  • Information


First published in 1987. Many Victorian novels that considered social problems made extensive use of contemporary source material for their descriptions.

This book aims to provide a greater acquaintance with this non-literary material — illustrating and exemplifying issues that the authors treated imaginatively.

The material is divided into parts dealing with: the industrial north of England, London and the agricultural poor.

Extracts from writings that bear directly on the fiction of writers like Dickens and Gaskell are featured, as are Government Blue Books and newspaper reports and articles.

This volume also contains articles by Dickens and others, from his magazine, Household Words.
