Charles Dickens World Masterpieces

Three of world renowned Dickens' lesser known novels: "Nickleby" is full of humour & grand comedy, especially provided by Mr. Crummles & his irrepressible theatrical company; aside from the wonderful humour, Dickens exposes & attacks schools & schoolmasters & their cruel treatment of students in Victorian England; "Hard Times" is a hard indictment of practices & philosophical justifications of mid-19th century industrialism in England & presents a remarkable picture of a mill town of the 1840's – 1850's & is based on Preston, England where Dickens researched conditions & gathered material for "Hard Times" in which the author makes his heartfelt pleas on behalf of those unable to speak for themselves; "A Christmas Carol" is one of the author's most beloved stories, popular immediately in 1843, & still loved world-wide; like "Hard Times", "A Christmas Carol" presents, in dramatic & heartfelt fashion, the social injustices & plight of the poor, attempting to alert the better off & wealthy to the social conditions below them; Dickens wrote "David Copperfield", "A Tale Of Two Cities", "The Pickwick Papers" and "Oliver Twist" . all perhaps better known but these three remarkable works included in this volume are superb enough to assure Dickens one of the highest places in world literature
