Charles Dickens constantly eludes critical interpretation. While there have been commentaries on his humor, his seriousness, his social concerns, and other specific aspects of his work, such accounts have tended only to divide our understanding of the novels, to lead us to see them as failures of artistic unity. It is this question of unity that provides the keynote of Dr. Daldry's book. The author seeks a language that can treat the diverse aspects of reader, writer and text as a unityóit thus extends Robert Newsom's analysis of ^IBleak House to the oeuvre as a whole. The thesis is worked out in detail with reference to several of the novels, and represents a challenging re-evaluation of Dickens' achievement as a novelist.^R

PETER DONAHUE’S DEBUT NOVEL MADISON HOUSE, which won the Langum Prize for Historical Fiction 2005, chronicles turn-of-the-century Seattle’s explosive transformation from frontier outpost to major metropolis. Maddie Ingram, owner of Madison House, and her quirky and endearing boarders find their lives inextricably linked when the city decides to re-grade Denny Hill and the fate of Madison House hangs in the balance--Maddie’s albino handyman and furtive love interest, a muckraking black journalist who owns and publishes the Seattle Sentry newspaper, and an aspiring stage actress forced into prostitution and morphine addiction while working in the city’s corrupt vaudeville theater, all call Madison House home. Had E.L. Doctorow and Charles Dickens met on the streets of Seattle, they couldn’t have created a better book.

Oliver Twist

A new dramatization of one of the angriest, funniest and most deeply felt stories about childhood ever written.

Author: Neil Bartlett

Publisher: Oberon Books

ISBN:

Category: Drama

Page: 96

View: 619

‘It is a solemn thing to hear, in a darkened room, the voice of a child...’ Using Charles Dickens’ original words, a handful of tunesstolen from the vivid world of Victorian music-hall, and a chameleon ensemble of thirteen actors, Neil Bartlett’s powerful version of Oliver Twist brings the dark underbelly of nineteenth-century London back to bold theatrical life. The unforgettable characters – Fagin, Nancy, Bill Sikes, and the Artful Dodger – inhabit a world filled with images of danger and fear, innocence and hope; a world seen through the eyes of an astonished child. This version was first performed at the Lyric Hammersmith in 2004.
