Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. He was born in 1812 in Portsmouth. When his father was sent to jail because of unsettled debt, Dickens had to leave school and get a job in a factory. Although he lacked formal education and never had a chance to finish his schooling, Dickens successfully edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and nonfiction articles, gave lectures and performed readings, and lobbied passionately for social reforms in general, and children’s rights in particular.
Dickens is believed to be the best novelist of the Victorian era, and he became very popular during his lifetime. His novels are still widely read and translated.
The story of The Chimes concerns a working class man who comes to believe that he is worthless and worries that working-class people are wicked by nature. On New Year’s Eve, some goblins show him visions of what will become of his loved ones if they are allowed to continue believing that they are worthless and wicked.
