pubOne.info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. Comment les pickwickiens firent et cultiverent la connaissance d'une couple d'agreables jeunes gens, appartenant a une des professions liberales; comment ils folatrerent sur la glace; et comment se termina leur visite. -Eh bien! Sam, il gele toujours?- dit M. Pickwick a son domestique favori, comme celui-ci entrait dans sa chambre le matin du jour de Noel, pour lui appreter l'eau chaude necessaire. -L'eau du pot a eau n'est plus qu'un masque de glace, monsieur. Une rude saison, Sam! Beau temps pour ceux qui sont bien vetus, monsieur, comme disait l'ours blanc en s'exercant a patiner. Je descendrai dans un quart d'heure, Sam, reprit M. Pickwick, en denouant son bonnet de nuit. Tres-bien, monsieur, vous trouverez en bas une couple de carabins. Une couple de quoi? s'ecria M. Pickwick en s'asseyant sur son lit. Une couple de carabins, monsieur. Qu'est-ce que c'est qu'un carabin? demanda M. Pickwick, incertain si c'etait un animal vivant ou quelque comestible. Comment! vous ne savez pas ce que c'est qu'un carabin, monsieur.

About the author (2010)

Charles Dickens, perhaps the best British novelist of the Victorian era, was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England on February 7, 1812. His happy early childhood was interrupted when his father was sent to debtors' prison, and young Dickens had to go to work in a factory at age twelve. Later, he took jobs as an office boy and journalist before publishing essays and stories in the 1830s. His first novel, The Pickwick Papers, made him a famous and popular author at the age of twenty-five. Subsequent works were published serially in periodicals and cemented his reputation as a master of colorful characterization, and as a harsh critic of social evils and corrupt institutions. His many books include Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Great Expectations, Little Dorrit, A Christmas Carol, and A Tale of Two Cities. Dickens married Catherine Hogarth in 1836, and the couple had nine children before separating in 1858 when he began a long affair with Ellen Ternan, a young actress. Despite the scandal, Dickens remained a public figure, appearing often to read his fiction. He died in 1870, leaving his final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, unfinished.
