The Dickens Nobody Knows
As great as his literary reputation remains today, Charles Dickens suffers from such an incomplete portrait in the minds of his readers. Professor Engel rescues him by enthusiastically tracing his astonishing life and writing career. Using biography, analysis, and large doses of humor, Dr. Engel reveals an author far more fascinating than the immortal characters he created in his novels.
Dr. Engel has written ten books published in England, Japan, Turkey, and the United States. His mini-lecture series on Charles Dickens ran on PBS television stations around the country. His articles have appeared in numerous newspapers and national magazines including Newsweek. He has lectured throughout the United States and on all the continents including Antarctica. Four plays which he has written have been produced during the last ten years. In 2009, he was inducted into the Royal Society of Arts in England for his academic work and service in promoting Charles Dickens.
