About the Book

Charles Dickens wrote a book titled Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit, often referred to as Martin Chuzzlewit and regarded as the final of his picaresque works. The first serialization took place between 1842 and 1844. Dickens admitted to a friend that he thought it was his best piece to date while also admitting that, based on the sales of the monthly installments, it was one of his least well-liked books. Famous characters from this book include Pecksniff and Mrs. Gamp. Martin Chuzzlewit, like almost all of Dickens's books, was initially released in monthly portions. Dickens revised the plot to send the title character to America since early sales of the monthly sections were lower than those of earlier works. In part as an unsuccessful effort to persuade US publishers to abide by international copyright regulations, Dickens traveled to America in 1842. He mocked the nation as being full of self-promotional hucksters who were eager to buy land without having seen it first. He clarified in a speech that it was satire and not a fair portrayal of the country in later editions and after his second visit to the greatly transformed US 24 years later.

About Author

Charles Dickens

English author and social commentator Charles Dickens lived from 7 February 1812 to 9 June 1870. He is credited with creating some of the most well-known fictional characters in history and is regarded by many as the best writer of the Victorian era. His books gained an extraordinary level of popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century, academics and critics had recognized his literary excellence. Many people read his novels and short story collections today. Dickens, a native of Portsmouth, quit school at the age of 12 to work at a factory that blackened boots while his father was imprisoned for debt. After three years, he returned to school before beginning his writing career as a journalist. Dickens spent 20 years editing a weekly journal, produced hundreds of short stories and non-fiction pieces, 15 novels, five novellas, numerous lectures, and readings, was a prolific letter writer, and actively promoted social reforms like education reform, children's rights, and other issues. Dickens' writing career took off with the serial publication of The Pickwick Papers in 1836, a publishing hit that inspired Pickwick products and spin-offs in large part due to the introduction of the character Sam Weller in the fourth episode.
