What are 3 novels that Charles Dickens wrote

A Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens was born in a little house in Landport, Portsea, England, on February 7, 1812. The second of eight children, he grew up in a family frequently beset by financial insecurity. At age eleven, Dickens was taken out of school and sent to work in London backing warehouse, where his job was to paste labels on bottles for six shillings a week. His father John Dickens, was a warmhearted but improvident man. When he was condemned the Marshela Prison for unpaid debts, he unwisely agreed that Charles should stay in lodgings and continue working while the rest of the family joined him in jail. This three-month separation caused Charles much pain; his experiences as a child alone in a huge city cold, isolated with barely enough to eat haunted him for the rest of his life.

When the family fortunes improved, Charles went back to school, after which he became an office boy, a freelance reporter and finally an author. With Pickwick Papers (1836-7) he achieved immediate fame; in a few years he was easily the post popular and respected writer of his time. It has been estimated that one out of every ten persons in Victorian England was a Dickens reader. Oliver Twist (1837), Nicholas Nickleby (1838-9) and The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41) were huge successes. Martin Chuzzlewit (1843-4) was less so, but Dickens followed it with his unforgettable, A Christmas Carol (1843), Bleak House (1852-3), Hard Times (1854) and Little Dorrit (1855-7) reveal his deepening concern for the injustices of the British Society. A Tale of Two Cities (1859), Great Expectations (1860-1) and Our Mutual Friend (1864-5) complete his major works.

Dickens s marriage to Catherine Hoggarth produced ten children but ended in separation in 1858. In that year he began a series of exhausting public readings; his health gradually declined. After putting in a full day s work at his home at Gads Hill, Kent on June 8, 1870, Dickens suffered a stroke, and he died the following day.

The Dickens classic in a new guise

Scrooge is the name of the man who doesn't want anything to do with Christmas. His life is exhausted in calculating the account balance, he is the embodied puritanical-capitalist spirit of England - and Charles Dickens awakens an older, pre-Reformation world for the reader; one in which one celebrated exuberantly and "irrationally", in which one knew other things than the balance sheet.

That is why his Christmas story has become a modern classic. Because with Christmas something new comes along every year, an interruption in operations. In the mixture of eternal London fog and contemporary industrial fumes, Dickens lets a light shine that came into the world with the birth of the Savior. Perhaps all Dickens novels have something of a heartwarming Christmas fairy tale because they follow an idea of ​​justice that at times may seem naive to us. P. J. Lynch illustrated the book with a variety of formats and bold perspectives.

There is only one point where you have to limit the enthusiasm: Children under the age of twelve are likely to be overwhelmed by a story in which Hamlet's father, the stock exchange and British wills appear. Of course, a reader can cover up these passages - but everything has its time, and in place of excessive educational hustle and bustle (is it not for its part of a present-day capitalist, success-addicted spirit, which is delegated to the young?), Which even the very little ones with the canon wants to load, a realistic assessment of the child's receptivity should occur.
