Sketches By Boz Pdf
Sketches by “Boz,” Illustrative of Every-day Life and Every-day People (commonly known as Sketches by Boz) is a collection of short pieces Charles Dickens originally published in various newspapers and other periodicals between 1833 and 1836. They were re-issued in book form, under their current title, in February and August 1836, with illustrations by George Cruikshank. The first complete one-volume edition appeared in 1839. The 56 sketches concern London scenes and people, and the whole work is divided into four sections: “Our Parish”, “Scenes”, “Characters” and “Tales”. The material in the first three sections consists of non-narrative pen-portraits, but the last section comprises fictional stories.
Sketches By Boz Summary
The sketch “Mr. Minns and his Cousin” (originally titled “A Dinner at Poplar Walk”), was the first work of fiction Dickens ever published. It appeared in The Monthly Magazine in December 1833. Although Dickens continued to place pieces in that magazine, none of them bore a signature until August 1834, when “The Boarding House” appeared under the strange pen-name “Boz”. A verse in Bentley’s Miscellany for March 1837 recalled the public’s perplexity about this pseudonym: Dickens took the pseudonym from a nickname he had given his younger brother Augustus, whom he called “Moses” after a character in Oliver Goldsmith’s The Vicar of Wakefield. This, “being facetiously pronounced through the nose.”
