Ellen Lawless, seemed to be echoed by those of heroines in the three novels - Estella, Bella and Helena Landless - but nothing definite is known about how she responded to Dickens, what she felt for him at the time, or how close any of these later love stories were to aspects or phrases of their relationship. G. K.

Chesterton - Charles Dickens, London, 1903, reprinted 1977. pp. 114-127 There is nothing very remarkable in the story, commended one early transmitter of it, and this seems just.

Many middle-aged men feel an itch to renew their emotional lives with a pretty young girl, even if, unlike Dickens, they cannot plead indulgence for the wayward and unsettled feeling which is part of the tenure on which one holds an imaginative life. But the eventual disclosure of this episode caused surprise, shock or piquant satisfaction, being related of a man whose rebelliousness against his society had seemed to take only impeccably reformist shapes. A critic in 1851, listing the reasons for his unique popularity, had cited above all, his deep reverence for the household sanctities, his enthusiastic worship of the household gods.

After these disclosures he was, disconcertingly or intriguingly a more complex man and, partly as a consequence, Dickens the novelist also began to be seen as more complex, less conventional, than had been realized. The stimulus was important, though Nellys significance, biographically and critically, has proved far from inexhaustible. In the longer term, Kathleen Tillotsons remark is more suggestive his life-long love affair with his reading public, when all is said, is by far the most interesting love-affair of his life.

This took a new form, about the time of Dickens separation from his wife, in his giving public readings .
