Household Words Volume I (available September 2012)
Conducted by Charles Dickens
Edited by Ben Winyard, Hazel Mackenzie and John Drew

Household Words was a weekly magazine “conducted” by Charles Dickens in the 1850s. 
The famous writer was its
publisher, editor, and––along with a large and diverse group
of contemporaneous
writers and poets such as Elizabeth Gaskell, Wilkie Collins, G.A.
Sala and Robert Lytton––its major contributor. 
Like so many of his novels, it championed
social reform and focused
on the hardships of the poor. Dickens was already well
practised in the
craft of writing in serialized form. This popular format made the novels in
particular cheap, accessible, and with their regular cliff-hangers,
eagerly anticipated by a
burgeoning readership.
The magazine became
phenomenally popular.
Here for the first time is a complete facsimile edition with works by and index to all the
contributors with introductions to each volume by a dedicated editorial team
£15.99 Paperback
ISBN 9780956395276
