Founded in 1970, the centennial anniversary of Dickens's death, Dickens Studies Annual: Essays on Victorian Fiction publishes articles exploring the wide range of Dickens's interests and talents. The journal includes essays on other mid- and late-nineteenth century novelists and on the history and aesthetics of the period's fiction. Each volume also contains a solicited review article examining much of a prior year’s scholarship on Dickens. Periodically, Dickens Studies Annual publishes solicited surveys of studies of other Victorian authors. The journal is intended to be of interest to both students and scholars at various stages of their careers.
