Sample text

12 Dickens has a perspective on French events that others have had, but it is not one he is drawing wholly from contemporary historians, and it is one that encompasses reflection on parallel British institutions and practices and that emphasizes the link with the American Revolution. Indeed, if one wants to find strong parallels between Dickens’s views and those of others, one need look less at those who adopt a post-hoc reflection on events courtesy of historical distance and more at individuals who reacted to events at the time, whose concerns he echoes.

On the representations of violence in the accounts of the Mutiny, see Jenny Sharpe, Allegories of Empire: The Figure of Woman in the Colonial Text (Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Press, 1993), pp. 57–85. Letters, VIII, p. 459: phrases more or less repeated to Emile de La Rue shortly afterwards (p. 473). Moore balances these expressions by pointing out the more nuanced responses published in Household Words under Dickens’s direction. See Moore, p. 108. Dick Kooiman, ‘The Short Career of Walter Dickens in India’, Dickensian, 98 (2002), 14–28.

The position that underlies Dickens’s interpretation of events in France also informed many reformist responses to Burke’s Reflections. )18 But that position took a beating in subsequent years and did so in large part because events in France were seen as spiralling out of control, resulting in a Jacobin bloodbath, making it harder to present the violence as an initial and short-lived reflexive urge for retribution. At the same time, in Britain, the loyalist reaction against reformers and sympathizers with France caricatured their position as excusing, and thereby condoning, welcoming and inciting, the extremes of revolutionary violence.
