This study draws on unfamiliar material in Dickens' periodicals, travel-books, and letters, and the memoirs of his friends, as well as on the novels, shows how his "shaping spirit of imagination" worked upon the "originals" of Inspector Bucket, Alderman Cute, the magistrate and model prisoners in 'David Copperfield,' and many other characters and episodes. Prisons and murder are the main topics; other include the police, the courts, and hanging
Dickens : the critical heritage by Philip Collins( Book )

46 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects. The Collected Critical Heritage set will be available as a set of 68 volumes and the series will also be available in mini sets selected by period (in slipcase boxes) and as individual volumes
