I think that Callow, like many Dickensians (and non), looks too much as both the early Dickens and the comic Dickens side characters. I'd say that later Dickens (Eugene Wrayburn, Arthur Clennam, perhaps even Mrs. Clennam, etc) does show a more dynamic view of character.

Plus, I'm not as huge a fan of fluid characters (or Shakespeare, for that matter) as most mid-level analysis of lit seems to expect I should be. :-)
