.0000000000Charles Dickens' fascination with ghosts and the macabre is traced to his childhood, to the grim and ghoulish stories told him by his nursemaid, Mary Weller, whom he referred to as Mercy, 'though she had none on me'. Along with the horrors of the 'penny dreadful' magazine, The Terrific Register - a publication which made Dickens 'unspeakably miserable and frightened the very wits out of my head' - the stories recounted by Weller were so powerful as to colour Dickens' imagination and shape much of the enduring fiction he created. This collection brings together all Dickens' ghost stories - twenty in all - including several long tales. Here are chilling histories of coincidence, insanity and revenge.Illustrated by various artists, with an Afterword by David Stuart Davies.

The law courts prevailing over the case of Jarndyce & Jarndyce are overwhelming in their pedantic, futile red-tape bureaucratic adherence to old principles and are partly based on Dickens' time as a young law clerk. With a massive cast of characters--many with ingeniously comic names--and his most complex plot, Bleak House is believed by many to be Dickens' greatest work.

Publisher:

Categories: Fiction
Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but-I hope-into a better shape.' -Estella, Great Expectations Charles Dickens (1812-1870) an English novelist, is generally considered the greatest of the Victorian era. Dickens worked as a journalist in political newspapers, making close observations about society in the churn of Industrialization. His work reflects his belief that society's blinding greed for money and its neglect of the lower classes are its major flaws. Through his books, he exhorts virtues of a loving heart and the pleasures of home in a flawed, cruelly indifferent world. The Definitive Charles Dickens includes one of his famous novels, Great Expectations; a play, Is She His Wife; a novella, Master Humphrey's Clock; a short story, The Trial for Murder; and his letters to his friends and family, which allow readers a glimpse of Dickens as a person and how he led his life.

Mugby Junction includes the famous ghost story "The Signal-Man" concerning a spectre seen beside a tunnel entrance. The signal-man of the title tells the narrator of a ghost that has been haunting him. Each spectral appearance precedes, and is a harbinger of, a tragic event on the railway on which the signalman works. The signalman's work is at a signalbox in a deep cutting near a tunnel entrance on a lonely stretch of the line, and he controls the movements of passing trains. When there is danger, his fellow signalmen alert him via telegraph and alarms. Three times, he receives phantom warnings of danger when his bell rings in a fashion that only he can hear. Each warning is followed by the appearance of the spectre, and then by a terrible accident.

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Un Plaisant
 by Charles Baudelaire

C'était l'explosion du nouvel an : chaos de boue et de neige, traversé
de mille carrosses, étincelant de joujoux et de bonbons, grouillant de
cupidités et de désespoirs, délire officiel d'une grande ville fait
pour troubler le cerveau du solitaire le plus fort.

Au milieu de ce tohu-bohu et de ce vacarme, un âne trottait vivement,
harcelé par un malotru armé d'un fouet.
