Excerpt from The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, Vol. 2 of 2 And now the bugle plays a lively air as the coach rattles through the ill-paved streets of a country town; and the coachman, undoing the buckle which keeps his ribands together, prepares to throw them off the moment he Stops. Mr. Pick wick emerges from his coat collar, and looks about him with great curiosity; perceiving which the coachman informs Mr. Pickwick of the name of the town, and tells him it was market day yesterday, both of which pieces of information Mr. Pickwick retails to his fellow-passengers; whereupon they emerge from their coat collars too, and look about them also. Mr. Winkle, who sits at the extreme edge, with one leg dangling in the air, is nearly precipitated into the street, as the coach twists round the sharp corner by the cheese-monger's Shop, and turns into the market-place; and before Mr. Snodgrass, who sits next to him, has recovered from his alarm, they pull up at the inn-yard, where the fresh horses, with cloths on, are already waiting. The coachman throws down the reins and gets down himself, and the other outside passengers drop down also, except those who have no great confidence in their ability to get up again, and they remain where they are, and stamp their feet against the coach to warm them - looking with longing eyes and red noses at the bright fire in the inn bar, and the sprigs of holly with red berries which ornament the window.

Mr. W'inkle had not yet sufficiently recoo vered the recollection of his evidence at the trial, to make any observation on any subject, so Mr. Pickwick paused in vain.

Presents Dickens's classic tale about the adventurous members of the Pickwick Club's Corresponding Society
On the Clarendon Dickens: "The Oxford University Press continues its outstanding contribution to Dickens scholarship....This is a far more sophisticated scholarly edition of Dickens than has ever been attempted."--Times Literary Supplement. The Pickwick Papers, seventh novel in The Clarendon Dickens, joins the heralded series on the 150th anniversary of its first publication. Originally planned as a monthly column, the "papers" of the Pickwick Club quickly outgrew their origins to become a brilliantly comic novel whose hilarity did not preclude penetrating satire on the state of pre-Victorian London. James Kinsley's introduction charts the novel's development and reveals new sources and influences on the work.
Vols. for 1898-1968 include a directory of publishers.
This book critically examines the long established tradition of adapting classic novels to film or TV screen, encompassing novelists from Jane Austen to Michael Ondaatje. The early cinema ransacked literature for stories suitable for retelling in moving pictures, and as the art of the cinema matured, and cinematography, music, special effects and sound were improved, the art of dramatization began to produce high quality versions of respected novels. The authors in this book analyze a wide variety of literary dramatizations.
1907. Dickens, English novelist, is considered by many to be the greatest of his country. His works were known to indict society's mistreatment and abuse of the poor, especially children. His first novel, The Pickwick Papers, follows the adventures of the Pickwick Club as they involve themselves in comic mishaps and misunderstandings. The introduction of Sam Weller, his greatest comic character, forever established Dickens' fame and popularity. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
