Famous English Writer – Charles Dickens!!!

The most important thing in life is to stop saying ‘I wish’ and start saying ‘I will’ – one of the fantastic quotes of Charles Dickens…

Charles John Huffam Dickens was a Famous English Writer and Social Critic. He established some of the World's well-known fanciful characters and is witnessed by many as the tremendous novelist of the Victorian era. His works relished remarkable fame amid his lifetime, and by the 20th century critics and scholars had perceived him as a literary prodigy. His novels and short stories relish long lasting fame.

Dickens was born on 7th February 1812 at 1 Mile End Terrace, Land port in Port Sea Island - Portsmouth, the second of eight children of Elizabeth Dickens and John Dickens. His father was a clerk in the Navy Pay Office and was transitorily posted in the district. His father requested Christopher Huffam, rigger to His Majesty's Navy, gentleman, and head of an entrenched firm, to act as a patron to Charles Dickens. Huffam is the reflection to be the motivation for Dickens’s character, Paul Dombey, the proprietor of a shipping company in Dickens's novel Dombey and Son (1848).

Dickens has gone through another stroke at his home after a full day's work on Edwin Drood on 8th June 1870. He never wined back consciousness, and the very next day, 5 years after the Staple Hurst rail crash, at last he got expired at Gads Hill Place. Columnist Claire Tomalin has recommended Dickens was indeed in Peckham when he deteriorated the stroke, and his mistress Ellen Ternan and her maids had him taken back to Gad's Hill, so the society would not know the real truth about their intimate relationship.

Born in Portsmouth, Dickens dropped school to work in a factory, when his father was confined in a debtors' prison. Even with his inadequacy of explicit education, he altered a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, 5 novellas, 100s of short stories and non-fiction articles, expounded and implemented readings broadly was an inexhaustible letter writer, and crusaded passionately for children's rights, education, and other social amends.

Dickens's literary fame began with the 1836 serial broadcasting of The Pickwick Papers. In reach of few years, he had become a universal literary personality, recognized for his banter, sarcasm, and keen perception of character and pubic. His novels, most broadcasted in monthly or weekly episodes, colonized the serial broadcasting of historical fiction, which became the prevailing Victorian mode for novel broadcasting. Cliffhanger endings in his serial broadcastings kept bookworms in anxiety. The episodes format granted Dickens to appraise his audience's feeling, and he often altered his plot and character evolution based on such feedbacks. For instance, when his wife's podiatrist conveyed anguish at the way Miss Mowcher in David Copperfield seemed to echo her ailment, Dickens enhanced the character with positive lineaments. His plots were carefully build up, and he often meshes elements from topical crisis into his chronicles. Masses of the uneducated poor whacked in happiness to have each new monthly episode read to them, breach up and uplifting a new dashing of bookworms.
