Recent Dickens Studies and Adaptations: 2009
Abstract:This study summarizes the extensive body of Dickens scholarship produced in 2009, including discussion of over one hundred articles and books. While attempting to be comprehensive, the survey calls attention to works of special merit that may have a lasting impact on Dickens studies. In addition, the survey addresses several recent Dickens-related adaptations in film, fiction, and the graphic novel (represented by a sampling of illustrations) and offers some speculations about the current surge in pop-culture appropriations of Dickens, particularly the fascination of contemporary novelists with the final years of Dickens's life. The materials are organized under the following headings: Intertextual and Cross-Cultural Influences; Gender, Sexuality, Marriage, and Children; Science, Religion, and Philosophy; Law, Economics, and Politics; Victorian Media and Spectacle; Geographical Spaces; Studies of Adaptations in Fiction and Film; Studies of Individual Works; Biographies and Reference Works; and Recent Adaptations: Graphic Novels, Films, and Fiction.
