"The Signal-Man" (1866)
by Charles Dickens

A signal-man tells the narrator of being haunted by a spectre, whose appearance foretells tragedy on the railway.

Dickens's classic ghost story, first published as part of the MUGBY JUNCTION Christmas anthology, may have been inspired by the real-life Clayton Tunnel rail crash of 1861.


Accompanying engraving by Edward Dalziel. Depicts two men sitting and talking. The railway signal-man, dressed in his uniform hat and coat, and the narrator, dressed in a top hat and coat.

A #DigitalArt #Painting that I started back in December and recently finished. I don't often do portraits so it took me longer to get there. What made me think of it was my annual viewing of #CharlesDickens #AChristmasCarol - and yes, I've read it and his other work too but an embarrassingly long time ago.

Today, an Ash tree that grew for 160 years with hundreds of gravestones around its rootstock, fell!

The tree, located in St Pancras Gardens (London, UK), has a history that involves authors Thomas Hardy and Charles Dickens.

#CharlesDickens #ThomasHardy H/T @abundance

A large tree, fallen atop a dense pile of gravestones in St Pancras Gardens. The following info panel is placed nearby in the park:

The novelist and poet Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) is best known for his novels set in rural Wessex, however before turning to writing full time he studied architecture in London from 1862-67 under Mr Arthur Blomfield, an architect based in Covent Garden.

During the 1860s the Midland Railway line was being built over part of the original St. Pancras Churchyard. Blomfield was commissioned by the Bishop of London to supervise the proper exhumation of human remains and dismantling of tombs. He passed this unenviable task onto his protege Thomas Hardy in circa 1865.

Hardy would have spent many hours in Old St. Pancras Churchyard during the
construction of the railway, overseeing the careful removal of the bodies and tombs from the land on was it was built. The headstones around this Ash tree (Fraxinus excelsior) would have been placed here around this time. Note how the tree has since grown in amongst the stones.

A few years before Hardy's involvement here, Charles Dickens makes reference to Old S:. Pancras Churchyard in his Tale of Two Cities (1858), as the churchyard in which Roser Cly was buried and where Jerry Cruncher was known to 'fish' (a 19th Century term for "tomb robbery and body snatching").

IIlustration of the Ghost of Christmas Present from Dickens' Christmas Carol. Beneath his robes, two emaciated children "This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want.

The most common search that gets people to my site is:
"which #Victorian writer hated millais's Christ in the House of His Parents" (It must be a question on some junior college art history test.)

You can find out in this #essay, "How one bad review can really change your life-
#JohnEverettMillais, #CharlesDickens, and the #PreRaphaelite vision."

Read it here:

"Christ in the House of his Parents" by John Everett Millais. A peasant boy with a hand injury stands in the center of a wood shop. His family attends to him in different ways; His father is inspecting his hand, his mother is kissing his cheek, and a boy is coming in with a bowl of water. In the background, a dove sits on the rung of a ladder and through the door sheep are grazing in a field outside.

@neilhimself reading A Christmas Carol might be (haven't listened yet, not sure) the best version of A Christmas Carol to be had....

#NeilGaiman #CharlesDickens

@fraying And there's nothing authors talk about so much amongst themselves as the writing bizness itself.

There's a collection of letters I'm vaguely aware of involving Leo Tolstoy talking of Charles Dickens's apparently novel practice of serialising his novels in magazines. That's part of the financing / production bit I was alluding to above, though I left it out of that toot.

(I'm not sure where this appears, though if it rings a bell with anyone I'd hugely appreciate a pointer.)

And of course the Golden Age of the American Short Story existed mostly to sell cigarettes and booze. Which were also consumed by the authors themselves, as an early instance of the circular economy ....

Today in Labor History December 2, 1867: British author Charles Dickens gave his first public reading in the United States at Tremont Temple in Boston. He described his impressions of the U.S. in a travelogue, “American Notes for General Circulation.” In Notes, he condemned slavery and correlated the emancipation of the poor in England with the abolition of slavery abroad. Despite his abolitionist sentiments, some modern commentators have criticized him for not condemning Britain’s harsh crackdown during the 1860s Morant Bay rebellion in Jamaica. During his American visit, he also spent a month in New York, giving lectures, and arguing for international copyright laws and against the pirating of his work in America. The press ridiculed him, saying he should be grateful for his popularity here.
