About “Charles Dickens

  • Charles Dickens

    Charles John Huffam Dickens 7 February 1812 9 June 1870 was an English writer and social critic He created some of the world s best known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors prison Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children s rights, education, and other social reforms.Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best known work of historical fiction Dickens s creative genius has been praised by fellow writers from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G K Chesterton for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters.On 8 June 1870, Dickens suffered another stroke at his home after a full day s work on Edwin Drood He never regained consciousness, and the next day, five years to the day after the Staplehurst rail crash, he died at Gad s Hill Place Contrary to his wish to be buried at Rochester Cathedral in an inexpensive, unostentatious, and strictly private manner, he was laid to rest in the Poets Corner of Westminster Abbey A printed epitaph circulated at the time of the funeral reads To the Memory of Charles Dickens England s most popular author who died at his residence, Higham, near Rochester, Kent, 9 June 1870, aged 58 years He was a sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed and by his death, one of England s greatest writers is lost to the world His last words were On the ground , in response to his sister in law Georgina s request that he lie down from

  • In most surveys Barnaby Rudge comes out as the least read of all Dickens s novels Yet his only other historical novel, A Tale of Two Cities , is one of his most popular His penultimate novel, it was written 18 years later, and has a very different tone with little humour But Dickens s classic wit, his irony and eye for the absurd are what many people love about his writing And Barnaby Rudge has these in abundance So it is all the puzzling that it is read so infrequently.The scenes where Gabriel [...]


  • This was the first of the two historical novels written by Dickens, but it is his least known work The action takes place in 1780, the time of the Gordon Riots where fervent Protestant mobs rampaged across London in anger at the new freedoms awarded to British Catholics There is the usual onslaught of Dickensian characters, the majority of whom are pure evill good things perverted to evil purposes, are worse than those which are naturally bad.I really enjoyed this romp, as there are churchyards [...]

  • Would take a week to review all of his work so I cheated and featured his complete works which I do own.Next to Oscar Wilde Dickens is my favourite author He magically paints pictures with words and creates unforgettable characters Even if many of his works are very long everyone should read some of the classic titles From The Old Curiosity Shop and A Tale of Two cities to David Copperfield and Great Expectations Masterpieces all


  • There is nothing I can say about Charles Dickens that could possibly be worthy All I can say is that he is held in great reverence by me I have been a huge fan of his works since I was a young teenager.
