Charles Dickens (1812 - 1870)
"He had a large, loving mind and the strongest sympathy with the poorer classes"
The son of a Naval Clerk, Charles Dickens had, in an often brutal age, an idyllic early childhood. Growing up in Chatham he spent much of his time outdoors relishing the beauty of the North Kent Marshes. Books by Charles Dickens often had characters and settings formed by his early life, with the landscape of his childhood later immortalised in his book Great Expectations.
At the heart of this collection is one of Charles Dickens's best-loved works: A Christmas Carol. This and his other seasonal novellas have become part of Christmas itself, reminding us of simple family pleasures and the value of goodwill.
