Charles Dickens has remained one of the most enduringly popular British authors for almost two centuries. Find out how Dickens’s humble origins and unflinching observational insights into everyday life in London led him to write classics such as Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol, and learn about nineteenth-century living conditions, clothing, food, work, and education. Text boxes with quotations from period letters and literature will encourage discussion among readers. This book is an excellent introduction to the field of cultural history and can be read on its own or as an accompaniment to any Dickens novel. Back matter includes endnotes, a list of texts and Web sites for further research, and an index.
