Excerpt: ... Art. XII.--Charles Dickens. To give so much pleasure, to add so much to the happiness of the world, by his writings, as Mr. Dickens has succeeded in doing, is a felicity that has never been attained in such full measure by any other author. For the space of a generation he has done his beneficent work, and there are few Englishspeaking men or women who do not feel themselves under peculiar obligation to the great novelist, and bound to him, not by any mere cold literary tie, but by the warm and vital cords of personal sympathy. The critic gladly lays down his pen in presence of a genius which has won for itself such a recognition, and willingly adopts the words of Ben Jonson in addressing one of his great contemporaries: --"I yield, I yield. The matter of your praise Flows in upon me, and I cannot raise A bank against it: nothing but the round, Large clasp of Nature such a wit can bound." If we reflect what contemporary literature would be without Dickens's works, --how much enjoyment would be taken out of our lives, --how much knowledge of human nature and feeling for it, how much genial humor, how much quickening of sympathy, how much heartiness, would be lost, had this long series of books never appeared, we can better appreciate what we owe to their writer. Gratitude is often a clumsy virtue, and Mr. Dickens has had abundant experience of it, in its most awkward as well as in its graceful forms. But even the least attractive expressions of it retain something of the charm which belongs to every sincere manifestation of feeling, and in Mr. Dickens's case the truth is that he has been willing to make everybody his friend; and there is in him, as he has said of himself, so much human nature, that we may trust no expression of honest regard is wasted on him....
