      Allusions throughout to Dickens’ close kinship with Romantic poets, from Wordsworth to Wallace Stevens, in their treatment of imagination, memory, and dream; to his influence on modern experimental stylists from Joyce to Nabokov; to his psychological themes and surrealistic techniques exemplified in contemporary painting and film—all these.   The relationship between the work of Charles Dickens and popular literature has often been noted, but the extent to which his fiction and journalism were rooted in, and continued to respond to, the popular radical culture of his time had so far been unexplored.

Wilson brilliantly revisits the wellspring of Dickens's vast and wild imagination, to reveal at long last why his novels captured the hearts of nineteenth century readers--and why they continue to resonate today. The Mystery of Charles Dickens is illustrated with 30 black-and-white images.   Charles Dickens's experience and imagining of creativity is at the heart of his self-awareness, subject-matter and narrative. His intelligence works intuitively rather than conceptually and ideas about imagination often emerge informally in personal letters and implicitly through characters, language and story. His self-analysis and reflexive tendency are embedded in his styles and forms of.
