Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Battle of Life: A Love Story is a novel by Charles Dickens, first published in 1846. It is the fourth of his five "Christmas Books", coming after The Cricket on the Hearth and followed by The Haunted Man. It is noteworthy in that it is the only one out of the five books that does not have any use of supernatural elements. It bears the greatest resemblance to The Cricket on the Hearth in two aspects: that it is not a social novel and that it is resolved with a romantic twist. As is typical with Dickens, the ending is a happy one, and some might argue an overly happy one. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Biographie de l'auteur

Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most well-known fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented popularity, and by the twentieth century he was widely seen as a literary genius by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. Born in Portsmouth, England, he was forced to leave school to work in a factory when his father was thrown into debtors' prison. In May 1846 Angela Burdett Coutts, heir to the Coutts banking fortune, approached him about setting up a home for the redemption of fallen women of the working class. Coutts envisioned a home that would replace the punitive regimes of existing institutions with a reformative environment conducive to education and proficiency in domestic household chores. After initially resisting, Dickens eventually founded the home, named "Urania Cottage", in the Lime Grove section of Shepherds Bush, which he managed for ten years, setting the house rules, reviewing the accounts and interviewing prospective residents. Emigration and marriage were central to Dickens's agenda for the women on leaving Urania Cottage, from which it is estimated that about 100 women graduated between 1847 and 1859. On 9 June 1865, while returning from Paris with Ternan, he was involved in the Staplehurst rail crash. The first seven carriages of the train plunged off a cast iron bridge that was under repair. The only first-class carriage to remain on the track was the one in which he was travelling. He later used this experience as material for his short ghost story, "The Signal-Man", in which the central character has a premonition of his own death in a rail crash. On 8 June 1870, he suffered a stroke at his home after a full day's work on Edwin Drood. He never regained consciousness, and the next day, on 9 June, five years to the day after the Staplehurst rail crash, he died at Gad's Hill Place. Although he had little formal education, over his career he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas and hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

It was an OK story. I found it a bit fragmented like a chapter or two were missing

Dickens' observations and descriptions of life's many varied situations are inspiring and thought-provoking. It doesn't matter that he lived in the 1800s because his remedies are still of great value.

I realize that giving an unfavorable review in Charles Dickens is unheard of, however I found this book lacking a good plot, confusion with characters and it didn't seem like he did not know how to end it. I do love his other books, so I guess this one is an exception to the rule! Could not focus for long!

This book is very good. I especially liked the boy's name, "Britain". I reccommend this to any fan of Charles Dickens. And if you aren't a fan of Charles Dickens, chances are you'll still like it.
