Why should you read Charles Dickens?

The starving orphan seeking a second helping of gruel. The spinster wasting away in her tattered wedding dress. The stone-hearted miser plagued by the ghost of Christmas past. Dickens has always been one of my favorite writers ever: the worlds and stories he created not only spoke of our society, its problems and pains; but also tis hopes, dreams and fights for survival.

More than a century after his death, these characters remain recognizable figures from the work of Charles Dickens. But what are the features of Dickens’ writing that make it so special?

I hope you can enjoy this video and as you do so reflect on why you think Dickens still holds so much appeal for modern readers.
