Über den Autor

Charles Dickens (1812–1870), an English writer and social critic, is often considered one of the greatest novelists to emerge from the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime and have not waned in acclaim, with many being considered classics of English literature. Dickens's novels are known for their social commentary, memorable characters, and intricate plots. He focused on the social and economic struggles of the time, using both wit and pathos to illustrate the lives of the poor and the injustices that beset them.

His literary output was prolific, including such esteemed works as 'Oliver Twist,' 'A Christmas Carol,' 'David Copperfield,' 'Great Expectations,' and 'A Tale of Two Cities.' Among his contributions is 'The Complete Christmas Books of Charles Dickens,' a collection that highlights his mastery of the novella form and blends social conscious with the celebration of the holiday spirit. 'A Christmas Carol,' the centerpiece of this collection, remains a seminal classic that has helped define modern notions of Christmas and its customs. Dickens's writing style is marked by his keen observation, sharp satire, and evocative use of language. His ability to create some of the most enduring characters in fiction – Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Oliver Twist – has solidified his place as a literary icon.
