About this deal

La structure des phrases est complexe, et lourde, le tout ne donnant pas envie de s’y remettre le we ou après une journée de travail ! Dickens was always interested in social reform and his walks tend to take him to the seedier parts of the capital. Any one familiar with Dickens' later novels can see the ideas here which are developed in his later work.

Son 25 libros aunque yo sólo poseo tres: "El gran inquisidor" de Fiódor Dostoievski, "Días de lectura" de Marcel Proust y este de Dickens. Not only because it was a Newbery Medal winner but because it has become one of the great MG classics and has even been made into a movie. Only very few people are out and about and he cherishes what little contact he has, with the man on the toll bridge for example.His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Charles Dickens describes in Night Walks his time as an insomniac, when he decided to cure himself by walking through London in the small hours, and discovered homelessness, drunkenness and vice on the streets. His last words were: "On the ground", in response to his sister-in-law Georgina's request that he lie down. The sheer joy that accompanies reading anything by the pen of Dickens is one that must not be missed by a single soul with complete disregard to their affiliation to an age group.

Dickens describes his nightly London so well, creates such an uncanny atmosphere, touches on so many themes like homelessness, social injustice, poverty, mental health, in a mere 15 pages.

The wild moon and clouds were as restless as an evil conscience in a tumbled bed, and the very shadow of the immensity of London seemed to lie oppressively upon the river. This Penguin Great Ideas edition is a must-read for those interested in Dickens or the London he knew.He also talks about the law and civility which was at the heart of Victorian era’s Martin’s Church Highly gates like most building in the centre was resting quietly in the corner of Trafalgar Square.

Dröjer mig kvar vid meningen "Are not the sane and insane equal at night as the sane lie a dreaming? Respecto a este interesante librito de Dickens, que en realidad son extractos de sus escritos "Un viajante, y no de comercio" y "Palabras de Hogar", el gran novelista inglés mata su insomnio sumergiéndose en los suburbios londinense, mezclándose con la gente más pobre de Inglaterra y a medias entre las entrevistas de cierto estilo periodístico con la narración de las vivencias, sufrimientos y penas que le cuentan, va relatando todo sobre la dura vida de los indigentes londinenses. Are not all of us outside this hospital, who dream, more or less in the condition of those inside it, every night of our lives?I must say that it is immensely unfortunate that I am only coming to become acquainted with Charles Dickens at this current time and after having read over 90 books throughout my lifetime. You would also find fast food takeaways that were open till late and foxes rummaging through people’s bin. The author of these articles, is a man, who anyone upon reading his work, would agree is one everyone wishes was in actuality acquainted with. For me, it is a reflection of the past in the present, when I read "insufficient food and unwholesome living are the main causes of disease among these small patients. In conclusion, it was a lot of ground to cover but a recommended walk to getting a sense of the wide variety London has to offer.
