Über den Autor

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic who is considered one of the greatest novelists of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime and have retained their stature as classics. Known for his acute observation of society and unyielding exploration of social issues, Dickens's writing is marked by his characteristic wit, irony, and keen eye for detail. While 'The Selected Murder Mysteries' is not one of his standard recognitions, Dickens's ability to weave suspense into his storytelling is evident in his novels such as 'Oliver Twist,' where crime and mystery heavily influence the plot, and 'Bleak House,' which includes elements of detective fiction. His literary style often intertwined comedic elements with biting social criticism and an empathetic portrayal of the lives of the poor and oppressed. Dickens's influence on literature is profound, with many of his books, such as 'A Tale of Two Cities,' 'Great Expectations,' and 'A Christmas Carol,' becoming mandatory reading in various educational curriculums. He had a knack for creating memorable characters and settings that have seamlessly entered the cultural lexicon. Dickens's role in the development of the serial novel format and his thematic focus on the effects of industrialization, class struggle, and the legal system have cemented him as a towering figure in English literature.
