Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, Bleak House ... Charles Dickens created riotous fictional worlds peopled by larger-than-life characters and packed with vivid images and drama. This entertaining and accessible companion to the novels - arranged alphabetically from 'Amuthement' to 'Zoo Horrors', via Baby Farming, Circumlocution, Onions and Spontaneous Combustion - excavates the hidden links between Dickens's themes, preoccupations and characters, and the minutiae of his endlessly inventive wordplay.
