Who would have thought there was a comprehensive website with answers to everything you'd ever want to know about Victorian literature. I wonder what Ms. Havisham would think of all this? I'd recommend online dating for her.
The Dickens section of Victorianweb.org has information regarding Dickens' life, works, economic contexts (I didn't even know what economic contexts meant until I clicked on it), political history, social history, gender matters (I told you they had everything), genre and mode, literary relations, visual arts, science, themes, characterization, imagery, narrative, and related web sources. Most sites would brag about having that many sections. Not Victorianweb.org. Each of the above sections has 10-20 additional subsections.
Skeptical? I'm sure you've been to literature websites with questionable credentials in the past. Victorianweb, however, supplies a bibliography. Rest assured when you or your students use Victorianweb.org for your Charles Dickens lesson plans, you're getting reliable information.
The only downside to the site is it's geared to a more scholarly audience than perhaps exists in your classroom. In addition, some of the links are outdated.
