Editorial Reviews


"Grossman is a rigorous and provocative reader of Dickens, and his interventions in Charles Dickens's Networks is most welcome; the volume connects not only Dickens but narrative conceived more broadly to a deeply compelling and warping effect in spatiotemporal perspective that occurred throughout the nineteenth century. ... Grossman's book is indeed provocative and, in its deep rigor, that it will stand the test of time and space." --Victorian Studies

"This carefully documented study will be of interest not only to students of Dickens but also to anyone interested in Victorian history and culture. ... Recommended." --J.D Vann, Choice

"The great pleasure of this book lies in its nuanced, attentive close readings. ... Like the systems that it depicts, the volume is beautifully constructed in terms of the cumulative argument forged by its individual chapters. Charles Dickens's Networks presents a nation transformed by a rapidly expanding transport system; Grossman's ambitious analyses of narrative form promise a similarly transformative effect on Dickens criticism. --Claire Wood, The Review of English Studies

"Written with considerable esprit, Charles Dickens's Networks is a fascinating and provocative study of the connections between social history, narrative theory, and Dickens's fictional construction of the ways in which Victorian experience was being remade by the new systems of transport ... [it] is a major contribution and one that will enrich our thinking about transport, systems, and the increasingly networked reality of nineteenth-century life that the novels represent and interrogate. --Iain Crawford, Dickens Quarterly

"Grossman's close engagement with the texture of each work is a constant delight." --Review 19

"[I]lluminating, and invigorating." --Judith Flanders, Times Literary Supplement

"Grossman gathers his material convincingly. At every stop along the line we're offered something both fresh and useful for the journey. ... In the 200th anniversary year of his birth, Grossman's book is a stimulating contribution to the Dickens Roadshow." --Gee Williams, Review 31
