“As Hollington reveals in his introduction, this monumental work (part of Bloomsbury's 'Reception of British and Irish Authors in Europe' series) grew out of Ada Nisbet's uncompleted 'International Guide to the Study of Dickens,' which was itself an outgrowth of her essay in Victorian Fiction: A Guide to Research, ed. By Lionel Stevenson (CH, Jan'65). The 40 essays - on translation, cricital commentary, literary influence, and adaptations - provide fascinating reading as the contributors (each an expert in the field) trace the ups and downs of the novelists reputation, reflecting the changing tastes in literature. The geographic areas included are Germany, Russia, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the Slavonic countries, the Baltic, the Balkans, and Hungary. There is also a chapter on film and television. A time line shows the dates of first translations of works into various languages. A 79-page bibliography provides a wealth of sources for further research. Though even the casual student is aware of Dickens's taking the English-speaking world by storm, this valuable study gives good insight into his international popularity and brings the reader to realize that Dickens was and is a writer of global significance. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.” ―J.D. Vann, University of North Texas, CHOICE
“...superb, and much needed, collection of essays.” ―Nirshan Perera, Dickens Quarterly
