From the Paper:

"The novel, Dombey and Son, by Charles Dickens, paints a particularly vivid picture of both the nature and the redemptive power of love. Throughout the novel's myriad twists of plot and turns of phrase, that mightiest of transforming influences is depicted--with singular literary skill and creative cunning, by a master of metaphor and king of characterization--as the only successful means of regenerating the dead and decaying spirit."
