About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was one of England's greatest writers. Best known for his classic serialized novels, such as Oliver Twist, A Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations, Dickens wrote about the London he lived in, the conditions of the poor, and the growing tensions between the classes. He achieved critical and popular international success in his lifetime and was honored with burial in Westminster Abbey.

From Our Editors

Having lost his father and his money, Nicholas Nickleby is just lucky enough to have his uncle find him a job. After being hired as a teacher at Dotheboys Hall, Nicholas soon discovers that the headmaster, a nasty old man named Wackford Squeers, is treating his pupils horribly. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Nicholas must decide if he wants to risk having his uncle cut off the support for his mother and sister or try to tough it out. Or he could try seeking his fortune somewhere else. Nicholas Nickleby is a classic from Charles Dickens.
