  • [GMT] Young Dickens and How He 'Invente' Christmas - Ian Porter - via Zoom

    [GMT] Young Dickens and How He 'Invente' Christmas - Ian Porter - via Zoom


    December 2, 2023

    I am a historian, novelist, public speaker and walks guide inLondon, and my particular expertise is 19th and early 20th centurysocial history. I am a Londoner but also used to live close to Chathamuntil recently. So not surprisingly, I am a big Dickens fan! My threenovels are set in the East End slums of 1888, on the Titanic and inthe Suffragette movement 1912-14 and during the Spanish Flu 1918-19.

    The talk starts with Dickens' early life before he became a writer,then you hear of his writing success and fame not leading to financialstability and thus his need to write a money-sinner, which turned out to be A Christmas Carol. I then change tack to give a brief history of Christmas prior to Victorian Times, before linking it with Dickens,and how he was important in bringing about some of the aspects of modern Christmases that we still enjoy today.
