This collection of essays shows Dickens as one of the greatest visionaries of the city in all its variety and cruelty. Denemelerinde de yine romanlarından alışkın olduğumuz o mistik, karamsar, gotik-viktoryen atmosferle düşkünlerevi, ölüm, hastalıklar, dolandırıcılar gibi başlıca konuları işliyor: Londra’nın kirli içyüzü gibi.

The stories stand alone by themselves and are indicative of a great and creative imagination based on real life events. Billingsgate now a hospitality and events venue can hardly be remembered for it world’s largest fish market and great brewery. Respecto a este interesante librito de Dickens, que en realidad son extractos de sus escritos "Un viajante, y no de comercio" y "Palabras de Hogar", el gran novelista inglés mata su insomnio sumergiéndose en los suburbios londinense, mezclándose con la gente más pobre de Inglaterra y a medias entre las entrevistas de cierto estilo periodístico con la narración de las vivencias, sufrimientos y penas que le cuentan, va relatando todo sobre la dura vida de los indigentes londinenses.

It’s sad that there are so many preconceived ideas about YA novels, ideas that show those who speak about them, very often haven’t read any.

Charles Dickens describes in Night Walks his time as an insomniac, when he decided to cure himself by walking through London in the small hours, and discovered homelessness, drunkenness and vice on the streets.

Contrary to his wish to be buried at Rochester Cathedral "in an inexpensive, unostentatious, and strictly private manner," he was laid to rest in the Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey.

Leer lo que la gente le cuenta al escritor o cuando ve las condiciones en la que los niños pobres están muriendo de hambre le estrujan a uno el corazón. Following with my common habit of assigning to each of my favorite authors an adjective, defining, in a sense, the emotion or sensation that arises deep in my breast upon reading his or her work, I cannot find a better description to ascribe Dickens with but by announcing that his work is 'delicious', and if I were to be as vivid as is possible with describing my prevalent feeling I experienced while reading this book, it would be that I felt I was softly sinking, or rather drowning, in a sea of letters, encompassing me with an overwhelming feeling of jubilation and euphoria.
