Charles Dickens:
Our Mutual Friend - new book

2012, ISBN: 9780140434972

ID: 144798473

Charles Dickens´s last complete novel, Our Mutual Friend is a glorious satire spanning all levels of Victorian society, edited with an introduction by Adrian Poole in Penguin Classics. Our Mutual Friend centres on an inheritance - Old Harmon´s profitable dust heaps - and its legatees, young John Harmon, presumed drowned when a body is pulled out of the River Thames, and kindly dustman Mr Boffin, to whom the fortune defaults. With brilliant satire, Dickens portrays a dark, macabre London, inhabited by such disparate characters as Gaffer Hexam, scavenging the river for corpses; enchanting, mercenary Bella Wilfer; the social-climbing Veneerings; and the unscrupulous street-trader Silas Wegg. The novel is richly symbolic in its vision of death and renewal in a city dominated by the fetid Thames, and the corrupting power of money. Our Mutual Friend uses text of the first volume edition of 1865 and includes original illustrations, a chronology and revised further reading. As Adrian Poole writes in his introduction to this new edition, ´In its vast scope and perilous ambitions it has much in common with Bleak House and Little Dorrit , but its manner is more stealthy, on edge, enigmatic.´ Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including Oliver Twist , Great Expectations , A Tale of Two Cities , David Copperfield and The Pickwick Papers , have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you enjoyed Our Mutual Friend , you might like Dickens´s The Mystery of Edwin Drood , also available in Penguin Classics. ´The great poet of the city. He was created by London´ Peter Ackroyd This takes a complex pattern of theme, symbol, comic exuberance, sharp social comment and telling detail as it takes a satirical look at wealth and its corrupting power, symbolized by the inheritance of a dust-heap and represented by the changing fortunes of Boffin, the golden dustman.
