Excerpt from Sketches by Boz: Illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People The first bit of original writing by Dickens which found its way into print was the sketch in this volume entitled Mr. Minns and his Cousin. In its first form as A Dinner at Poplars Walk it was contributed to The Monthly Magazine, where it appeared in December, 1833. Dickens was twenty one years old at the time, and a newspaper reporter, but he had from early boyhood been observant of his destiny, and in the offering and publication of this Sketch he enjoyed the familiar experience of the author conscious of his purpose, but heightening the effect of that consciousness when his memory was called on to reproduce the moment when he knocked at the door of Fate. He dropped his manuscript stealthily one evening into a dark letter-box in a dark Office up a dark court in Fleet Street, and when he had bought the number of the magazine containing it, walked down to Westminster Hall, he says, and turned into it for half an hour because my eyes were so dimmed with joy and pride that they could not bear the street, and were not fit to be seen there. One could wish, for the point it would make, that the happy young author on the threshold of his great career had turned aside into the cool retreat of Westminster Abbey, by that little postern door, through which so many have gone to look at his grave.

The most unique aspect of Charles Dickens' skill as a writer -- and the characteristic that propelled him to unprecedented heights of literary fame -- was his ability to immerse readers in the quotidian details of his characters' lives, loves, and struggles. That strength shines through in this vast collection of short pieces culled from Dickens' tenure as a newspaper columnist.
