I thought we had something left before Palomar. What have we read? Ghostwritten, Wilhelm Meister, I Served the King of England, Dombey & Son. That's four, and Palomar was to the be the sixth. What am I forgetting?
I don't think the text of Dombey & Son answers your questions so clearly. I think we're left to speculate, and Guillermo's speculation seems about right. I don't think we can say anything more specific. But I was certainly nodding through much of the book.
I was never really keen on reading all of Dickens. If I read another, it will probably be Our Mutual Friend, which I know you all read here. Have you read A Tale of Two Cities? I'm under the impression that it's one of Dickens's worst novels, probably because Fadiman says so in TNLRP, but there do seem to be some dissenting opinions.
