    1 thought on “Londoner Skizzen (Sketches by Boz)

    1. Not a novel, but as the title would suggest, a collection of passages or sketches by Charles Dickens under the pseudonym of Boz written between 1833 36 and originally published as individual pieces in newspapers periodicals before being published collectively in one volume.This collection consists of 56 separate sketches and is divided into four sections namely Our Parish, Scenes, Characters and Tales Each one of which providing a descriptive piece about that particular character or scene etc.Wh [...]

    2. postilla italiana, in fondo Early Dickens, already Dickens in pieces It would require the pencil of Hogarth to illustrate our feeble pen is inadequate to describe The first book of Dickens is not a novel nor a collection of short stories apart from some Tales in the fourth part but a series of small portraits of people, places and situations of the early 19th century London, halfway between journalism and essay the great tradition of 18th century essay And large drinking of brandy and water To r [...]

    3. Excellent short stories by Charles Dickens written before he was known as Dickens and written under his alias as Boz Remarkably, the writing style and quality is almost as good in these short stories as it is in his popular novels I simply love Dickens and have finally come down to reading his last novel and the reading of this book is my effort to prolong the conclusion of reading all his works aside from some, or less, obscure short story titles The best overall description I can give to Dic [...]

    4. My favorite quotation from the collection, because it withstands the test of time Perhaps the cast of our political pantomime never was richer than at this day We are particularly strong in clowns This is a collection of Dickens earliest writing in the form of short sketches and tales Written in the 1830s, they focus on early 19th century London and include depictions of both the impoverished and the difficulties they face and the newly prosperous middle class just beginning to take shape Also i [...]

    5. I enjoyed these greatly, and they are ridiculously detailed descriptions of life and the city in a period we now suffer immense nostalgia for so it s nice to hear a humorous and highly critical counterpoint to the twee recreations of Victorian glory In terms of the uselessness of politicians and the practices of parents and couples and aristocrats, indeed, surprisingly little has changed I couldn t help feel though, that society has improved for the better now that a woman s options have expande [...]

    6. First literary stepsI have always regarded the Sketches as an apprentice work, and thinking so never read it Now I have sampled a proportion of the book my opinion has not changed But it is still a remarkable achievement for a young writer It s structure is odd, but all the elements of the nature Dickens are there multifarious characters, knowledge of London, humour, a jaundiced view of lawyers and some parts which are worthy of the mature author Well worth dipping into even if only for social h [...]

    7. Sketches by Boz Illustrative of Every day Life and Every day People was a collection of some of Dickens earliest work Many of these pieces were published in newspapers and magazines before being published in book form in 1836 There were two series, the first being a two volume set in February of 1836, and the second as a single volume in December of 1836 Many of the earliest sketches were published without an author indicated, until he started using Boz as his pseudonym This type of writing serv [...]

    8. I wrote this review for in early 2002, shortly after reading Sketches by Boz for the first time Sketches by Boz Penguin Classics edition In bookstores and libraries, literary classics are a dime a dozen There are so many different editions available of each that the problem becomes one not of finding a good read but of selecting the edition of it that s right for you Charles Dickens is perhaps the most popular of the past masters All his books are enormously entertaining, whether he s writing a [...]

    9. Although not a novel, a collection of short pieces as the blurb says Sketches by Boz does have a certain continuous narrative The first section contains a collection of vignettes entitled Our Parish, and describes certain personages inhabiting the parishes of the London of the late Georgian early Victorian period The second part is entitled Scenes and concentrates on individual scenes, for instance, The Streets morning, The Streets night, The River, etc Part Three is entitled, Characters, and [...]

    10. Dickens has such a laudable knack for describing people and places as well as meditating so lucidly on society and culture I ve only read chunks of this book Some of my thoughts belowIn Sketches by Boz, the meditations are intensified by the subtlety of storytelling Also, Dickens suggests in these excerpts that the speculations afforded by the streets of London are identifiable by everyone His meditations, although providing insightful and entertaining commentary on those less fortunate, assume [...]

    11. SKETCHES BY BOZ 1836 Charles Dickens This was the first collection of Dickens published in book form The pieces in it had been serialized for a couple of years before finally being collected The pieces are divided into three major sections 1 Our Parish portraits of the occupants of a typical parish in England the portraits not necessarily flattering 2 Scenes descriptions of places and landmarks in and around London, and 3 Tales short stories on a variety of subjects The book, as well as the prev [...]

    12. I m betting these are mostly consulted for historical purposes, rather than read for pleasure but if Dickens had never written anything else, the editors of the Norton Anthology of English Literature would probably have included one of these sketches he d be important enough to be remembered on the strength of these alone.My favorite is Meditations in Monmouth Street, in which he looks at the display windows of used clothing stores and creates characters to go with the clothes There was one pair [...]

    13. I understand this was one of the very first books Charles Dickens ever published Nevertheless, it is already Dickens at his best I was very much impressed with his attention to descriptive detail and his capacity of observation, and with his sense of humour The sketches provide an excellent view of life in London in the middle of the 19th century and range from the very serious to the very funny For Dickens fans and for those who have never read any of his work, I can highly recommend this colle [...]

    14. I have to admit I only read this because I want to read all of Dickens books, but I actually really enjoyed it Not so well known now, but this is actually the book that made him famous Some of the stories are better than others, but at its best the quality of writing is top class.

    15. I liked it better than I thought I would Dickens style is already there, with a few missteps If you are interested in everyday life in 1836 London, this is it.

    17. Of course, they don t write em like this any.Hooray for Charles Dickens 1812 1870 I m talking about Sketches by Boz, his first book published in 1836.I m talking not only about the obvious point Dickens has been dead these many years , but also about my understanding of the palpably inimitable Dickensian style.Dickens does not fail to offer, time after time after time, character portraits that spring to life as you turn the pages he sketches his characters with disinterested honesty, stout heart [...]

    18. This is a highly varied collection of short for Dickens anyway stories and mostly consist of his early works As such, it is great at giving windows into the culture of the time, but should be read as a short story collection as there is little to nothing to connect all of the stories, and several of them particularly the Mudfog chapters are meant to be satirical What is really fascinating for the dedicated Dickens reader are the brief location and character sketches in the beginning of the colle [...]

    19. When Dickens is good, he s wonderful When he s not, it s an exercise in tedium These short pieces are a mixed bag the stories are always better than the sketches, which can be cloying in the extreme.

    20. Took me a while but I finally finished this book Thankfully, it s an easy book to allow one to do that, as it s made up of individual sketches I enjoyed most, even though it took me so long to complete.

    21. Sketches by Boz was Charles Dickens first book, although most of the pieces in it had been previously published in various periodicals This collection includes brief sketches, satirical stories, and a few heartbreakingly realistic portrayals of life among London s most desperate and downtrodden.The sketches are fascinating from a modern perspective for providing not only a literary snapshot of a particular place and group of people, but also a time that is now quite far removed from our own This [...]

    22. Warm, heartbreaking, funny Dickens is all here in its infancy but fully formed London in the 1830 s is sketched out here in almost its entirety.

    23. Review title Dickens sketches of life and LondonPart of the rating of what a classic I m assigning to Boz goes to its place in the canon Started before his famous novels, as newspaper columns that were his first published work, uncredited and unpaid at first, the sketches in original format, editing, rewriting, reordering, and republishing in volume format extended almost through Dickens entire career That they flashed so much talent so early he wasn t unpaid and uncredited for long is not so su [...]

    24. This is another great adventure in my year of Dickens In this collection appear sketches and stories from various publications during 1836 1839 He begins by introducing the reader to people and places in London, Everyday Life and Everyday People I loved his strategy of touring around the various places and describing the many people he sees as though he and the reader are in a group of individuals actually witnessing these experiences He goes from the parish beadle, to the schoolmaster, to ladie [...]

    25. Originally published on my blog here in May 2001.The young Charles Dickens became a published author anonymously when the first of the Sketches was printed he went on to write two volumes of them, some of which overlapped with the early parts of The Pickwick Papers The pieces all attempt to give a picture of life in London, which remained probably the most important theme in almost all of Dickens writing The central theme is elaborated in a surprisingly wide variety of ways, considering the inex [...]

    26. Developed out of Dickens short pieces for a London newspaper, these are masterful descriptive writings of the different locales of London, and caricatures of its varied inhabitants One can see how the novelist was, in a sense, germinating his skills with brief anecdotal thumbnail insights into the city against which the overwhelming majority of his novels would be set Of particular favorites are the descriptions of the miserly old gentleman whom nothing whatsoever could make feel good and the ef [...]

    27. I ve only read about 14 of the stories or so and for a class, no less , but the rest will have to wait until I have some free time That doesn t mean I wouldn t keep reading if I had the time, because Sketches by Boz is now vying with Oliver Twist for second place on my top books by Dickens list nothing can replace A Christmas Carol for first Written from a journalistic stance, Boz s sketches are reminiscent of early anthropological studies Sure, Dickens can be demeaning, condescending, and hype [...]

    28. I had read a number of these before but had never read Sketches by Boz in its entirety Dickens first book, published when he was twenty four and already on his third or fourth career, contains his earliest writings, ranging from semi fictional sketches to a series of tales that range from farce to melodramatic tragedy They contain much of what one would find throughout his career walking through the streets of London, middle class families, clerks, comedy, satire of pretension, tragedy, farce, a [...]
