This is a register of the characters in the fiction of Charles Dickens a€“ a catalogue of the men, women and children who people his stories. Perhaps the first attempt this century, Dickens Study Guide brings together the works of Charles Dickens in such a way that the reader can find out in a moment how Little Ema€™ly lost her virtue and what happened to Bill Sikes or the Artful Dodger. Dealing with over 200 characters across all fifteen novels and three short works, the book contains a key, register and concise accounts of each man, woman and child, who they are and how they influence the plot. Providing descriptions used by Dickens himself and without fussy a€˜literarya€™ interpretation, this is intended as a practical work of reference. Finishing off with a quiz that puzzle-setters and crossword enthusiasts will love, Dickens Study Guide is the ideal companion for students and indeed any lover of Dickens who wants to look up quickly why Peggotty laughed when told that a€œBarkis is willina€™a€ba€Miss Havisham pays for Pip to be his apprentice; the indentures are cancelled when Pip gets his a€œGreat Expectationsa€. ... Joe happily married to his old friend Biddy; in the corner of the living room sits another little boy who looks just like Pip looked years ago: it ... The marriage is unhappy; he is killed after mistreating a horse.
