Dickens Fun

Though I've always enjoyed Dickens, somehow I missed reading Pickwick Papers. This pair of volumes is a fun read and I especially like the fact that many things help me get into a more Medieval frame of mind. Although Dickens is post SCA period, there are still many touches- such as the mention of multiple patens at the door of a bachelor's apartment, which help in visualizing the way of life in those days. As always, Dickens caracterizations are amusing and names very unique. I also recently read both of Robert Graves Claudius books for inspiration from the Roman period, and plan to read the Norman Conquests next.
