Make a Gift to the Discovering Dickens Project

Discovering Dickens began in 2002 as a small project devoted to introducing the Stanford community to the fascination of serial reading, as well as to the more measured pace of large Victorian novels released over time. But Discovering Dickens didn’t stay small; by the end of the first year, the project had more than 7000 subscribers, 7 times what any of us had predicted.

In 2005, the serial reading of Hard Times again invites you to rediscover the more leisurely, and more engaged, virtues of Victorian serial publication. Each issue, both in paper copy and on the website, is accompanied by notes, as well as by contemporary maps and illustrations, that we hope will make the text more accessible and more immediate to the 21st-century reader. Your gift will help sustain this project, by defraying some of the costs of printing and mailing.
