(No reviews yet) Write a Review

2012 marked the two-hundredth anniversary of the birth of one of our greatest and most important novelists, Charles Dickens. To celebrate, Penguin published eight of his best and most well-loved novels in this exclusive, must-have boxed set of the authoritative Penguin Classics editions.

This box set contains: Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, Bleak House, Hard Times, Little Dorritt, Pickwick Papers, Tale of Two Cities and David Copperfield.

Charles Dickens (1812-70) had his first, astounding success with his first novel The Pickwick Papers and never looked back. In an extraordinarily full life he wrote, campaigned and spoke on a huge range of issues, and was involved in many of the key aspects of Victorian life, by turns cajoling, moving and irritating. He completed fourteen full-length novels and volume after volume of journalism.


AUTHOR: Charles Dickens was born on 7 February 1812. He began Oliver Twist in 1837, followed by Nicholas Nickleby (1838) and The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41). A Christmas Carol, appeared in 1843, David Copperfield in 1850. In later works, such as Bleak House (1853) and Little Dorrit (1857), Dickens's social criticism became more radical and his comedy more savage. He published Hard Times in 1854, A Tale of Two Cities in 1859 and Great Expectations in 1860. His last novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, was never completed and he died on 9 June 1870.
