Dickens and the Virtual City: Urban Perception and the Production of Social Space By Estelle Murail, Sara Thornton
English | PDF | 2017 | 302 Pages | ISBN : 3319350854 | 3.76 MB
This book explores the aesthetic practices used by Dickens to make the space which we have come to know as the Dickensian City. It concentrates on three very precise techniques for the production of social space (counter-mapping, overlaying and troping). The chapters show the scapes and writings which influenced him and the way he transformed them, packaged them and passed them on for future use.
