Old Postcard, John Browdie, Nicholas Nickleby
"It is our custom, sometimes, to tell sitters what part
we are upon, in order that if there's any particular
expression they want introduced they may throw it
in, at the time, you know".   Miss La Creevy.
John Browdie.
"Nicholas Nickleby" was Dickens's third novel. It was published in monthly parts between March 1838 and September 1839 and
takes as its central theme the mistreatment of children in notorious boarding schools to which they were sent by uncaring parents.
In spite of its serious subject, this is one of Dickens' funniest works. Follow

"Mr Squeers had but one eye, and the popular
prejudice runs in favour of two......and when he
smiled his expression bordered closely on the
villainous."
""My niece, my lord," said Ralph.
"Then my ears did not deceive me, and it's not a
wa-a-x work," said his lordship. "How de do ? I'm
very happy."
"She was forced into a kneeling position by a crowd
of shouting tormentors, and compelled to swallow a
spoonful of the odious mixture, rendered more than
usually savoury by the immersion in the bowl of
Master Wackford's head."
"Concentrating into that one moment all his feelings
of rage, scorn, and indignation, Nicholas sprang
upon him, wrested the weapon from his hand. and
pinning him by the throat, beat the ruffian till he
roared for mercy."
"Consider, Kate !" cried Nicholas...."When I
consider all, and think of what has passed, I
need be made of iron to stand before him."
