Multicultural Writers from Antiquity to 1945: A Bio-Bibliographical Sourcebook

By Alba Amoia; Bettina L.Knapp | Go to book overview

(1984) revisits the antagonism between Dickens and the Americans as recorded in the press. Sylvère Monod (1979) collects papers presented at the 1978 Colloque International de Boulogne that examine such topics as Dickens's experiences in Boulogne and Paris, his depiction of “French Wickedness, and his treatment of French history in A Tale of Two Cities and of French characters in the other novels. Anny Sadrin (1999) has edited papers from the 1996 Dickens Project conference in Burgundy, where scholars from fourteen countries presented fifty papers on such matters as the difficulties in translating Dickens, his depiction of the colonial possessions, responses to Dickens in African and other cultures with former colonial connections to England, the American controversy, points of contact and difference between the English and Italian cultures in Dickens's works, and Dickens's explorations of rejection and acceptance of the “other” or “alien” in a variety of cultural forms.
