Charles John Huffam Dickens was born in February 1820, best known and celebrated for his prolific journalistic output and novelistic creations. He also devoted much of his creative energy to verse. Here are songs, choruses and concerted pieces from The Village Coquettes, a comic opera of 1836, lyrics from The Lamplighter, a farce of 1838, songs from The Pickwick Papers 1837, political squibs from The Examiner 1841, Prologue to Westland Marston's play The Patrician's Daughter 1842, a word in season from The Keepsake 1844, verses from The Daily News 1846 including The British Lion and The Hymn of the Wiltshire Laborers, New Song, The Song of the Wreck from Wilkie Collins's play The Lighthouse 1855 and from The Frozen Deep 1856, and a child's hymn from The Wreck of the Golden Mary 1856. Extra material on his life and works, the lyrics are by turn sentimental, melancholy, playful, humorous and satirical. All highlight Dickens's gift for language and his unfailing power to touch. 133pp in paperback.
