Abstract

Dickens's editorial methods and goals for Household Words can be more fully understood by setting them within the context of his relationships with the editors of the Edinburgh Review and, in particular, of his close ties with Francis Jeffrey. Examining these connections both illuminates the many ways in which he drew from Jeffrey's model of editorial practice and also indicates his ambitious positioning of Household Words as a mid-century, mass-market successor to the great quarterly and as a vehicle for performing his own agenda of cultural formation during the 1850s.
