Charles Dickens

  1. 1. Made by Alejandro
  2. 2.  Charles John Huffam Dickens (Landport, Portsmouth, England, February 7, 1812 – Gads Hill Place, June 9, 1870) was an English writer. He created some of the best-known fictional characters in the world and is considered by many to be the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His books enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century, critics and scholars had recognized Dickens as a literary genius. His novels and short stories are still widely read today and are routinely adapted for the stage.Dickens has been praised by many of his fellow writers, from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell, G. K. Chesterton, and Tom Wolfe,[1] for his realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterizations, and social criticism. However, Oscar Wilde, Henry James and Virginia Woolf complained about its lack of psychological depth, its weak writing and its sentimentality.
  3. 3.  In 1849 he founded the weekly Household Words, where he published writings by little-known authors and in which he published two of his most excellent works: Bleak House (Bleak House, 1852-1853), and Hard Times (Hard Times, 1854). By that point he was already considered the great social novelist.
  4. 4.  Los papeles póstumos del Club Pickwick  Oliver Twist  A Christmas Carol  David Copperfield  Casa desolada  Tiempos difíciles  La pequeña Dorrit  Historia de dos ciudades  Grandes esperanzas  Barnaby Rudge  Nuestro común amigo  Nicholas Nickleby  La tienda de antigüedades  Dombey e hijo  Martin Chuzzlewit  El misterio de Edwin Drood
  5. 5.  A Christmas Carol is a fairly straightforward allegory built on an episodic narrative structure in which each of the main passages has a fixed, obvious symbolic meaning. The book is divided into five sections (Dickens labels them Staves in reference to the musical notation staff—a Christmas carol, after all, is a song), with each of the middle three Staves revolving around a visitation by one of the three famous spirits. The three spirit-guides, along with each of their tales, carry out a thematic function—the Ghost of Christmas Past, with his glowing head, represents memory; the Ghost of Christmas Present represents charity, empathy, and the Christmas spirit; and the reaper-like Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come represents the fear of death. Scrooge, with his Bah! Humbug! Attitude, embodies all that dampens Christmas spirit—greed, selfishness, indifference, and a lack of consideration for one’s fellow man.
