Mrs. Varden and Miggs

Mrs. Varden and Miggs

 

No one portrays “the help” as hilariously as Charles Dickens. Miggs is the maid of the Varden household who takes up Mrs. Varden's cause against her amiable husband, the locksmith Gabriel Varden. Miggs was “slender and shrewish, of a rather uncomfortable figure.”

Hablot K. Browne. “Mrs. Varden and Miggs.” London: Chapman and Hall, 1848.
