Charles Dickens is often remembered for his novel, A Christmas Carol. And even though it is a very interesting novel, it wasn’t even his favorite! Some artists and authors claim that a work of art or a novel should be completely separated from its creator. Personally, I completely disagree. I think you can always find traces of psychology in a person’s work that are related to the things they experienced in their personal lives.

And so, without further ado, I encourage you to listen to this short and informative book. It will lay out some of the most important characters from his most famous novels and give you the background you need, to understand the motives and creativity behind them. Charles Dickens had a fascinating life, in an entirely different era and age in world history. To understand what and why he wrote what he did, it will be useful to see them in the light of his marriage, his financial hardships, his success, his children, his traumas, and his goals. Become acquainted with this genius writer and his true drive that led him to who he became to be.
