Excerpt from Household Words, Vol. 7: August, 1853 Old Martin did not like any joking upon the subject of his smuggling stories. He shook his head, and merely said, Wait till next time. Then, to put an end to the conversation, he drew out his Spy-glass and began to observe what the men were doing in the Jenny - a kind of barge, in which lived two look-out men, and which always stood, high and dry, on a part of the beach. But, said I (for I would not let him off so cheaply), they tell me the last man was just such a bumpkin as that fellow you caught this morning.

What say you, broth ers he adds, turning to his three com panions, and glancing at the stream again. A clamorous cry of acquiescence in his pro position greets him. The monk endeavours to beat a retreat; but Peter, with a great Dutch oath, swears he shall do penance, and, catching him by the cowl and waistband, throws him clean into the water. When he has washed a few of his sins out, he says, laughing, we will fish him out. But the current is rapid and the stream is deep, and the monk is never fished out again. He is drowned.

Mapping the World in Household Words

Dickens, Journalism, and Nationhood examines Charles Dickens’ weekly family magazine Household Words in order to develop a detailed picture of how the journal negotiated, asserted and simultaneously deconstructed Englishness as a unified (and sometimes unifying) mode of expression. It offers close readings of a wide range of materials that self-consciously focus on the nature of England as well as the relationship between Britain and the European continent, Ireland, and the British colonies. Starting with the representation and classification of identities that took place within the framework of the Great Exhibition of 1851, it suggests that the journal strives for a model of the world in concentric circles, spiraling outward from the metropolitan center of London. Despite this apparent orderliness, however, each of the national or regional categories constructed by the journal also resists and undermines such a clear-cut representation.
