Famous English Writer- Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens was born in 1812. He became the main leader of English realism. He grew up in a very poor family. His parents had problems with the police, because they owed money for accommodation. His father was a small official and he was arrested and put to the jail for debtors. Later on, also his mother was arrested and so he had to earn money for living in the age of twelve. He was working in shoe shop. Because of his childhood he was usually writing about children without home or family. He usually derived the stories from his own experience. His famous books where a child is the main hero are Oliver Twist and David Copperfield. His first book was the Chronicle of the Pickwick Club. In this book he criticised jails, poorhouses and social rates. This book brought him popularity and he became famous.
