“Judging by the liveliness in this collection of essays and bibliographies, the Victorians still fascinate.”
Reference and Research Book News on volume 38

“Much like traversing the ‘delightful irregular’ interior spaces of the architectural Bleak House, ‘where you come upon more rooms when you think you have seen all there are’ (ch. 6), readers...will find a pleasing variety of critical corridors and scholarly stairways to explore.”
—Natalie Bell Cole in Dickens Quarterly on volume 32

Founded in 1970, the centennial anniversary of Dickens's death, DSA has been published since 1980
by AMS Press in cooperation with the Ph.D. program in English of the City University of New York and in association with the Graduate Center, CUNY and Queens College, CUNY. Besides presenting articles exploring the wide range of Dickens's interests and talents, DSA also includes essays on other mid- and late- nineteenth-century authors and on the history and aesthetics of the period's fiction. In addition, each volume contains a substantial review article examining a prior year's scholarship on Dickens, and DSA occasionally publishes surveys of work on other Victorian writers, as well as review essays considering specialized studies of subjects in Victorian fiction. The editors seek to offer essays of "the most diverse kinds," those employing innovative as well as traditional approaches.
