Hi Lance--
I just found this very amusing animated version of Dickens' life over at the BBC. There is even a game called "Survive Dickens' London."

Thought I'd share...

Campaspe

Some people find the closing paragraph of this passage to be a bit too obvious and editorializing, but I love Dickens for his passion. When you read about what life was like for the poor children of Victorian London, you realize why, to borrow a phrase from Flannery O'Connor, he had to shout because he was talking to the deaf. Jo's fate shows what becomes of the helpless when there is no social safety net ... "dying around us, every day."
