About Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens is one of the most renowned and beloved authors in history. His works are timeless classics that have been read, studied, and adapted for generations. He was born on February 7, 1812, in Portsmouth, England, and lived until June 9, 1870. Dickens had a hardscrabble life growing up as his father was thrown into a debtors' prison when Dickens was twelve years old. Forced to work in a boot-blackening factory at such a young age left an indelible mark on the young writer, who would later use these experiences as fodder for many of his literary works.
In addition to being known for his numerous novels, such as Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, A Tale of Two Cities, and David Copperfield, Dickens was also known for creating some of the most memorable characters in literary history.
