Charles Dickens Profile Picture

Generally regarded as one of the giants of English literature, Charles Dickens enjoyed extensive popularity during his lifetime and his books continue to be widely read. Born in 1812 in England, Dickens did factory work as a child and had little formal education. While working as a reporter, Dickens published his first stories and sketches under the pen name Boz. Dickens' first novel, The Pickwick Papers, published in monthly installments ending in 1837, was hugely popular. Following that success, Dickens became a full-time novelist, producing fifteen novels, many published in weekly or monthly installments. He also wrote novellas, nonfiction articles, and hundreds of short stories. Dickens toured widely through Europe and America, presenting lectures and readings from his novels and stories. A Victorian ‘rock star', Dickens is also the author of A Tale of Two Cities, perhaps the bestselling novel of all time. A favorite of theatrical producers and filmmakers, Dickens' works have been adapted hundreds of times for film and theatre. A Christmas Carol is one of the best-known novellas of all time, and is produced annually in thousands of theatres worldwide. Among the more frequently adapted are David Copperfield, Oliver Twist (the basis for the musical Oliver!), and Great Expectations. Dickens died in 1870.
