Oliver’s Chapter Headings

28 Dec

Did you know that Dickens was a fan of Cerventes?  It’s true.  Jeannette caught that he even used the word “quixotic” in Oliver Twist.  While most of the time, Dickens’ chapter headings are helpful,  I had flashbacks of Don Quixote when I read this one in Oliver.

Chapter XXXVI

Is a very short one, and may appear of no great importance in it’s place.  But it should be read notwithstanding, as a sequel to the last, and a key to one that will follow when it’s time arrives.

Thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Dickens.
