'Well, well, well, here I am, back to chronicling society, the 21st century society, to celebrate my birthday.
And what have I discovered? Lots of odd issues; all predictable, though.
For instance, the rise and fall of Goldman Sachs.
Just as some of my wealthy characters in Little Dorrit lost their investments when the seemingly almighty institution Merdles Bank fails, so have thousands of clients lost theirs, due to Goldman Sachs failure.
And the crisis, oh, the world financial crisis ... I just wonder why my Micawber Principle in David Copperfield hasn't been applied more often.'
Quite adamant, Mr Charles Dickens, isn’t he?
Why don’t you read some of his works and try to find other issues in them that are still relevant to your own world?
Please leave your comments, or, if you feel like it, become Charles Dickens yourself and create some more chronicles.
