Every now and then, disillusioned by modern literature, I return to Dickens. I have just read "Our Mutual Friend" Dickens wonderful word pictures of people, every character vivid and believable is far beyond anyone writing today.

A lovely twenty volume collection of the collected works of Charles Dickens. This folio was produced for mass consumption, so cheaper paper was used. The pages are now extremely brittle.

Otherwise ... It's Charles Dickens. ( )

Includes the major works by one of the greatest names in literature. Namely, Great Expectations, Hard Times, A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities.

Other titles in this Library of Literary Classics series include: Charlotte & Emily Bronte: The Complete Novels; Edgar Allan Poe: Selected Works; Mark Twain: Selected Works; Jane Austen: The Complete Novels: Lewis Carroll: The Complete, Fully Illustrated Works; and William Shakespeare: The Complete Works. Four literary classics; 'Great Expectations', 'Hard Times', 'A Christmas Carol', and 'A Tale of Two Cities'. The four books collected here reveal much of Dicken's development as a novelist. His early works lampooned the abuses of society, but with a confidence that they could be overcome with goodwill and common sense.
