Simply Dickens explores the world of Charles Dickens, whose passionate and colorful life was of a piece with his beloved and wildly popular novels.

Oliver Twist. A Christmas Carol. David Copperfield. Bleak House. A Tale of Two Cities. Great Expectations. The novels of Charles Dickens (1812-1870) read like a "Who's Who" of canonical works. Yet, less well known is the fact that Dickens himself was something of a created character, a larger-than-life figure who lived through his art and pursued his many passions with a theatrical zeal that could have belonged to one of his famous protagonists.

Largely self-taught, with little formal education, Dickens was catapulted to fame at the age of 24 with the publication of The Pickwick Papers in 1836. For the next 30 years, he wrote a prodigious number of novels, short stories, essays and other works, while simultaneously campaigning for a variety of social reforms. As Simply Dickenscolorfully describes, in life and in art, Dickens threw himself into everything he undertook--from taking on the personalities of his characters as he wrote, to pursuing such causes as children's rights and universal education.

While some authors have depicted Dickens as a tormented soul or cruel misogynist who compromised his work by pandering to a wide audience, Simply Dickensconvincingly shows him as a purposeful, supremely talented, and versatile personality, whose popular appeal was central to his achievement.
