Charles Dickens :: GCSE English Literature Coursework
Charles Dickens Something about Charles Dickens and his ability to take his reader to incredulous places with his imaginative powers allows him the honor of being the around popular English novelist of the nineteenth century. Dickens has thrilled his readers for whiley years with his d deliver-to-earth stories about authentic people forced into real situations. Charles Dickens has the ability to tell his stories from individualised experiences. He fine-tuned his ability to tell his own story through the conduct of another character or cast of characters. Born on the evening of February 7, 1812, Charles Dickens was the second child of his parents, John and Elizabeth Dickens.. Although he was a solitudinarian child, Dickens was observant and good natured . Looking back on this hitch of his life, Dickens thought of it as the g onetime(a)en age (Carey 6). In the eldest novel that he wrote, The Pickwick Papers, Dickens tries to bring back the good old times as he reme mbers them with their picturesque nature. Gary Carey believes that this novel displays the happiness of naturalness and the playful spirit of the youth during the time of Dickenss youthful days (7). Overtaken by financial difficulties, the Dickens family was forced to move into a shabby suburbia of Camden Town. This move must have shown the family how good they had it back in Chatham. in that location Dickens was removed from school and forced to work degrading modest cables in an effort to help his struggling father put victuals on the table. Dickens was put to work in a blacken manufacturing plant among many rough and cruel employees, probably the worst job in town. Shortly after Dickens started working in the factory his father was thrown into jail for failure to pay his debts, only to be released three months later. This finale of time affected Dickens greatly as he went into a period of depression. He felt abandoned and ruined by this evil roller-coaster ride o f life he was on. From this time period come many of the major themes of his more popular novels. Perhaps the most popular of these novels is David Copperfield. In this novel Dickens depicts a young man who grows up in a very similar way to that of his own (Allen 28).
