Dickensian in a quote

"In the past, I used to counter any such notions by asking myself: 'Would you really want President Hattersley?' I now find that possibility rather cheers me up. With his chubby, Dickensian features and his knowledge of T.H. Green and other harmless leftish political classics, Hattersley might not be such a bad thing after all."

"My dad is kind of a rascal, like in a Dickensian sense. He just goes from career to career."
