Charles Dickens is considered to be one of the greatest novelists of 19th Century in England.
His novels provide a vivid description of life in nineteenth-century England, and tell wonderfully engaging stories that are full of memorable characters. Many of the people in his books have exaggerated characteristics, often being either extremely benevolent or extremely unpleasant, and some of his most famous works are ‘morality tales’ in which good people end up being rewarded and bad people punished. All his stories make the reader desperate to know what happens next, and during his lifetime most of his novels came out in separate weekly or monthly parts, so people had to wait patiently for the next instalment.
