Supplements to Introduction to “The Old Curiosity Shop” and “Barnaby Rudge”

It occurred to me that I had failed to post Peter Ackroyd’s chapter on “The Old Curiosity Shop” before we began reading it. So here it is, along with his chapter on “Barnaby Rudge”.


I think we can read the chapter on “Barnaby” with no spoiler alert – Ackroyd doesn’t give too much away as he sets the scene for both the novel and the writing of the novel.

  1. Many, many thanks, Chris, for making these splendid perspectives by Ackroyd available to us.

    I have just printed them off, and will pour over them.
