Thus in portraying some women Dickens did idealize in some way or other. That is a part of his method. Dec 13,  · Dickens' Women - Miriam Margolyes Miriam Margolyes Considering that CharlesDickens enjoys a reputation that is second only to William Shakespeare, it isn’t surprising that his bicentenary has passed by with the usual hagiographical homage staged mainly by the British establishment – the British Council and the BBC.

Thanks for making this home-and-stone-investments.comally I didn't enjoy David Copperfield that much, yet Tale is probably one of the best I've ever read I might sound like an idiot but i'm not trying to diss dickens at all, i just find that some of his books really deserve to be trimmed, so the abridged ones ain't so bad.
