The essays approach gender issues in Dickenss writing by focusing on a number of topics: his treatment of gender ideals and transgressions- the intersections and displacements among gender, class and race- the ties between gender and the body, and among gender, voice and language- his depiction of the homosocial and the homoerotic- and the relation between gender and the law.The essays provide an introduction to the most recent approaches to Dickenss fiction in addition to those now considered classic, draw on queer theory and also feature a variety of methodologies, ranging across feminist, historicist and psychoanalytic methods of interpretation.

The collection represents the best of previously published research by Dickenss scholars and illuminates for students and scholars alike the meaning of gender in such novels as The Pickwick Papers, Dombey and Son, and Our Mutual Friend.
