About Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic.
Charles Dickens, a prolific writer of the working class, started to achieve fame in the late 1830s. His first successful novel, The Pickwick Papers, was published periodically in installments. This new style of publishing a novel allowed Dickens to both capture the attention of his audience and adapt his work based on their reactions. Dickens work was often about poorer citizens, which was unusual at the time. Some of Dickens' most famous work includes David Copperfield, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, and A Tale of Two Cities.
