Charles Dickens was an English author who lived in the period 1812 – 1870. He is regarded as one of the best and most influential authors of the Victorian era as he provided a portrait of the underclass and the poor conditions that people lived in in this period. This led to social awareness and furthered change. Charles Dickens’ style was a vivid combination of fantasy and realism, personal life experience and fiction, and because of the way he conveyed his ideas, his literature appealed to both the rich and the poor. Some of his best known works are 'David Copperfield', 'A Christmas Carol', 'Oliver Twist' and many more. His popularity remains strong today and it may be due to the fact that 'amid all the variety of 'readings', those of Mr. Charles Dickens stand alone' as 'The Times' wrote in 1868.
