One of the great creative achievements of Dickens was the invention and vivid quality of his descriptive language.
It doesn't take too long, in any Dickens novel, to identify a memorable and imaginative description of a character's appearance , behaviour and way of speaking.
What do you think are some of the memorable examples of how Dickens describes a character ?
Can you think of how Dickens uses nouns and adjectives to communicate a clear picture of a character whether they are a hero, a villain, or someone who might be a part of the story for just a short moment ?
Looking forward to reading your thoughts on this!
