Robert Butterworth

Dickens, Religion and Society

€ 101.15


`Dickens`s social criticism is one of the most famous and important aspects of his works. This book explores the centrality of his religious attitudes to his attacks on the social ills of his day. After discussing how deeply engaged Dickens was with his religion, the author links him to a group of political and religious campaigners who were pioneering the application of Christian moral precepts to social issues. The perspective this gave him on society is examined in detailed studies of several novels. Looking at his works from this angle sheds important new light on a number of cruxes and controversies in Dickens`s oeuvre, including the portrayal of Fagin as a villainous Jew, the hostile depiction of trade unions in Hard Times, the apparent weakness ofDickens`s remedy of a `change of heart` to society`s ills, and the presence of sentimentality in his novels`-
