The Charles Dickens Collection -

Now you can read twelve of Charles Dickens' most famous works in The Charles Dickens Collection. Included are:

• A Christmas Carol • Little Dorrit
• A Tale of Two Cities • Nicholas Nickleby
• Bleak House • Oliver Twist
• David Copperfield • The Mystery of Edwin Drood
• Great Expectations • The Old Curiosity Shop
• Hard Times • The Pickwick Papers

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 in Portsmouth, Hampshire and spent his early years in London. When he was twelve, his father was imprisoned for debt at the infamous Marshalsea Debtor's Prison, and Charles was sent to work for ten hours a day in a boot-blacking factory earning six shillings a week with which he supported his family. His father's release several years later did nothing to dampen the anguish of this experience, and Dickens resolved to expose the conditions under which working-class people lived.

After a stint as a law clerk, Dickens turned to writing, producing "The Pickwick Papers" in 1836, "Oliver Twist" in 1837, "Nicholas Nickleby" in 1838, "The Old Curiosity Shop" in 1840, "A Christmas Carol" in 1843, "David Copperfield" in 1849, "Bleak House" in 1852, "Hard Times" in 1854, "Little Dorrit" in 1855, "A Tale of Two Cities" in 1859, "Great Expectations" in 1860 and "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" in 1870. These works contain some of the most famous characters in all English literature: Ebenezer Scrooge, Fagin, Charles Darnay, Oliver Twist and Miss Havisham. Even more remarkable, most of these novels were written in monthly or weekly installments appearing in journals such as Master Humphrey's Clock and were only later reprinted in book form.

" 'Spirit,' said Scrooge, with an interest he had never felt before, 'tell me if Tiny Tim will live.'
'I see a vacant seat,' replied the Ghost, 'in the poor chimney-corner, and a crutch
without an owner, carefully preserved.' "

A Christmas Carol
Charles Dickens

In 1870, the strain of giving public readings of his works led to ill health, and Dickens requested that he be buried without fanfare in a small cemetery in Rochester. However, upon his death, a grieving nation insisted that he be buried in Westminster Abbey, where his grave in its Poet's Corner overflows to this day with the flowers of his admirers.
