A two-day interdisciplinary meeting was held at the British Academy in April on ‘The Evolution of Cultural Entities’.

The work of publishing the complete letters of Charles Dickens started under the general editorship of Humphry House, assisted by his wife Madeline House, in the 1950s. The first of 12 projected volumes appeared in 1965, and the final collection of letters covering the period 1867–1870 is on course for publication by 2001. The conclusion of the series will bring to completion a unique record not only of Charles Dickens the man, but of mid-Victorian society generally. Dr Graham Storey, General Editor of the Pilgrim Edition of the ‘Letters of Charles Dickens’, considers some extracts from the letters which illustrate the wide range of Dickens’s interests.
