'What dark history is this?'This is the question that hangs over Dickens's brooding novel of mayhem and murder in the eighteenth century. Set in London at the time of the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots, Barnaby Rudge tells a story of individuals caught up in the mindless violence of the mob. Lord George Gordon's dangerous appealto old religious prejudices is interwoven with the murder mystery surrounding the father of the simple-minded Barnaby. The discovery of the murderer and his involvement in the riots put Barnaby's life in jeopardy.

Based on the London anti-Catholic riots in 1780 in opposition to the introduction of a bill to repeal certain articles of legal discrimination imposed on Catholics by the Popery Act of 1698 and others. This and Tale of Two Cities are his two novels centered on historical incidents.

Not the best of Dickens. Reads like he was being paid by the word. Oh, he was. Would make a good PBS series. Good depiction of mob action.

Edgar Allan Poe wrote a perceptive essay on Barnaby Rudge. See Volume 7 of his Works, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1914. Free at archiv.org

Barnaby's raven was an inspiration for Poe's poem "The Raven". ( )

There are some really evil characters in this book. It is a historical novel, based on anti-catholic riots in London during the 1790's. With a Dickensian twist.

Brilliant. I don't know why this isn't taught in schools more. There are totally beautiful moments in this story that really remind me of Tale of Two Cities. ( )

In the year 1775, there stood upon the borders of Epping Forest, at a distance of about twelve miles from London--measuring from the Standard in Cornhill, or rather from the spot on or near to which the Standard used to be in days of yore--a house of public entertainment called the Maypole; which fact was demonstrated to all such travellers as could neither read nor write (and at that time a vast number both of travellers and stay-at-homes were in this condition) by the emblem reared on the roadside over against the house, which, if not of those goodly proportions that Maypoles were wont to present in olden times, was a fair young ash, thirty feet in height, and straight as any arrow that ever English yeoman drew.
