Dickens’s London often acts as a complex symbol, composed of numerous sub-symbols, such as crowd, river, railway networks and police systems. This book is particularly interested in how Dickens’s treatment of the city allows him to re-examine traditional Christian discourses on the issues of revelation, renunciation and regeneration.
