    About “Charles Dickens”

    1. 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

    1. "The secret of this matter is, that it ain’t so much that a person goes into Society, as that Society goes into a person.”


    2. Strange tale although I suppose the lesson is clear. The "going into society" could only happen at that time if you were born into "society" I.e were of the appropriate bloodline or if you were sufficiently monied to mingle in "society". Circus people would not have fitted in, especially a dwarf. The dwarf's winnings however allow him to give it a go. Of course "easy come easy go". He is taken advantage of & rather predictably looses all & returns to the circus. The moral of the story wa [...]


    3. Another strange book. This is a story about a dwarf who belongs to the circus. One day, he happily wins a lottery that allows him to a prize of a large sum of money. He takes two other members of the circus with him only to discover, all too soon that his money did not last for as long as he liked.In a way a sad but true story of the ways of people taking adantage of their fellow men.


    4. This is the first story that I finished without any clue. (it could have been the second if I had enough patience to go through all 680 pages of Ulysses.)I have no idea what the story is about. Please tell me if anyone knows.


    5. Really have no clue what this was about and why it is called a Christmas story. Well, I've read it and can forget all about it.
