Charles Dickens and America - Part II

2017 marks 150 years since Charles Dickens embarked on his second and final voyage to America.  In honour of this special occasion we are publishing a four part blog series written by Professor Michael Slater, charting the author’s two trips to the United States and Canada as well as mapping his changing views of North America and its people.
Solitary Prisoner

Dickens would go onto write about the plight of prisoners in 'American Notes.' This illustration ‘The Solitary Prisoner’ by Marcus Stone and engraved by E. Dalziel was published in the 1874 Illustrated Library Edition of the book. ([lib]1065, Charles Dickens Museum collection)
