  • Charles Dickens was one of the most famous and successful writers in 19th-century England. Along with 14 novels, many of them rich in topical allusion, he produced a body of work as reporter, essayist, correspondent, and editor that constitutes a lifelong account of the facts of Victorian life as he knew them. Dickens was a lover of facts in his work as a reporter, but his nonfiction work is anything but a mere collection of data. In his reporting and commentary, Dickens is often an outraged reformer, uncompromising in his attacks on privileged interests. In the early sketches, he is a writer trying to achieve a synthesis of art and social criticism. The surviving letters, some 14,500 of which the editors of the ongoing Pilgrim Edition have collected, reveal a man of astonishing energies, who attempted to impose an artist’s vision of order on every aspect of his life and work. In the late essays, Dickens emerges as a restless, poetic wanderer who masterfully blends observation, autobiography, and allegory. Much of this prose is valuable as a window on the novelist’s attitudes and preoccupations, but most of it stands on its own, the work of an acute observer and dedicated craftsman. >

الوصف

Sa Seigneurie pouvait sans peine engloutir nombre de choses ; de méchants cerveaux pensaient même qu’elle absorbait rapidement les trésors de la France ; mais son chocolat ne pouvait atteindre son noble gosier qu’avec l’aide de quatre hommes vigoureux, sans compter le cuisinier qui l’avait fait. (…) L’un de ces valets apportait la chocolatière en présence de Sa Seigneurie ; le second faisait mousser le chocolat avec le petit instrument destiné à cet usage, instrument dont il avait la charge ; le troisième présentait la serviette ; le quatrième, l’homme aux deux montres, versait le chocolat dans la tasse. Ces quatre valets étaient indispensables à Monseigneur pour soutenir le rang qu’il occupait sous les cieux, inclinés devant lui. C’eût été pour son écusson une tâche indélébile si le chocolat qu’il prenait tous les matins lui avait été ignoblement servi par trois valets. Il n’aurait eu qu’à mourir ; s’il n’y en avait eu que deux !
