Scents and smells in the novels of Dickens

Fascinating podcast about the role of scent in the works of Dickens. Incredible for writers of historical fiction, especially for those exploring the Victorian world.

Charles Dickens wrote about a time of rapid industrialisation in Britain, which brought wealth to some but misery to many. What would it have smelt like, and how does smell evoke corruption, despair and hope? Great exploration of setting.
