Dickens in Camp Is the Tribute Bret Hart Paid to the Memory of the Great English Novelist, and Many People Consider it the Californian's Masterpiece in Verse. Springing from a Deep Admiration for the Works of Dickens, Which Had Exercised a Profound Influence over Bret Harte's Childhood, It was Written Spontaneously, a Few Hours after the News of Dickens' Death Had Reached San Francisco. At the Time When the Whole English-Speaking World Was Offering Homage to the Dead Master, This Short Poem, So Impassioned & Sincere, Came from Far-Off California, and by Universal Consent Has Been Proclaimed the FinestExpression of Feeling Brought Forth by an Event That Spread Sadness over the Earth.
