Course DescriptionCharles Dickens was one of the greatest novelists in English literary history. Few writers have ever equaled and perhaps none have ever surpassed him in creating memorable characters and depicting London in the Victorian era. A master of creating the flat character, Dickens skillfully negotiated sentimentality while presenting human cruelty and suffering with edges softened by a gentle sympathy and humor. This series seeks to bring Dickens to life and to delve into his novels to find the deep connections those works achieve.
