Charles Dickens (February 7, 1812 – June 9, 1870) was an English writer of the Victorian period.

Background

Dickens was born in Portsmouth, England. After his father was thrown into debtors' prison, a young Charles left school to work in a factory. Thus, he received little formal schooling but nevertheless went on to become one of the most popular and influential writers of all time. Over his lifetime, Dickens wrote 15 novels and 5 novellas, along with hundreds of other publications. He died in 1870, at 58 years of age, due to a stroke.

Notes

  • His name, along with the title of one of his novels, Bleak House, can be seen on a Vault 101 blackboard.
  • He is mentioned on a plaque at the Old Corner Bookstore.
  • He, and the title of his second novel, Oliver Twist, are mentioned in one of the jokes Codsworth or Buddy can tell the Sole Survivor.[1]
