Dickens and the Concept of Home

Book - 1990
Rate this:
Beginning with how and why the home became important in the course of the 18th century, Armstrong examines the contradictions in Dickens' treatment of the home, showing how the celebration of cosiness is combined with an ongoing analysis of the problems of homemaking. He shows that Dickens does not see the home as a place of retreat, but as an area of action in which the self can be expressed and can begin to encounter the world.
