About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens is one of the most beloved authors in literary history. Born in England in 1812, he wrote some of the most iconic novels of all times, including David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and A Tale of Two Cities. His works were written during a time known as the Victorian Era, and his novels had an incredible influence on literature during that period.

Dickens was born into a middle-class family and after his father’s imprisonment for debt, he had to leave school and work in a factory at age 12. This experience provided him with knowledge about poverty and inequality which served as inspiration for many of his stories. He began writing stories while working as a journalist for newspapers and magazines before becoming a successful novelist. Some of his best works explored social injustice during the Victorian Era such as child labor abuses, exploitation by employers, inadequate housing conditions and more.
