  • Charles Dickens by Michael Slater - Yale University Press
    his biography by dipping into Dickens writings aside from the novels John Carey Sunday Times Michael Slater s new Life has at its heart the ambition to see Dickens record steadily and whole It is twenty years since the last major biography so this is the first to draw on all of Dickens s surviving letters as well as Slater s own invaluable edition of his journalism John Bowen TLS This is a classic biography to last out a generation Iain Finlayson The Times Indispensable Slater assembles a million accumulated details minutely examining the genesis of each work insights abound He takes us compellingly through all the great shocks of Dickens s life but he doesn t dwell on them His quarry is the writing The novels are the tip of a vast iceberg and Slater introduces us to some miraculous pieces Dickens is an incomparable portrait of the writing life of Dickens Cumulatively it is profoundly moving chronicling the constant restless interaction between the life and work Simon Callow The Guardian There have been many lives of Dickens so what makes Slater s stand out First he has a matchless knowledge of all things Dickensian and second having edited four superbly informative volumes of Dickens s journalism he is ideally equipped to enrich his biography by dipping into the ocean of Dickens s writings aside from the novels this fine biography aligns life and works John Carey Sunday Times Culture A distinguished study the product of a lifetime s research What makes this biography fresh is its sensitivity to duality that drove Dickens s writing an authoritative account Dinah Birch The Independent Michael Slater is certainly something of an expert on his subject but despite his academic credentials this is no dry as dust exercise though it is scrupulously documented and includes much material that has only recently become available Only Peter Ackroyd s 1991 study equals this biography in delivering some impression of Dickens s kaleidoscopic life but the comparison falls short when it comes to the detail Reading Charles Dickens is rather like standing at the great man s shoulder as he juggles all the various aspects of his life Karl Dallas Morning Star One wonders at first what a new biographer has to bring Everything has been examined but Michael Slater s research is compendious and his judgments are clear eyed and his own It builds up to be a nuanced and interesting account of Dickens as a literary craftsman Sam Leith The Spectator The attention Mr Slater gives to Dickens s less familiar writings the short stories journalism and essays is one of the things that distinguish his excellent biography an authoritative and engaging biography The Economist No living person is a greater authority on the life and works of Charles Dickens than Michael Slater Claire Tomalin Michael Slater is the first biographer to have had unhampered access to the whole range of Dickens primary material in its final edited form Slater s will be
