About the Author
Charles Dickens's early childhood was happy until his father was imprisoned for debt. The 12 - year - old Dickens then began working ten - hour days in a boot - blacking factory pasting labels on the jars of thick polish. The shocking conditions of the factory made a profound impression on him. His anger at his situation and at the conditions endured by working - class people became major themes in his fiction.
