    Charles Dickens is among the greatest English novelists, and the power of his prose can be found in his portrayals of the harsh social realities of his time, from the depiction of poverty-stricken orphan Oliver Twist to the squalor of the slums and skewering of the justice system in Bleak House.

Lucinda Hawksley, Catherine’s great-great-great-granddaughter.

      Dickens struggled a lot with that book, but eventually it became a masterpiece that the world has been drawn to and has tried to re-portray in every single medium available to man. It’s true that some of those re-portrayals are a little far out, but the point is that the story touches the heart of the fact that love is the focus of Christmas.
