Dickens and Shakespeare

For Dickens Shakespeare was the supreme literary artist, ‘that great master who knew everything’, and he delighted in the fact that so little was known about Shakespeare’s life so that it remains ‘a fine mystery’ to us. Dickens own work is deeply influenced by Shakespeare and saturated with Shakespearian references and allusions some of which will be explored in this lecture from Professor Michael Slater.
