Google pays tribute to Charles Dickens on his 200th birthday, 7 February 2012, with a good Google Doodle. Charles Dickens (Charles John Huffam Dickens) was an English novelist, generally considered the greatest of the Victorian period. Dickens enjoyed a wider popularity and fame than had any previous author during his lifetime, and he remains popular, having been responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic novels and characters.
Many of his writings were originally published serially, in monthly installments, a format of publication which Dickens himself helped popularize. Unlike other authors who completed novels before serialisation, Dickens often created the episodes as they were being serialised. The practice lent his stories a particular rhythm, punctuated by Cliffhangers to keep the public looking forward to the next installment.
