Charles Dickens is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. A British writer and a social critic, Charles Dickens was considered a literary genius who created some of the world’s best-known fictional characters.
Dickens had to take care of the family at a very early age, due to his father’s imprisonment. This led to him feeling abandoned and betrayed and his impoverished childhood later reflected through his first novel — Oliver Twist.
Amongst the many novels that he authored, David Copperfield, was considered the first of its kind, as never before anybody had written a novel that followed a character through his daily life. Though it was not considered as his best work, it was his personal favourite. Many of his major works have been adapted for films, with some, like A Christmas Carol, repackaged in various forms over the years.
This collection includes some of his most memorable stories, including A Christmas Tree, The Trial for Murder, A Walk in a Workhouse and The Poor Traveler. These stories will give you a glimpse into his literary accomplishment and a taste of his unparalleled style.
