Burgan, Indiana- Albert D. Hutter, UCLA- Robert E. Lougy, Pennsylvania State- David D. Marcus, University of Illinois at Chi­cago Circle- Robert M. McCarron, Simon Fraser University- William J. Palmer, Purdue- Frank Edmund Smith, William Rainey Harper College- Randolph Splitter, California Institute of Technology- and Deborah A. Thomas, Fairleigh Dickinson.The ten contributions range from precise studies of themes, symbols, and motifs to new readings of Dickens’ work, autobiographical reconstruc­tions, and textual studies.One of the purposes of the series is to afford opportunity for publishing longer-than-article-length works, and though not all of the present essays are of such length, they all show the diver­sity as well as the range of the best of current Dickens scholarship.Taken together, the contributions widen the dimensions of Dickens schol­arship and thus broaden our under­standing of the man and his work. The essays, of permanent value, will be of interest to general readers as well as students and specialists.
