"The power of [Dickens] is so amazing that the reader at once becomes his captive." William Makepeace Thackeray
While Charles Dickens is best known and celebrated for his prolific journalistic output and novelistic creations, he also devoted some of his creative energies to verse.
At turns sentimental, melancholy, playful, humorous and satirical, and ranging considerably in tone and format - from songs to narrative prologues for novels and "squibs" for newspapers - the poems in this collection highlight Dickens' s gift for language and his unfailing power to touch.
About the Author
A literary phenomenon in his lifetime and renowned as much for his journalism and public speaking as for his novels, Charles Dickens (1812 - 70) now ranks as the most important Victorian writer and one of the most influential and popular authors in the English language. His memorable and vividly rendered characters and his combination of humour, trenchant satire and compassion have left an indelible mark on our collective imagination.
