Born 200 years ago today (Feb 7th 1812), this is the anniversary of one of the greatest writer’s in history. Great, not merely for his achievements, both critical and popularist, but because of his profound social conscience. This is the very essence of a modern writer, far ahead of his time, poignant, witty, topical – then AND now!
So, as I embark on my own literary journey, of quite a different nature, I stop to think on the great man who inspired so many and caused a sea-change in political and social life.
Thank you Charles Dickens and…Happy Birthday! 😀 xx
