Autorenporträt
Charles Dickens (1812-1870) wuchs selbst in ärmlichen Verhältnissen in Portsmouth und London auf. Bereits mit zehn Jahren musste er die Schule abbrechen um als Hilfsarbeiter den Lebensunterhalt der Familie zu bestreiten. Diese Erfahrungen haben Dickens' Werke maßgeblich beeinflusst: er hat die Sorgen und Nöte der kleinen Leute in die Literatur eingeführt und harsche Kritik an den sozialen Missständen seiner Zeit geübt und kann so als Begründer des sozialen Romans bezeichnet werden.
