The Ultimate Charles Dickens Quiz

615x330_dickens.jpg

Charles Dickens - a writer so famous that a whole period of London's history is named after him. We believe that has yet to happen to Jeffrey Archer.

Born in relative poverty, his tough early years working in a factory shaped his life, and drove him to become arguably Britain's greatest novelist, as well as an ardent campaigner for education, children's right and social justice. And at the end of the day, if there were no Dickens, there would be no Muppet Christmas Carol, so we should all be grateful to him.

Test your knowledge of the man and his work with our quiz.
