Dickens perfectly illustrates the phenomenal energy and personal productivity seen in so many  figures of the Victorian era. This novelist, playwright, theater habitue, socializer, charity benefit  worker, lecturer, father of ten, and voluminous letter writer, was also the editor of several magazines.  From 1841 onward, he had to meet deadlines, scout out talent, dream up projects, and promote  sales — first for  Master Humphrey's Clock , then for  Household Words , and finally for  All the Year  Round.  These periodicals printed his own sketches and short stories and serialized several of his  novels.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
