“The Seven Poor Travelers” is a classic Dickens Christmas story full of love, loss, regret, and reuniting. The story begins by relating the hardships the English were enduring at the time of the writing and tells of a dear soul who had endowed an inn for poor travelers to give room and board to destitute visitors for one night. Dickens ironically points out that the travelers got about 1/30th of the value, while the management and lawyers of the trust got the other 29/30ths.

After a Christmas Eve feast, the narrator tells a story about Richard Doubledick, saved by an officer friend, who became his friend for life until his death at Waterloo. Richard later met the French officer who killed his friend and used forgiveness to get over it, which lead to them and their children becoming lifelong friends. This is a classic story about generations of salvation and friendship. “The Seven Poor Travelers” is a wonderful introduction to Dickens for students who wish to dabble first before taking on his longer novels.

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
