This is very interesting. I wonder if it has anything to do with the character types that feature in books today. It seems like the "heroes" now are always young and glamorized, nothing like the eccentrics and everyday people Dickens and Chekhov wrote about. Not that they didn't have their romanticized characters, either, but overall they wrote a more diverse cast of characters.
