提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
[Homework]
As a kid, I was too thin, I was very bookish. You know, I love reading and I was also into comedy. But I also regard those two worlds being so separated. Literature was serious and for the funny stuff, I spend all my money on comics and listening to great radio comedy shows like *’s galaxy. And latter I remember when I got hooked on Dickens, I picked up the Old Curiosity Shop as you do. And very earlier on, I came across this episode of a great guy who * who has no money. And he’s in a pub and bought a meal. And he says to the innkeeper he will come around later that night and pay for it. He writes something down the book and his friend, *’s friend says *, you just writing down a reminder that comes back this evening. And Dickens says not exactly, Fred, I enter in this little book the name of the streets that I can’t go down when shops were open. This dinner today closes long *. I bought a pair of boots in Great Queen Street last week. I make that no thorough fair too. There is only one avenue to the strand left open now. And I shall have to stop up that tonight with a pair of gloves. So what Dickens was doing is he got a map of London. And He just crossing over the streets that he can move them. Because he owns money people there. And I was thinking what it was funny. But it reminds me of something. It reminds me of, I don’t know, a standard of comedy routine or a sketch of all that things that Charlie Chaplin scene where he is quite happily eating his own shoes because he has no food left and no money to buy some. And that for me was a great eye- opener about Dickens. I think we are put off by this notion we have of Charles Dickens as this great Victorian novelist because it implies his seriousness where in fact, I think he is the finest comedian we’ve ever produced.

By that I mean, much comedy today is actually still conditioned by the way Dickens wrote it in 19th century. And comedy writers and performance today owe huge debt to him. Other people who work in comedy think so too.
