Dickens afterward, he said I am afraid that he has too much talent for his genius it is a fearful locomotive to which he is bound and can never be free from it nor set to rest . He daunts me! I have not the key.

There is no simple key to so prolific and multifarious an artist nor to the complexities of the man, and interpretation of birth is made harder by his possessing and feeling to need to exercise so many talents besides his imagination. How his fiction is related to these talents - practical, journalistic, oratorical, histrionic - remains controversial. Also the geniality and unequaled comedy of the novels must be related to the sufferings, errors and self-pity of their author and to his concern both for social evils and perennial grieves and limitations of humanity.

The novels cover a wide range, social, moral, emotional, and psychological. Thus, he is much concerned with very ordinary people but also with abnormality e. g.

eccentricity, depravity, madness, hallucinations, dream states . He is both the most imaginative and fantastic and the most topical and documentary of great novelists. He is unequal too a wonderfully inventive and poetic writer, he can also, even in his mature novels, write with a painfully slack conventionality.

Biographers have only since the mid-20th enough to explore the complexity of Dickens nature. Critics have always been challenged by his art, though from the start it contained enough easily acceptable ingredients, evident skill and gusto, to ensure popularity. The earlier novels were and by and large have continued to be Dickens most popular works The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, Martin Chuzzlewit, A Christmas Carol, and David Copperfield.

Critics began to demur against the later novels, deploring the loss of the freer comic .
