THE DEFINITIVE CHARLES DICKENS
Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but-I hope-into a better shape.' -Estella, Great Expectations Charles Dickens (1812-1870) an English novelist, is generally considered the greatest of the Victorian era. Dickens worked as a journalist in political newspapers, making close observations about society in the churn of Industrialization. His work reflects his belief that society's blinding greed for money and its neglect of the lower classes are its major flaws. Through his books, he exhorts virtues of a loving heart and the pleasures of home in a flawed, cruelly indifferent world. The Definitive Charles Dickens includes one of his famous novels, Great Expectations; a play, Is She His Wife; a novella, Master Humphrey's Clock; a short story, The Trial for Murder; and his letters to his friends and family, which allow readers a glimpse of Dickens as a person and how he led his life.

Charles Dickens: Adapted by Neil Bartlett
Using only Charles Dickens’ extraordinary words and a chameleon ensemble of actors, Neil Bartlett's powerful stage versions of Dickens have gathered wide critical acclaim. This collection includes: Great Expectations: From its opening image of little Pip, alone on the windswept marshes, to the haunted darkness of mad Miss Haversham's cobweb-strewn lair, this adaptation takes its audience on a journey right to the heart of Dickens’ great exploration of childhood terrors and hopes – and of adult dreams and regrets. This version was recently directed by Bartlett himself to great acclaim at the Bristol Old Vic. A Christmas Carol: Dickens's story of solitary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of Christmas by a series of ghostly visitors, has proved one of his most well-loved works, and has profoundly influenced our attitude towards the season. Oliver Twist: Bartlett’s powerful version of Oliver Twist brings the dark underbelly of nineteenth-century London back to bold theatrical life. The unforgettable characters inhabit a world filled with images of danger and fear, innocence and hope; a world seen through the eyes of an astonished child. Between them, these adaptations have had over a hundred productions. They have been widely performed by schools, universities and community theatre groups throughout the English-speaking world and theatres that have produced them include London’s Lyric Hammersmith, the Bristol Old Vic, the Southwark Playhouse, the Glasgow Citizens, the American Repertory Theatre in Boston and the La Jolla Playhouse (USA).

The Ghost Stories of Charles Dickens (Fantasy and Horror Classics)
“The Ghost Stories of Charles Dickens” is a collection of twenty of Charles Dickens's best ghost stories, including his famous “Christmas Carol”. A fantastic teller of macabre tales, Dickens presents his full gothic talents in this chilling collection. The stories include: “The Queer Chair - The Bagman's Story”, “A Madman's Manuscript”, “The Goblins who Stole a Sexton”, “The Ghosts of the Mail - The Story of The Bagman's uncle”, “The Baron of Grogzwig”, “To be Read at Dusk”, “Ghost in the Bride's Chamber”, and more. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic famous for having created some of the world's most well-known fictional characters. His works became unprecedentedly popular during his life, and today he is commonly regarded as the greatest Victorian-era novelist. Although perhaps better known for such works as “Great Expectations” and “A Christmas Carol”, Dickens first gained success with the 1836 serial publication of “The Pickwick Papers”, which turned him almost overnight into an international literary celebrity thanks to his humour, satire, and astute observations concerning society and character. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
