mr. dickens...

born 200 years ago today...
charles dickens


the writer who brought us
such memorable characters
as the infamous tricoteuse
madame defarge


mr. dickens has been a favorite of mine for most of my life... 
I have read every one of his novels (as well as many of his stories) and enjoy returning to the most beloved ones again and again...

he was a master at developing absolutely unforgettable characters

characters that have, to quote philip womack,
 "permeated the collective imagination"
and have been
knit into the fabric of my memories

happy birthday, mr. dickens
