Wynn Jacobson-Galán has been chosen the winner of the 2015 Robert Fellman Memorial Scholarship Prize for his essay titled “Gasping Light in a Relentless Storm”. In his essay, Mr. Jacobson-Galán explores Dickens’s descriptions of weather and atmosphere and how they relate to the relationships and action in chapter 58 of the novel Bleak House.
The Robert Fellman Memorial Scholarship Prize is awarded to a WPI undergraduate student for the best essay written about the life or work of the author Charles Dickens. The scholarship was established in the memory of the noted Dickensian Robert Fellman, who bequeathed his Charles Dickens collection to WPI in 1995.
Mr. Jacobson-Galán has been invited to present the essay at the next meeting of the Worcester chapter of the Charles Dickens Fellowship on Dickens’s birthday (February 7), and will receive a cash prize of $100.
