Born on 7 February 1812, Charles Dickens was no stranger to the harsh reality of Victorian Britain. When he was twelve years old, he was sent to work in a shoe-polish factory, while his father was imprisoned for debt. Dickens's critical opinion of a number of the government institutions of his time, such as the English political, legal and financial institutions, and the prison system, is evident in his characteristically satirical portrait of Victorian society. Dickens enjoyed his first commercial success with The Pickwick Papers in 1836, swiftly followed by the serialization of Oliver Twist a year later. By the publication of The Old Curiosity Shop in 1841, Dickens was internationally famous. Little Dorrit was first published between 1855 and 1857 in monthly instalments, to great public delight. Dickens died in 1870, a greatly respected and much-loved author. His novels, many now adapted for TV and film, continue to entertain readers all over the world.
