Charles Dickens

by Lucinda Dickens Hawksley

Biography / Autobiography

Charles Dickens Synopsis

The illustrated guide to Charles Dickens takes an intimate look at what he was like as a husband, a father, a friend and an employer; at his longing to be an actor, at his travels across North America, his year spent living in Italy and his great love of France. Alongside Dickens himself, readers will meet his fascinating family and his astonishing circle of friends - and will discover when and how life and real-life personalities were imitated in Dickens' art. The cast of characters in Charles Dickens embraces an incredible array of famous - and occasionally infamous - Victorians.
