Since I posted a review of Mrs. Dalloway today I decided to provide a quote by Virginia Woolf about Charles Dickens and his characters for my post for the Charles Dickens Month hosted by Fig and Thistle.
Virginia Woolf wrote, “we remodel our psychological geography when we read Dickens” as he creates “characters who exist not in detail, not accurately or exactly, but abundantly in a cluster of wild yet extraordinarily revealing remarks, bubble climbing on the top of bubble as the breath of the creator fills them. And the fecundity and apparent ineffectiveness have a strange effect. They make creators of us, and not merely readers and spectators.”
I am just starting my year of reading ten novels by Dickens. When I complete this task I’ll have to revisit this quote. For those who have read Dickens, what do you think of her quote?
