Originally published on my blog here in August 2001As the most popular writer of his age and as a social campaigner Charles Dickens had an immense influence which still shapes modern literature and the culture in which we live his stories helped shape our ideas of the traditional Christmas apart from the difficult to trace effects of his writing about social issuesThe man who had this influence was extraordinary in himself as well As a result he has always been a magnet for biographers from his friend John Forster onwards Ackroyd s acclaimed biography concentrates on what formed Dickens character and how his life influenced his fictionFor someone following a sedentary profession Dickens had an interesting life and was certainly an unusual personality While he could often be the life and soul of any party his self centredness made him a difficult person to deal with This is brought out strongly by Ackroyd who is also particularly good at retreading the well worn path of his relationship between his life and work especially his childhood and the probably platonic affair with Ellen TiernanIt is probably the case that to write this kind of biography you would need to be a fan and this is certainly the case with Ackroyd who likes certain of the novels far than I do and hasn t really a bad word to say about any This isn t really a failing as there is no particular reason why people shouldn t have different opinions but it does lead to an occasional loss of sympathy on the part of this readerAnother minor problem with this biography which reduces its usefulness as any kind of reference is the lack of dated information Not only is there no separate chronology of Dickens life but there are relatively few dates given in the text to try to work out say the dates of the first and last appearances of Bleak House in serial form is extremely difficult Berlin Alexanderplatz you would need to be a fan and this is certainly the case with Ackroyd who likes certain of the novels far than I do and hasn t really a bad word to say about any This isn t really a failing as there is no particular reason why people shouldn t have different opinions but it does lead to an occasional loss of sympathy on the part of this readerAnother minor problem with this biography which reduces its usefulness as any kind of reference is the lack of dated information Not only is there no separate chronology of Dickens life but there are relatively few dates given in the text to try to work out say the dates of the first and last appearances of Bleak House in serial form is extremely difficult

If an appointments committee existed to examine the CVs references of potential biographers before selecting the best fitted for the task they would have been hard pressed not to have at least short listed Ackroyd to write about Dickens He is well ualified to undertake the task being the author of other excellent biographies particularly on Eliot Blake Thomas More a novelist of some standing in his own right and therefore with a considerable insight into the processes involved in developing his own extravagant plots characters like Dickens a writer obsessed with London like Dickens also someone with experience of hack work witness sadly his recent rash of biographies and therefore with a good understanding of its nature pressures So having passed the audition in retrospect whew I ll bet that s a relief to him the biography is a splendid piece of work Incidentally I hope they never appoint that committee What literary committee would ever have selected a drunken whoring short arse and Scotsman to boot like Boswell to write his biography of Samuel Johnson or appointed a militant leftie MP like Michael Foot and a PlymothianPlymouthian to boot to write his excellent biography of Swift I m also sure that they would have been taken in by the seemingly glowing CV of A N Wilson and appointed him to add to his ever growing list of hack written biographies of everyone under the sun At his very best Ackroyd is a chameleon writer of biographies his style of writing adapts to and reflects the nature of his subject in a uite uniue way In Dickens the biography takes on a novel like uality in the sense of having the ualities of a great novel Dickens is revealed in all his complexity and ambiguity of character In his narrative Ackroyd returns again and again to each of the themes he finds revealed in Dickens life and character building the overall portrait in a spiral rather than a linear way Each return to a theme adds to the understanding of and the depth and the contradictions revealed in that aspect of Dickens the manAs Ackroyd sums up his purpose in writing of Dickens I never did like or dislike him All I wanted to do was to understand him which is uite a different thing In that sense he is like a character in a novel I might write I never dislike any of my characters I have created I simply try to understand them and in understanding them to bring them to life In order to achieve this Ackroyd makes use of very thorough research interpreting massive amounts of evidence and opinions from Dickens contemporaries He uses all his sources carefully sensitively and with great imaginative insight At times he builds a composite picture from a number of sources for instance in showing him as a public reader or a conversationalist But he is not afraid to display the ambiguities and even frank contradictions in his evidenceHe avoids the trap that so many contemporary biographers leap into head first of drawing conclusions and then manipulating the evidence to back up their conclusion For instance Ackroyd presented much evidence about the relationship between Ellen Ternan very detailed evidence but in the end he refuses to reach any solid conclusion of his own about it I have a kind of complex about discovering everything there is to know but this is probably because I realise just how much cannot be known cannot be recovered Halleluiah a biographer who is happy to remain inconclusive and to admit the difficulties presented by the task I admire him greatly for it Too many enter the task with a determination to make new revelations about their subject to produce some startling new facet of them or their lives Often the evidence they use is either highly selective or is not sufficient to support the conclusions reached Perhaps the most absurd I ve come across was in A N Wilson s sorry to return to that hobbyhorse of mine biography of C S Lewis Pulling out the old chestnut as to whether Lewis had a sexual relationship with Mrs Moore he states that as there was no conclusive evidence either way on balance one had to conclude that there had been one What Am I missing something here I don t really care on which side his conclusions had fallen if he had presented like Ackroyd detailed evidence But that s just plain bad biography and thankfully Dickens is written by too good a biographer to fall into such a lazy trapAs would be expected from a novelist writing about a novelist he produces great insights into how Dickens writing life link together Dickens fiction is not some separate entity to be extracted from his life and other works but rather part of the fabric of his existence as he makes his way through the world However he is also aware of the dangers in trying to draw too clear a set of links between details of Dickens life and of his fiction Early in the book he warns against the simplistic idea of making his father Micawber and his mother Mrs Nickleby He shows the parallels but spends much time showing the complexities of the parents and of Dickens relationships with them I liked the way he showed interesting links between Dickens own personality and his characters In monsters like these Pecksniff Scrooge he was caricaturing certain aspects of his temperament that is why there is always that particle of affection which springs from self love and it is precisely that affection which makes these characters so vividly alive In his summing up he gets closest to the nub of how Dickens fiction interweaves with Dickens the man and Dickens the writer When his fiction is surveyed in all its paradoxes its inconsistencies and its complexities it ought also to be emphasised that such ambivalences are not resolved because given the nature of the man and of the writer they could never be resolved His books are in that sense as incomplete and as contradictory as his own self as any human being I loved the brief commentary he provided on each book especially that on Bleak House Everything is touching everything else The city is the fog covered sphere which Dickens revolves in his hand trying to peer into the centre where past and future are gathered This beautifully encapsulates something of the nature of that novel It s interesting that it also might also be said of some of Ackroyd s own novels especially The House of Doctor Dee In fact taking out the name Dickens it might have come from one of his own novelsThis was one of the most satisfying biographies I ve ever read and one I will dip into on many occasions in the futureI could share a whole set of favourite uotes from the book but just one that made me smile a number of times as it s come to mind It is characteristic of Dickens who when he grasps the wrong end of the stick never fails to belabour everyone in sight with it

One of the most beautifully written and engaging biographies ever Ackroyd focuses clearly on the personality and affect of the author the forces in his life including continuing reinvention of the self that made Dickens write and keep writing The book contains a bit of literary criticism but this biography is most decidedly not of the life and works varietyEven at 1100 pages I was sorry that the book weren t twice as long It is one of those books that I hate to finish so after reaching the half way point I ration the pages I permit myself to read in a day
