Gilding the Dead: Remembering the Past in Oliver Twist On the first day of class we mentioned that we were reviving the great Charles Dickens; with his name and prestige, I imagined him rising through the floor of the classroom a la Scrooge in a three-piece tweed suit covered in the damp humus of his grave.
