Dickens: Charles John Huffam aka Boz

dickens
Born: 7 February 1812 in Portsmouth, England
Died: 9 June 1870 in Higham, Kent, England

 

‘Boz’ was the pseudonym under which Dickens was first published in 1833. Oliver Twist was his first novel which was published as a serial in monthly instalments. Dickens’ novels expose the conditions of mid-19 Century (Victorian) living for the poor and the working class. The three books named below are probably the easiest to read. Don’t be frightened by the language – the sentences are complex as was the style at the time – instead just let the words flow through your mind creating the pictures Dickens is painting for you.
Quotations
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
