Who's Who in Dickens is an accessible guide to the many characters in Charles Dickens' fiction. Dickens' characters are strikingly portrayed and have become a vital part of our cultural heritage - Scrooge has become a by-word for stinginess, Uriah Heep for unctuousness. From the much loved Oliver Twist to the fact-grubbing Mr Gradgrind, the obstinate Martin Chuzzlewit to the embittered Miss Havisham, this book covers the famous and lesser known characters in Dickens.
Who's Who in Dickens provides:
* an easy-to-use A-Z layout
* physical and psychological profiles of the characters
* a critical look at his characters by past and present influential commentators
* a list of characters and works in which they have appeared
* over forty illustrations of major characters drawn by Dickens' contemporaries

"Hawe's enthusiasm for Dicken's characters is contagious - it is hard not to be charmed by a scholar whose main worry is that he has "omitted [someone's] favourite character."" -Dickens Quarterly "Hawes's enthusiasm for Dickens's characters is contagious- it is hard not to be charmed by a scholar whose main worry is that he has "omitted [someone's] favourite character.." -Timothy A. Spurgin
