"Since its first publication thirty-five years ago, the Norton Critical Edition of Charles Dickens' Hard Times has been enthusiastically received as both a notable work of Dickens scholarship and a reliable text for the classroom.

In addition, the annotations to the novel have been revised and expanded."

Bleak house by Charles Dickens( Book )

9 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bleak House, Dickens's most daring experiment in the narration of a complex plot, challenges the reader to make connections - between the fashionable and the outcast, the beautiful and the ugly, the powerful and the victims. Nowhere in Dickens's later novels is his attack on an uncaring society more imaginatively embodied, but nowhere either is the mixture of comedy and angry satire more deftly managed. Bleak House defies a single description. It is a mystery story, in which Esther Summerson discovers the truth about her birth and her unknown mother's tragic life. It is a murder story, which comes to a climax in a thrilling chase, led by one of the earliest detectives in English fiction, Inspector Bucket. And it is a fable about redemption, in which a bleak house is transformed by the resilience of human love

Great expectations by Charles Dickens( Book )

21 editions published between 1959 and 2015 in French and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman de l'enfance et de l'adolescence, histoire d'une éducation, aventure psychologique et morale de portée universelle, Les Grandes Espérances, avant-dernière œuvre achevée de Dickens, surprend par sa fraîcheur, le renouvellement constant de l'invention, le comique. Le héros-narrateur, Pip, passe de l'enfance dans un village, où il est apprenti-forgeron, à une adolescence fastueuse et dissipée à Londres. Les moments pathétiques alternent avec les instants cocasses. L'histoire du forçat enrichi et condamné à mort est digne de Victor Hugo. La présence des rêves, ou de certaines scènes fantastiques, comme la vue soudaine des gibets à l'entrée de la ville, donne au roman sa dimension poétique. Et il y a quelque chose d'étonnamment moderne dans les deux fins, l'une malheureuse, l'autre heureuse, du roman, au moment où l'homme, Pip, et la femme, Estella, ont été mûris et châtiés par les épreuves.
