Mr F's Aunt


Play Fact Master on Fictional Characters - Dickens  (it's free)    



Mr F's Aunt
   appeared in the Dickens novel   
Little Dorrit
Companion to Flora Finching (Aunt to her late husband) and one of the funniest characters in Dickens. Dickens describes her as "an amazing little old woman, with a face like a staring wooden doll too cheap for expression, and a stiff yellow wig perched unevenly on the top of her head, as if the child who owned the doll had driven a tack through it anywhere, so that it only got fastened on". She has an amazing capacity for uttering totally non-sensical barbs which "being totally uncalled for by anything said by anybody, and traceable to no association of ideas, confounded and terrified the mind".
