The emotional torment of Charles Dickens revealed at the Linton Antique Society
Author and historian Suzanne Fagence Cooper has studied and written extensively about the role of women in Victorian culture. She looks into the heart of Dickens at Linton Memorial Hall on 14 January 2016 at 8.00pm, when she explores the tension between the world-famous author’s public persona as champion of the family and socially disadvantaged and his infatuation with a young actress, which led to him abandoning his wife and living in a secret liaison.
