Today would be Charles Dickens’s 200th anniversary. He was born in Landport and died at the age of 58 years in Gad’s Hill. He wrote several literary pieces which were and still are appreciated by many people. Who has not heard of Oliver Twist or David Copperfield? Who was not touched by the miracle like change of old Scrooge in A Christmas Carol?
I thought I could assemble some nice links which have to do something with Dickens. Enjoy clicking through them! :)
