In this study I have not been concerned with Charles Dickens as the man, or humorist, or novelist; but I have confined my investigation to Charles Dickens' interest in the theatre. I shall show how he tried to express his theatrical ambitions by acting, producing, and directing plays though he was really a novelist; and how his entire career was colored by his interest in these various aspects of the theatre.
