Dickens, Charles: Reprinted Pieces (Illustrated). v2. 24th Aug 2009
The stories and articles in this volume are reprinted from Dickens' weekly magazine Household Words, published between 1850 and 1859. The pieces collected here cover the full range of Dickens' journalism - stories, reminiscences, descriptions, and criticism. Great writers are rarely great journalists, but Dickens is an exception, and his occasional pieces can be read with pleasure some 150 years after they were written.
This volume also contains two additional stories, The Lamplighter and To Be Read at Dusk, and also Sunday Under Three Heads, an early piece written against the Sunday Observance Act Bill of 1836, in which Dickens points out that that all the restrictions imposed by the Bill affected only the lower classes; the rich retained their servants, and carriages even on Sunday and could continue to amuse themselves as they wished; only the poor would suffer.
EDIT: 22 Mar 08
