À douze ans, il colle des étiquettes sur des boîtes de cirage dans un entrepôt sordide au bord de l. a. Tamise. À vingt-quatre, il publie Pickwick et devient le romancier le plus célèbre de son temps. Malgré cette ascension extraordinaire, Charles Dickens (1812-1870) n’oublia jamais "les temps difficiles" de sa jeunesse et lutta toute sa vie contre l’injustice. Il fut l. a. determine de proue de l’Angleterre victorienne, mais aussi son imprécateur : un homme complexe, fortress et fragile, humble et orgueilleux, un révolutionnaire horrifié par los angeles violence, un romancier populaire aux audaces inouïes. Travailleur infatigable, il laisse une œuvre substantial où s’entremêlent ugly et tragédie, dérision et engagement, onirisme et recherche formelle. Il est le romancier par excellence, transmuant le réel, comme l’écrit Chesterton, en une "substance fluide et composée appelée : Dickens".
