Charles Dickens often wrote about the social problems of 19th-century England, such as child labor, poverty, and crime. By shedding a light on these issues through popular works of literature, he helped create change. Readers explore this connection between history, social issues, and literature as they examine the details of Dickens's life and literary career through engaging main text, fact-filled sidebars, graphic organizers, and historical images. Readers are also given a close look at one of Dickens's most famous works, Oliver Twist. They are encouraged to think critically about how his words may have changed the world.
