Master Humphreys Clock Charles Dickens CHAPTER I Master Humphrey, from His Clock-Side in the Chimney Corner THE reader must not expect to know where I live. At present, it is true, my abode may be a question of little or no import to anybody but if I should carry my readers with me, as I hope to do, and there should spring up between them and me feelings of homely affection and regard attaching something of interest to matters ever so slightly connected with my fortunes or my speculations, even ...

Life And Adventures Of Martin Chuzzlewit Charles Dickens PREFACE What is exaggeration to one class of minds and perceptions, is plain truth to another. That which is commonly called a long-sight, perceives in a prospect innumerable features and bearings non-existent to a short-sighted person. I sometimes ask myself whether there may occasionally be a difference of this kind between some writers and some readers whether it is ALWAYS the writer who colours highly, or whether it is now and then the ...

Little Dorrit Charles dickens Preface Preface to the 1857 Edition I have been occupied with this story, during many working hours of two years. I must have been very ill employed, if I could not leave its merits and demerits as a whole, to express themselves on its being read as a whole. But, as it is not unreasonable to suppose that I may have held its threads with a more continuous attention than anyone else can have given them during its desultory publication, it is not unreasonable to ask ...

Hunted down Charles Dickens Chapter I. Most of us see some romances in life. In my capacity as Chief Manager of a Life Assurance Office, I think I have within the last thirty years seen more romances than the generality of men, however unpromising the opportunity may, at first sight, seem. As I have retired, and live at my ease, I possess the means that I used to want, of considering what I have seen, at leisure. My experiences have a more remarkable aspect, so reviewed, than they had when they ...

They may serve, however, if I let them remain, to suggest how very difficult I find it to begin to explain my explanation. An uncouth phrase: and yet I do not see my way to a better. Second Chapter IT happened in THIS ...

Doctor Marigold Charles Dickens Part I I am a Cheap Jack, and my own fathers name was Willum Marigold. It was in his lifetime supposed by some that his name was William, but my own father always consistently said, No, it was Willum. On which point I content myself with looking at the argument this way: If a man is not allowed to know his own name in a free country, how much is he allowed to know in a land of slavery As to looking at the argument through the medium of the Register, Willum ...

A Christmas Carol By Charles Dickens Stave 1 Marleys Ghost Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooges name was good upon Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind I dont mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have ...
