It is impossible to overstate the importance of British novelist CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) not only to literature in the English language, but to Western civilization on the whole. He is arguably the first fiction writer to have become an international celebrity. He popularized episodic fiction and the cliffhanger, which had a profound influence on the development of film and television. He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge, from Miss Havisham to Uriah Heep-have become not merely iconic, but mythic. But it was his stirring portraits of ordinary people-not the upper classes or the aristocracy-and his fervent cries for social, moral, and legal justice for the working poor, and in particular for poor children, in the grim early decades of the Industrial Revolution that powerfully impacted social concerns well into the 20th century. Without Charles Dickens, we may never have seen the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Upton Sinclair, or even Bob Dylan. Here, in 30 beautiful volumes-complete with all the original illustrations-is every published word written by one of the most important writers ever. The essential collector's set will delight anyone who cherishes English literature...and who takes pleasure in constantly rediscovering its joys. This volume contains Part II of The Pickwick Papers, Dickens's first novel, which was serialized from April 1836 to November 1837 in standalone installments. The tale of gentleman adventurer Samuel Pickwick, Esquire, and his travels to odd locales outside London, it is notable for some of Dickens's most comic characters and most amusing prose.

The Pickwick Papers was Dickens' first published novel and the first ever publishing phenomenon with illegal copies, theatrical performances and merchandise. It follows the travels of Mr Pickwick and the Pickwick Club through the English countryside, and is made up of Dickens' usual array of exaggerated, comic characters. The various adventures and encounters are loosely related, suiting the serial format in which the novel was first published.

The Posthumous Papers Of The Pickwick Club - BY CHARLES DICKENS - PREFACE - IT was observed, in the Preface to the original Edition of the Post- Jumous Papers oi the Pickwick Club, that they were designcd for the introduction of diverting characters and incidents that no ingenuity of plot was attempted, or even at that time considered very feasible by the author in connexion with the desultory mode of publication adopted and that the machinery of the Club, proving cumbrous in the management, was gradually abandoned as the u70rl progressed. Although, on one of these points, experience and study afterwards taught me something, and I could perliaps wish now that these chapters were strung together on a stronger thread of general interest, still, what they are they wcre designed to be. I have Seen various accounts of the origin of these Pickwick Papers, wliich have, at all events, possessed-for me-the charm of perfect novelty. As I may infer, from the occasional..........
