Dickens in America

This is a terrific webpage found by my friend and colleague, the appropriately names Director of Excellence, Maria Trafford.

In it the re are links for contextual studies relating to Dickens’ tour of the States. If you are studying Huck Finn for OCR it is great background – Dickens’ feelings about steamboat travel and Twain’s opinion on Dickens’ lectures will all develop awareness of the contexts around the American Literature course.
