Editorial Reviews

An account of Dickens' novel in its manuscript, proof and printed versions; a survey of editions, adaptations, and responses to the novel from 1840 until 1985. Limited to material published in English. Revised from papers presented at a conference in April 1986, 13 essays re-evaluate the nature of intimate relations in the middle ages. They explore the relations between love and companionship, equality, and power; and between expressions of love and creativity, literacy, voyeurism, chastity, hate and other issues. The overall impression is that people used to do it in a very scholarly manner. A paper edition is available (0440-4, $17.95). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
