Originally published as a serial in “Master Humphrey’s Clock” between 1840–1841, Dickens historical novel “Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of Eighty” is mainly set during the Gordon Riots of 1780, several days of rioting in Great Britain sparked by anti-Catholic sentiment. Highly recommended for fans of historical fiction and the much-loved work of Charles Dickens. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from “Appreciations and Criticisms of the Works of Charles Dickens” by G. K. Chesterton.
Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic famous for having created some of the world’s most well-known fictional characters. His works became unprecedentedly popular during his life, and today he is commonly regarded as the greatest Victorian-era novelist. Although perhaps better known for such works as “Great Expectations” or “A Christmas Carol”, Dickens first gained success with the 1836 serial publication of “The Pickwick Papers”, which turned him almost overnight into an international literary celebrity thanks to his humour, satire, and astute observations concerning society and character.
