Dickens in camp : is the tribute Bret Harte 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 the death of Dickens 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 finest expression of feeling brought forth by an event that spread sadness over the earth.
