About the Author

Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

It is amazing that in a book that was written to boost his falling sales, Dickens produces his most brilliant work, in spite of his complaining that he didn't have sufficient space to develop his characters. 'A Christmas Carol' is the only book in this collection that actually involves Christmas, although 'The Chimes' does involve New Year's Day. The books seem to steadily decrease in quality although they all extol the virtues of love, kindness, family and friends and offer classic 'Dickensian' characters. I also particularly enjoyed the original illustrations that are included in this volume.
