Green Thumb’s Column: Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens! (And the Artful Dodger, Oliver Twist, etc.)


Well, that’s really all that can be said. I love your books, they are incredible well-written. You have engaging plots, interesting characters, and a brilliant way of using voice, word choice, and diction to reveal things about your characters. Of course, most authors do that, but you’re especially brilliant. I applaud you, good sir. You, Charles Dickens, make my cynical, cynical life better and sweeter. Oh, Oliver Twist! Ebenezer Scrooge! Bob Cratchit! Marley! Fezzewig! Wackford Squeers! Hooray, hooray, hooray. Now, I bid you a pleasant, “Good day.”
