The Invisible Woman

Charles Dickens, the author of classical pieces Oliver Twist or David Copperfield. A man for whom most have a respect for his contribution to literature. Nevertheless, every human has more dimensions as somebody said, and so does Dickens.

One of his is a young girl named Nelly for whom he deserted his family – his wife and ten children. Given the days they lived in, society was not accepting of such arangments. Nelly became an inspiration for several of Dickens´ characters – but destined to remain an invisible muse.
