What Does Dickensian Mean?

If you didn’t know for sure, you may have guessed. It refers to Charles Dickens and authors who have the same qualities as the enormously popular English author, Charles John Huffman Dickens, who lived from 1812 to 1870. Dickens’s signature style exhibited kindly humor and a humanness that awakened the reader’s emotions. He had the ability to portray the suffering and pitiful circumstances of common yet unusual folks living among us, and make it interesting and entertaining. Dickens created these characters from people he encountered in his every day life, including his father who was sent to a poorhouse for not paying his bills. In other words, Dickensian means, an author who writes like Charles Dickens.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the historical series, The Lion’s Trace Available here:
