Charles Dickens

2012  marks the bicentenary of Charles Dickens’s birth. He is one of the greatest English writers of the Victorian period.

Our students had to read Great Expectations, one of his most famous books. He was a prolific writer.

Many of his works have been made into films: Oliver Twist, Bleak House, Scrooge, David Copperfield, etc

Dickens believed that enriching people’s life with knowledge and enjoyment of the arts was key to building a fair society and creating opportunities.  I agree with him.
