About Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens is one of the most renowned authors in the English language. He wrote some of the most memorable novels ever published, including Great Expectations and A Tale of Two Cities. Born in Portsmouth, England, in 1812, Charles Dickens was sent to work at a blacking warehouse when his father was thrown into prison for debt. The experience formed a deep impression on his life and work, becoming an early source of inspiration for his writing.
Known as both a social critic and satirist, Dickens wrote fifteen novels as well as numerous short stories and essays throughout his lifetime. His books were filled with characters from all walks of life - from street urchins to wealthy aristocracy - who portrayed the harsh realities of life during Victorian England. He used humor to criticize British society’s flaws such as poverty, injustice and hypocrisy while also highlighting its strengths. Find out more about Charles Dickens.
