CHARLES DICKENS AND HIS THEMES!IN MEMORIAM: DICKENS @200!

CHARLES DICKENS WROTE ABOUT THE MISERY OF CHILDREN,MOSTY ORPHANS,WORKHOUSE-CONDITIONS,THE PATHETIC STATE OF GOVERNMENT WELFARE-POLICIES,THE ILLS OF BURGEONING CAPITALIST-CLASS. . .et.al. .
HIS NOVELS NUMBERING 14/15 ARE THE BEST LITERARY MIRROR TO UNDERSTAND THE COMPLICATED WEB OF VICTORIAN SOCIETY.IT IS OFTEN REMARKED THAT DICKENS WAS THE SECOND BEST LITERARY FIGURE AFTER SHAKESPEARE IN BRITISH LITERATURE!
IN TERMS OF CHARACTERIZATION,HE REMAINS UNRIVALLED.HE HAD THE GIFT OF INFUSING HUMOR IN THE EVIL-CHARACTERS AND THEREBY MAKING IT HARD FOR A READER TO GO GAGA OVER THAT EVIL-CHARACTER!
THE ELEMENT OF PATHOS WAS AN ESSENTIAL TRAIT OF HIS WRITING.
DICKENS HAD N STILL HAS MANY CRITICS WHO DON’T ATTACH MUCH ENCOMIUM TO THE WRITER FOR BEING VERY PATTERNED,LACKING MULTI-DIMENSIONAL CHARACTER-ANALYSIS AND THE OUTDATED NATURE OF THE SUBJECTS OF HIS NOVELS FOR THE CAUSES DICKENS WAS CRUSADING WERE LONG CHAMPIONED THROUGH VARIOUS REFORMATORY MEASURES. . .etc. .

WHAT IS IMPORTANT AT THE END OF THE DAY IS THE ‘LIKEABILITY’ AND,UNDOUBTEDLY,READERS AROUND THE WORLD LOVE READING DICKENS.THAT’S WHAT MAKES DICKENS TIMELESS!IN TERMS OF STORY-TELLING AND POPULATING HIS NOVELS WITH THE CREATURES OF ALL CLASSES OF THE VICTORIAN SOCIETY,DICKENS REMAINS MATCHLESS!

A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THIS ENERGETIC AND SYMPATHISER TO THE POORS OF HIS TIMES!MANY RETURNS OF SUCH ANNIVERSARY!MAY THE ENIGMA N ECSTASY OF READING DICKENS BE IMMORTAL!
