PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Violent Effigy: A Study Of Dickens' Imagination An exploration of the strange poetry of Dickens imagination by leading academic and critic John Carey Setting aside the usual interpretations of Dickens work i The Violent Effigy i delves into the wonderful terrible fantasy world it inhabited It shows Dickens torn between the appeal of violence and a fanatical orderliness he was attracted by characters who commit murder or burst into flame or want to eat one another but also required people soaped and regimented The children he created were either the pious gnomes beloved of Victorian readers or callous sharp nosed children who pick out adults by the odd personal atmospheres they carry around Among his females are mythic women whose insidious miniature weapons needles scissors threaten the dominant male He created a shadow land between life and death peopled by effigies walking coffins waxworks stuffed creatures and disturbingly animated corpses John Carey skilfully shows how Dickens demolished Victorian shams while keeping at bay the terrors of his fantasy He celebrates above all Dickens peculiar genius for renewing the world by the curious lights he saw in it
