Pictures from Italy is a travelogue by Charles Dickens, written in 1846. The book reveals the concerns of its author as he presents, according to Kate Flint, the country "like a chaotic magic-lantern show, fascinated both by the spectacle it offers, and by himself as spectator".

1844年,狄更斯从辛苦的小说写作中抽身出来,带领家人赴法国和意大利旅游度假,他们游览了意大利最著名的景点:热那亚、罗马、那不勒斯(当时维苏威火山仍在闷燃)、佛罗伦萨和威尼斯。在他的游记当中,狄更斯描绘了一个具有巨大反差的国度:宏伟的建筑与城市的凋敝,在古代的遗迹旁边当代人的日常生活。令他大感兴趣的是意大利那丰富多彩的街市生活,尤其是罗马狂欢节上的着装、异性换装以及饱满的活力。意大利之行也是狄更斯创作生涯中的重要一环,他在意大利写下了圣诞故事之二、中篇小说《古教堂的钟声》,而且从《双城记》《小杜丽》等长篇名著中也可以明显看出他从法国-意大利之行中获得的素材。《意大利风光》这部游记为我们提供了不少有关作家思想与创作的有用材料,颇值得一读。

In 1844, Dickens took a respite from writing novels and for several months traveled through France and Italy with his family. They visited the most famous sights: Genoa, Rome, Naples (with Vesuvius still smouldering), Florence and Venice. In his travelogue the author portrays a nation of great contrasts: grandiose buildings and urban desolation, and everyday life beside ancient monuments. But it is his encounters with Italy's colorful street life that capture the imagination. Dickens is particularly drawn to the costumes, cross-dressing, and sheer exuberance of the Roman carnival. From the book we learn that Dickens was an early riser and walker, and that he enjoyed touring the major attractions on foot.

查尔斯·狄更斯(1812年2月7日—1870年6月9日),19世纪英国批判现实主义小说家。狄更斯特别注意描写生活在英国社会底层的“小人物”的生活遭遇,深刻地反映了当时英国复杂的社会现实,为英国批判现实主义文学的开拓和发展做出了卓越的贡献。他的作品至今依然盛行,对英国文学发展起到了深远的影响。主要作品《匹克威克外传》、《雾都孤儿》、 《老古玩店》、《艰难时世》、《我们共同的朋友》、《双城记》等。

Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812-9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most well-known fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented popularity, and by the twentieth century he was widely seen as a literary genius by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.

ON a fine Sunday morning in the Midsummer time and weather of eighteen hundred and forty-four, it was, my good friend, when-don't be alarmed; not when two travellers might have been observed slowly making their way over that picturesque and broken ground by which the first chapter of a Middle Aged novel is usually attained -but when an English travelling-carriage of considerable proportions, fresh from the shady halls of the Pantechnicon near Belgrave Square, London, was observed (by a very small French soldier; for I saw him look at it) to issue from the gate of the Hotel Meurice in the Rue Rivoli at Paris.
