Abstract

Interest in supernatural phenomena was high during Charles Dickens' lifetime. He had always loved a good ghost story himself, particularly at Christmas time, and was open-minded, willing to accept, and indeed put to the test, the existence of spirits. His natural inclinations toward drama and the macabre made him a brilliant teller of ghost tales, and in the twenty stories presented here, which include his celebrated A Christmas Carol, the full range of his gothic talents can be seen. Chilling as some of these stories are, Dickens has managed to inject characteristically grotesque comedy as he writeof revenge, insanity, pre-cognition and dream visions, he indulges also in some debunking of contemporary credulity.

Abstract

Roman social, il est situé dans la ville fictive de Coketown (image de Manchester, le grand centre textile, et de Preston où Dickens a séjourné durant la grève de janvier 1854) et montre les difficultés d'adaptation des deux classes sociales (la bourgeoisie d'affaire et les ouvriers) à la nouvelle économie issue de la révolution industrielle. L'auteur y dépeint avec un réalisme dénonciateur une classe ouvrière asservie, misérable et moutonnière, abrutie par le travail répétitif, livrée aux démagogues professionnels, que domine une bourgeoisie pragmatique et utilitariste, avide de profits et de pouvoir, persuadée de la nature quasi divine de ses droits et forte de la bonne conscience qu'elle puise dans les lois de l'économie de marché, mais dont il analyse les alibis et présente les travers avec une ironie mordante. Thomas Gradgrind is an eminently practical man who believes in facts and statistics and has brought up his two children, Louisa and Tom, accordingly, thoroughly suppressing the imaginative sides of their nature. They are raised in ignorance of love and affection, and the consequences are devastating. No other work of Dickens presents so harsh an indictment against the attitude of life he associated with Utilitarianism. With savage bitterness Dickens exposes the devilish industries and institutions that exploited the bodies and minds of the vulnerable labour class.
