    This collection of letters and excerpts from Mr. Dickens' novels, edited by Mr. Woollcott, shows us how infatuated the author was with the theater. His correspondences with Macready and Forster are brimming with reviews (both good and bad) of plays that the author attended. Mr. Woollcott also included theater-related excerpts from David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and, of course, Nicholas Nickleby. A delight for lovers of Dickens and of the stage!
