SEES PICKWICK AS J0HNS01
Canadian Writer Believes Dickens*
Famous Character Was 8kotch
of the Qreat lexicographer.
A discussion has arisen between
B. R. Thompson in the Nineteenth Cen
tury and a writer in the Toronto Mail
and Bmpire as to whether Dickens'
famous character of "Mr. Pickwick"
is an adaptation of the personality of
Dr. Samuel Johnson. The magazine
writer holds that this is the case that
the novelist was inspired by James
Boswell'8 "Life of Johnson" and that
the alleged .plagiarism is proved by a
certain characterization of Pickwick
which coincides almost to a word with
one of Boswell's descriptions of John
The Toronto writer believes if
Dickens did copy his character from
the noted lexicographer he did it un
consciously and without any attempt
to steal the fruits of Boswell's writing.
It is admitted that there are many
points of resemblance between Pick
wick and Johnson. Both were rather
portly, burly men. They had a com
mon weakness for the use of resound
ing and dignified speech both had
little difficulty in summoning Immense
reserves of dignity to suppress the im
pudent or the flippant, and both had
'Hut," says tbe*~Mail and Empire
writer, "we have not the imagination
to picture Doctor Johnson disporting
himself on skates after the fashion of
Mr. Pickwick, and there is a sort of
kindly credulity about the latter that
we find distinctly lacking in Johnson.
Moreover, we never suspect Mr. Pick
wick of being a bully, although it is
to be admitted that when he orders
the skates of Mr Winkle to be re
moved he shows a Johnsonian stern
ness and impatience with pretense."
