Dickens and the Moving Age

Dr Tony Williams

The age in which Dickens lived saw enormous changes in travel and transport: his writing reflects their impact on people’s lives. He was a great traveller, visiting the United States twice and Europe regularly. His writing, both in fiction and journalism, constantly takes its ‘impress from the moving age’.

The other lectures in the series were:      
      Dickens' law makers and law breakers
  
    Dickens and minor legal offences
      Phiz, Dickens and London
