Synopsis

Charles John Huffam Dickens was the most popular English writer of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature's most iconic novels and characters. Many of his works, with their recurrent concern for social reform, first appeared in magazines in serialised form, a popular format at the time. Unlike other authors who completed entire novels before serialisation, Dickens often created the episodes as they were being serialised. The practice lent his stories a particular rhythm, punctuated by cliffhangers to keep the public looking forward to the next instalment. The continuing popularity of his novels and short stories is such that they have never gone out of print.
