Charles Dickens (1812-1870)
This giant of English literature is known for his many immortal works including Oliver Twist, Pickwick Papers, Nicholas Nickleby, A Christmas Carol, Bleak house, David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations. Dickens was popular on both sides of the Atlantic, and he spent considerable time abroad in the United States, Switzerland, and Italy. In addition to his novels, Dickens' prodigious literary output included letters, pamphlets, plays, and short stories. He also delivered speeches, conducted private theatrical productions, and ran several popular magazines. Only 58 years old at his death, Dickens is buried in Westminster Abbey.
