      In he divorced his wife Catherine, who had borne him ten children. During the s his social criticism became more radical and his comedy more savage: novels like "David Copperfield" (), "A Tale of Two Cities" () and "Great Expectations" () only increased his fame and respect. Dickens knew firsthand the poverty and pain his characters endured, including the scandal of a failed marriage. Going beyond standard narrative biography, A. N. Wilson brilliantly revisits the wellspring of Dickens’s vast and wild imagination, to reveal at long last why his novels captured the hearts of nineteenth century readers—and why.

      The Pickwick Papers, published when Dickens was only twenty-five, was hugely popular, and Dickens became a literary celebrity after its publication.

      Harry Dickens lived the longest of all the Dickens children. He died in after being hit by a car, as a result of his stubborn habit of stepping out onto the street with his walking stick upraised in order to warn approaching drivers, without waiting for them to stop or pass by. The children in his novels represent the real children of the actual world with actual experience and a tragic background – they experience poverty, orphanage, neglect and deprivation of education. They are a reflection of Dickens‟s own childhood experiences – he could well understand the pain of oppression.
