Happy Birthday Charles Dickens!



Charles Dickens
Feb. 7th 1812 - June 9th 1870

Born in Portsmouth, England to parents in constant debt, Charles John Huffman Dickens was inspired through life experiences to "bring about a change in the real world by drawing his readers' attention to the plight of the less fortunate."¹

With great works such as Little Dorrit, The Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations, among many others, Dickens is one of the most well-known authors of the Victorian age and a classic among literature standings.

I believe now would be the appropriate time to break out my Charles Dickens Collection from Barnes and Noble!
(sold at BN, Amazon and The Book Depository)

In honor of his birthday, I shall begin my Charles Dickens Challenge today with Oliver Twist. As this is a work that I have never fully read myself, (although I have seen a movie, as well as the musical Oliver!) I am looking forward to experiencing a truly Dickensian masterpiece!
