Synopsis

MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT is beloved as Dickens' last great Picaresque novel, and is noted as the turning point between his early comic novels and the later sombre social critiques. Through the far-ranging escapades of young Martin, grandson of a rich but misanthropic old man, Dickens weaves a spellbinding story of adventure, intrigue and, eventually, redemption.

Charles Dickens, whose pen name was Boz, is regarded by many as one of the world`s greatest authors. His father, a navy clerk, was - like the fathers in many of Dickens` novels - constantly in and out of debtor`s prison, and Dickens was sent to work in a blacking factory at the age of twelve. His parents` failure to educate him was a source of great bitterness to him, and he reacted to this indifference by working incredibly hard for his entire life. Beginning as an office boy in a lawyer`s office, in time he became a parliamentary reporter and then a journalist. He wrote The Pickwick Papers at the age of twenty-four, and captured the popular imagination in a way no other novelist had done previously. He continued writing and reading his works in public until his sudden death in 1870.
