Subject: RE: BS: Racial stereotypes in retellings?
I read an explanation that Dickens was slightly snobbish about the fact that he was forced to work in a blacking factory. He never mentioned it to anyone he knew, and apparently (according to this explanation), he didn't like it not only because of the hard conditions,but because of the people he was working with .
