He made extensive use of duplicating techniques such as repetition, paradox, and multiple perspectives to increase the complexity and appeal of his fiction. Through detailed discussions of these tactics, this study illuminates the relationship between narrative artistry and moral beliefs and offers new insights regarding eight of Dickens's books composed at various stages of his life."--Jacket." ;
