About Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens is one of the most beloved English authors in history. His works, including classics such as Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities are renowned world-wide.
Born in 1812, Dickens had a difficult childhood; his father was sent to debtor's prison when he was 12 years old. As a result, Dickens' early education was interrupted and he had to take on various jobs to support his family. This hardship inspired many of his writings which have become timelessly popular with readers from all walks of life.
Throughout his career, Dickens wrote 15 novels that have been translated into more than 50 languages around the world and adapted for stage performance as well as films and television series. Find out more about Charles Dickens.
