“Dickens as a novelist and prose poet is to be classed in the front rank of the noble company to which he belongs.  He has revived the novel of genuine practical life, as it existed in the works of Fielding, Smollett, and Goldsmith; but at the same time has given to his material an individual coloring and expression peculiarly his own.  His characters, like those of his great exemplars, constitute a world of their own, whose truth to nature every reader instinctively recognizes in connection with their truth to darkness.”—­E.P.  Whipple.
