Charles Dickens (1812 - 1870)

  Called "The Inimitable", Dickens was a peculiar, master storyteller with a sharp eye for social commentary, honest portrayals, and important context.  A motif of the troubled, downtrodden child recurs in his works, as well disdain for injustice and misery.  Emerson said of that Dickens had "too much talent for his genius; it is a fearful locomotive to which he is bound and can never be free from it nor set to rest. . . . 

He daunts me! I have not the key."
