Martin Chuzzlewit

Martin Chuzzlewit - Charles Dickens, Patricia Ingham This is a good example of why Dickens continues to give satisfaction and pleasure to lots of readers, even though his wordy narrative, his deus ex machina plots and his moral lessons are frequently considered outdated by the sophisticated literary public.
His secret is infinite love and compassion for all but the most evil of his characters. He is prepared to understand and forgive anyone who realizes that forgiveness is needed, and asks the readers to forgive with him, too.
