Overview

The life of Charles Dickens by John Forster

Writing with passion about the pleasures and pitfalls that he experienced and dreamt up in Victorian England, Charles Dickens remains one of the most beloved novelists of all time. Apart from the Bible story of the birth of Jesus Christ, there is probably no better-known tale of Christmas than Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. A devout Christian, Dickens began writing Christmas tales in The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Cluband by the 1840s he had written a slew of novellas known collectively as the Christmas Books.

Throughout all of his work, one gets a sense of the struggles he faced growing up in a humble household. His masterpieces, Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, and A Tale of Two Cities, exemplify his magnificent talent and his understanding of the human condition. The Life of Charles Dickens explores Dickens' life and loves.
