A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
Ebenezer Scrooge, Miss Havisham, Pip, the Artful Dodger, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield—these beloved characters, along with so many others, are all the creation of Charles Dickens. An English writer during the 1800s, Dickens created some of the best-known fictional characters in literature (and even film). Widely considered the greatest novelist of the Victorian era in the 19th century, Charles Dickens wrote books that are still staples for children and adults around the world.
Dickens enjoyed literary success during his lifetime—when his very first work, The Pickwick Papers, was published in 1836 as a serial, the writer’s career took off. His novels continued to be published in monthly or weekly installments for fans, pioneering the act of publishing narrative fiction as serials during the Victorian era. Every work continued to garner increasing success for Dickens, like A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, and A Tale of Two Cities. By the end of his life, Charles Dickens was already hailed as a literary genius by many.
