About Chales Dickens (1812 – 1870)

Chales Dickens began his literary career as a journalist. He published a series of sketches under the pseudonym ‘Boz’. In April 1836,he married Catherine Hogarth, daughter of George Hogarth, his editor. This was the time when Pickwick papers, were published bringing him immense popularity.

Dickens’ life has been of rags to riches. Born in 1812 in Portsmouth, he had to be withdrawn from school because his father was imprisoned for bad debt. Later, he worked in a factory in appalling conditions, loneliness and despair. After three years, he was returned to school, but the experience was never forgotten and became fictionalized in two of his better-known novels David Copperfield and Great Expectations.

A writer of inexhaustible energy, he was also a theatre enthusiast, wrote plays and performed. He also lectured against slavery in the United States and toured extensively.

He was estranged from his wife in 1858, after the birth of their tenth child, maintained relations with his mistress, the actress Ellen Ternan and died a stroke in 1870
