Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.
David Paroissien is Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts. He is editor of the Dickens Quarterly and author of a number of books on Dickens.
It was a dissapointment to receive the book. I later found out that Dickens never finished the book, so I feel cheated. I do not recall Amazon pointed that out..?Published 2 months ago by Amilla Betiina Jensen
I loved the idea of this book but found it to be a lengthier read than it could have been. Had some of the descriptions been condensed, I feel the story would have flowed better.Published 4 months ago by Can't Get Rite
This is a deep and sordid tale of love and hate and indifference, of drugs and desire and (just possibly) murder. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Kurt A. Johnson
Forced to read this for my college english class. Much better than I expected. Yes, you will be frustrated that there is no ending, but the journey itself will give you chills. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Keith Yong
Dickens is a favorite author of mine. I can now add this to my list of books that I have read by Charles Dickens. I only wish he could have completed this one.Published 11 months ago by Kathleen R. Anderson
