Set in London at the time of the Gordon Riots of 1780, Barnaby Rudge interweaves a murder mystery with the story of Lord George Gordon's dangerous appeal to old religious prejudices against Roman Catholics. The brilliant descriptions of the destruction of Newgate prison by the rioters contain some of Dickens's most vivid writing.
This was Dickens' fifth published novel, published in 1841.
