Anniversary of the Death of Charles Dickens
Today is the anniversary of the death in 1870 of Charles Dickens. His works are available online at many sites, including VictorianWeb and Great Books Index, and here are links to many other hosts.
There is a virtual tour of London's Dickens Museum here. Another virtual tour is of Dickens' birthplace.
Bleak House is often praised as Dickens' best work, and there are places devoted specifically to that book, including this page at Cornell College and David Perdue's page. Here's the wikipedia entry.
Dickens' works have been dramatized, and some are available on DVD.
