'Speaking of Them as a Body'

Dickens, Slavery and Martin Chuzzlewit

Sean Purchase

Dickens was an abolitionist throughout his career. In his non-fictional writings, his outbursts on slavery are fairly unequivocal, and he is given to straightforward pleas in his letters: 'But I want to help the wretched Slave.' His relationship to slavery was, however, more complex than such remonstrations suggest.
