Memoir of Charles Dickens
The lives of men of genius when happy, are ordinarily uneventful. It may, perhaps, be one of the reaspms for the paucity of materials available for the life of him who was "not for an age but for all time," that our Shakespeare went through life a prosperous gentlemen, that he had shares, and rents, and messages, and tenements, and that he died at last in affluence, in his bed, in his own house, near the pleasant town he loved so well.
