Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth where his father was a clerk in the navy pay office. The family moved to London in 1823, but their fortunes were severely impaired. Dickens was sent to work in a blacking-warehouse when his father was imprisoned for debt. Both experiences deeply affected the future novelist. In 1833, he began contributing stories to newspapers and magazines, and in 1836 started the serial publication of
Pickwick Papers. Thereafter, Dickens published his major novels over the course of the next twenty years, from
Nicholas Nickleby to
Little Dorrit. He also edited the journals
Household Words and
All the Year Round. Dickens died in June 1870.
