Synopsis

Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812 - 1870) created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognized him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.

Like that of the children in many of his novels, Dickens’ childhood was a difficult and unhappy one – his father, a navy clerk, was constantly in debt and was thrown in debtor’s prison and Dickens was sent to work in a blacking factory at the age of twelve. Most bitter for him was his parents’ failure to educate him. He reacted to this indifference by working hard, a lifelong characteristic.

Dickens's literary success began with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. Within a few years he had become an international literary celebrity, famous for his humor, satire, and keen observation of character and society. His novels, most published in monthly or weekly installments, pioneered the serial publication of narrative fiction, which became the dominant Victorian mode for novel publication.

Charles Dickens Six Pack is a two thousand page plus anthology presenting six of the best Dickens novels along with image galleries showcasing Dickens portraits, first edition covers and original illustrations.
