This book is one of Charles Dickens’ historical works. This is a work where fact, myth and legend are braided into a reasonably understandable history of England. Starting with William the Conquerer to William and Mary, this book is a truly expose of not only how they got into power but how they either remained in power or were overthrown.

本书讲述了从公元前50年到公元1689年、维多利亚女王登基之间的英国史,包括亚瑟王、百年战争、都铎王朝、血腥玛丽、伊丽莎白一世、亨利八世等重要时代和人物的兴衰。本书虽为历史书,但狄更斯使用了更为风趣、更具故事性的文学写作手法,诙谐幽默的风格和讽刺口吻贯穿全文。通过讲述历代君王的沉浮,作者也表达了一种世事难料,繁华落尽,一切终将归为尘土的超凡心境,引导读者思考人生的真谛。

A Child's History of England is a book by Charles Dickens. It first appeared in serial form in Household Words, running from January 25, 1851 to December 10, 1853.

查尔斯·狄更斯(1812年2月7日—1870年6月9日),19世纪英国批判现实主义小说家。狄更斯特别注意描写生活在英国社会底层的“小人物”的生活遭遇,深刻地反映了当时英国复杂的社会现实,为英国批判现实主义文学的开拓和发展做出了卓越的贡献。他的作品至今依然盛行,对英国文学发展起到了深远的影响。主要作品《匹克威克外传》《雾都孤儿》 《老古玩店》《艰难时世》《我们共同的朋友》《双城记》等。

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.

IF you look at a Map of the World, you will see, in the left-hand upper corner of the Eastern Hemisphere, two Islands lying in the sea. They are England and Scotland, and Ireland. England and Scotland form the greater part of these Islands. Ireland is the next in size. The little neighbouring islands, which are so small upon the Map as to be mere dots, are chiefly little bits of Scotland,-broken off, I dare say, in the course of a great length of time, by the power of the restless water.
