About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens is one of the most beloved and well-known writers of all time. He was born in 1812 in Portsmouth, England, and is best known for his novels such as Oliver Twist, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, David Copperfield and A Christmas Carol. His works were so popular that some have been adapted into films and other media over the years.

Dickens had a tumultuous childhood due to his father's financial problems that ultimately led to him working in a factory at age 12. He started publishing short stories and articles under various pen names before he wrote his first novel Pickwick Papers in 1836. This publication helped launch him into literary stardom due to its success and popularity amongst readers. His works often contained complex characters who reflected Victorian society with themes about poverty and social injustice which resonated with audiences during this period.
