Dickens is famous for the names he gave to his characters-- Uriaha heap, mr gradgrind and little doritt are a few examples. often theses names help us to visualize the person. does the name "bumble" help you visulize the beadle? describe bumble, and explain why dickens gave him this name.

Wouldn't this be reading or Literature? I think that Dickens gave him his name because he looks a bit chubby and is short. More like a bumble bee with a fat stomach. It is just a good guess and that is how i visulized him whem i read Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.
