Dickens @ 200

Nifty little animated biography of Charles Dickens, the brilliant Victorian novelist who would have been 200 years old today, had he not died 142 years previously.

Though not his greatest literary achievement by any means, my personal favourite of all his works is “The Pickwick Papers”… such a delightfully curious book I was quite happy to discover at an early age.

    There’s a walking tour this May that follows Dickens’ steps when he visited Toronto way back when.
    Maybe a nice bowl of gruel will greet us at the end.

  2. I didn’t know that Dickens had visited Toronto on his travels.

    Sadly, “walking tours” are out of the question for me these days until such time as I get my other hip replaced. A couple of blocks is about all I can manage before the pain becomes unbearable.

  3. Quite so.

    Thanks for the links… interesting reading.
