What you need to know before your trail

The Pickwick Papers is Dickens’ first novel and widely regarded as one of the major classics of comic writing in English. Originally serialised in monthly installments, it quickly became a huge popular success.

The characters of Mr Pickwick, Sam Weller and the whole of the Pickwickian crew have now become household names and have now become classics in their own right.
