Dickens's Gentlemen. Dickens did not describe gentlemen in the way that gentlemen describe gentlemen. He described them in the way in which he described waiters, or railway guards, or men drawing with chalk on the pavement. He described them, in short (and this we may freely concede), from the outside, as he des- cribed any other oddity or special trade. The things that are really odd about the upper class he saw with startling promptitude and penetration, and if the English upper class does not see these odd things in itself, it is not because they are not there, but because we are all blind to our oddities it is for the same reason that tramps do not feel dirty, or that niggers do not feel black.
