Charles Dickens Is Exhausting

“As Mr. Grewgious sat and wrote by his fire that afternoon, so did the clerk of Mr. Grewgious sit and write, by his fire.  A pale, puffy-faced, dark-haired person of thirty, with big dark eyes that wholly wanted lustre and a dissatisfied doughy complexion that seemed to ask to be sent to the baker’s, this attendant was a mysterious being, possessed of some strange power over Mr. Grewgious.”

I realize the common vernacular of an age changes, and has changed significantly since Dickens’ time, but I think the fact that he was paid by the word probably cut into that whole ‘artistic integrity’ thing we all go on so much about.  That is all.
