington
