Charles Dickens tea towel

This literary gift celebrates Charles Dickens. One of the most famous Victorian authors, Dickens wrote over 15 novels, including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol. Through his writing, he greatly concerned himself with social issues, basing two novels, Great Expectations and David Copperfield, on his own experiences in his youth, when his father was imprisoned for terrible debt and he was sent to work in a blacking factory at just 12 years of age.

This quotation is taken from Dickens's novela 'Doctor Marigold' which examines critical social issues which were much debated in Victorian England – namely adoption and the place of the disabled in the public eye. His social commentaries on the overlooked, the poor, and the invisible continue to resonate for readers today.
