9781517552923: Sketches by Boz

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 published as a book in 1836, with illustrations by George Cruikshank. 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. The sketches were originally published in various newspapers and other periodicals between 1833 and 1836, then issued in instalments under their current title from 1837 to 1839. 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: ”Who the dickens ‘Boz’ could be Puzzled many a learned elf, Till time unveiled the mystery, And ‘Boz’ appeared as Dickens’s self.” 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,” became ”Boses”, which in turn was shortened to ”Boz”. The name remained coupled with ”inimitable” until ”Boz” eventually disappeared and Dickens became known as, simply, ”The Inimitable”.

From the Back Cover :

Sketches by Boz collected a rich and strange mixture of reportage, observation, fancy and fiction centred on the metropolis. It was Dickens's first book, published when he was twenty-four, and in it we find him walking the London streets, in theatres, pawnshops, lawcourts, prisons, along the Thames and on the omnibus, missing nothing, recording and transforming urban and suburban life into new terrain for literature. 'The first sprightly runnings of his genius are undoubtedly here, ' wrote Dickens's friend and biographer John Forster. Sketches is a remarkable achievement, and looks towards Dickens's giant novels in its profusion of characters, its glimpses of surreal modernity and its limitless fund of pathos and comic invention.
