Inhaltsangabe

A short life of Dickens which celebrates the impact of the theatre on his life and work. Two hundred years after his death, Dickens's work is more popular than ever, in a variety of media, most of them undreamed of during his lifetime. Over the last few decades of intensive research, Dickens the man has become much better known to us and the sheer originality of his personality blazes forth as never before. Unique in so many ways, he is certainly the only major novelist - perhaps the only novelist ever - to have been a compelling performer in his own right, playing to spellbound audiences of up to four thousand all over the English-speaking world.

Theatre was central to his life, from his earliest years as a child entertainer in Portsmouth pubs, to his reluctant retirement from 'these garish lights' barely a year before his death. He wrote plays, he acted in them; he stage-managed them, all with fanatical perfectionism. Dickens's novels are famously filled with unforgettable descriptions of performers, from Sleary and his troupe in Hard Times to the Infant Phenomenon and the rest of the glorious Crummleses in Nicholas Nickleby.

As a writer, he was a compulsive performer. His very imagination was theatrical, his method that of the stage, both in terms of plot devices and construction of character. There is in his writing a palpable sense of him reaching out to his readers, his public, courting their favour, speaking on their behalf, stirring them, building their applause. Simon Callow explores this extraordinary theatrical core to Dickens in this short life of one of our greatest novelists.
