Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Charles Dickens describes in Night Walks his time as an insomniac, when he decided to cure himself by walking through London in the small hours, and discovered homelessness, drunkenness and vice on the streets. This collection of essays shows Dickens as one of the greatest visionaries of the city in all its variety and cruelty.
GREAT IDEAS. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Dickens was always interested in social reform and his walks tend to take him to the seedier parts of the capital. During his travels he visits workhouses, children’s hospitals and chats with many of the poor people living on the margins of society. At times I felt some of his writing was a little voyeuristic, but then he admitted to being, “unmanned” by the poverty and hunger of the children he came across, and you were once again drawn in.
Obviously, Dickens was a powerful writer and his journalism and eye for detail were (and are) important windows into the poverty of Victorian London. Above all, he treats the companions he talks to as equals and with humanity; never condescending and always interested in human nature. A good read and a nice collection to dip into if you have never read any Dickens before and just want to have an idea of his writing style, before embarking on his, much longer, novels.
