 "More than any other British writer other than Shakespeare, Dickens has engaged the popular imagination with his crowded gallery of memorable characters and his detailed rendering of the life of his times. His stories and people are familiar even to those who have never read the novels: Oliver Twist, Scrooge, and Mr. Pickwick are as well known as Hamlet, Romeo, or Falstaff."
