Summary
#x91;Dickens and the Sentimental Tradition#x92; is a timely study of the #x91;sentimental#x92; in Dickens#x92;s novels, which places them in the context of the tradition of Fielding, Richardson, Sterne, Goldsmith, Sheridan and Lamb. This study re-evaluates Dickens#x92;s presentation of emotion #x96; first within the eighteenth-century tradition and then within the dissimilar nineteenth-century tradition #x96; as part of a complex literary heritage that enables him to critique nineteenth-century society. The book sheds light on the construction of feelings and of the #x91;good heart#x92;, ideas which resonate with current critical debates about literary #x91;affect#x92;. Sentimentalism, as the text demonstrates, is crucial to understanding fully the achievement of Dickens and his contemporaries
