The Victorian City

Everyday Life in Dickens' London

Judith Flanders

Much as Mr Micawber offered to guide the young David Copperfield, new to London, through 'the arcana of the Modern Babylon', Judith Flanders aims to explore the streets of the city as Dickens and his fellow Londoners experienced them. In four parts, the book covers travelling and working, markets, slums and food, street entertainments, nightlife and violence; and vividly describes every facet of city life from produce sellers arriving at dawn to prostitutes on the streets after dark.
