Über den Autor

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) remains one of the most acclaimed British novelists and a preeminent storyteller of the Victorian era. His literary prowess gained momentum with the successful publication of 'Sketches by Boz, Illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People' (1836), a collection of essays and short pieces that hailed his keen observation of contemporary society and the quintessence of everyday life. Known for his rich characterization and a narrative style replete with social commentary, Dickens's works often reflect on the stark realities of poverty and injustice, shedding light on the dire existence of the working classes. His masterful use of humor, pathos, and satire not only entertained but also advocated for social reforms. His empathetic portrayals of ordinary people and their struggles in classics such as 'Oliver Twist,' 'David Copperfield,' and 'Great Expectations' have cemented his reputation as a literary genius and a compassionate social critic. Moreover, Dickens's contributions to the serial publication format underscore his innovative approach to reach a broad readership. His serialized novels fostered a profound communal reading experience in the 19th century, predating modern-day trends in episodic entertainment. His impact on literature is monumental, influencing countless authors and driving the evolution of the novel as an art form.
