This is an intelligent, well-researched and meticulously argued investigation of parallels in outlook between Dickens and Benjamin. Avoiding obvious pitfalls of such a project, Piggott is scrupulous in establishing her focus: not on any supposed influence of the one on the other, nor on the development of either writer's ideas, but rather on the similarities and differences between the two writers' vision of modernity, in particular as seen in their writings on the city. Alert to the fact that the two writers lived and wrote in different centuries, and to the fact that their primary response was to different cities, she nevertheless makes a convincing case for the fundamental congruence of their core ideas'. Paul Schlicke, University of Aberdeen, general editor of the Oxford Companion to Charles Dickens
