AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This volume of essays provides a selection of leading contemporary scholarship which situates Dickens in a global perspective. The articles address four main areas: Dickens's reception outside Britain and North America; his intertextual relations with and influence upon writers from different parts of the world; Dickens as traveller; and the presence throughout his fiction and journalism of subjects, such as race and empire, that extend beyond the national contexts in which his work is usually considered. Written by leading researchers from diverse countries and cultures, this is an indispensable reference work in the field of Dickens studies.

First Steps toward a History of the Mid-Victorian Novel in Colonial Australia, Tim Dolin , single work criticism
The author's approach is 'to use quantitative reading data to analyse the circulation of Victorian written culture in a range of Australian colonial contexts, and to construct from that analysis locally situated re-readings of well-known and lesser-known novels' (275). By looking at library records and establishing borrowing patterns, Dolin examines reading culture in colonial South Australia, using as an example the reception and impact of Dickens's Great Expectations.
