About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens is one of the most renowned authors in English literature. Born in Portsmouth, England, on February 7th 1812, Charles John Huffam Dickens was the second of eight children and came from a lower-middle class family. By the age of twelve his father had been imprisoned for debt and Charles began to work long hours as a factory worker to help support his family. Despite these harsh conditions he managed to become well educated through self-study and later worked as a freelance journalist.

In 1836 he published his first novel The Pickwick Papers which skyrocketed him into fame as an author. This was quickly followed by further successes such as Oliver Twist, David Copperfield and A Christmas Carol which earned him recognition for his works depicting Victorian society. His novels are known for their social commentary on poverty and crime that were so prevalent during the 19th century period in Britain. Find out more about Charles Dickens.
