Posthumous and Prenatal Dickens

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

This paper addresses Dickens’s interest in life after death (or its absence), and, more strangely, life before birth. Starting from passages in David Copperfield and Our Mutual Friend that suggest a view of terrestrial existence as a middle space, I examine the extent to which Dickens’s ideas on this matter are consistent and coherent, and how they relate to the earthly plotting of his narratives.
