The archetypal Victorian melodrama, as heartfelt and moving today as when it was first published, Charles Dickenss The Old Curiosity Shop is edited with notes and an introduction by Norman Page in Penguin Classics. Little Nell Trent lives in the quiet gloom of the old curiosity shop with her ailing grandfather, for whom she cares with selfless devotion. But when they are u The archetypal Victorian melodrama, as heartfelt and moving today as when it was first published, Charles Dickenss The Old Curiosity Shop is edited with notes and an introduction by Norman Page in Penguin Classics. Little Nell Trent lives in the quiet gloom of the old curiosity shop with her ailing grandfather, for whom she cares with selfless devotion. But when they are unable to pay their debts to the stunted, lecherous and demonic money-lender Daniel Quilp, the shop is seized and they are forced to flee, thrown into a shadowy world in which there seems to be no safe haven. Dickenss portrayal of the innocent, tragic Nell made The Old Curiosity Shop an instant bestseller that captured the hearts of the nation, even as it was criticised for its sentimentality by figures such as Oscar Wilde. Yet alongside the storys pathos are some of Dickenss greatest comic and grotesque creations: the neer-do-well Dick Swiveller, the mannish lawyer Sally Brass, the half-starved Marchioness and the lustful, loathsome Quilp himself. This edition, based on the original text of 1841, contains an introduction by Norman Page discussing the various contrasting themes of the novel and its roots in Dickenss own personal tragedy, with prefaces to the 1841 and 1848 editions, a chronology, notes and original illustrations produced for the serial version. 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 The Old Curiosity Shop, you might like Dickenss Hard Times , also available in Penguin Classics.
