Time is the key to everything in life. It shows that a fictional story can come from anyone, no matter what age they are or what time period they come from. It also shows that there is a big difference in the works coming from an author of the victorian era and works coming from an author of the Modern era. Proof of this are the lives of both Victorian author, Charles Dickens, and Modern writer, Cassandra Clare.
Charles Dickens, who was an English writer and social critic, was born on February 7, 1812 in Portsmouth, England. He was considered the one of the best novelist during his time period and still is to this day. Even in the Modern time his books are deemed great Classics. His career commenced when he became a freelance reporter that covered two major London newspapers. Under the pen name ‘Boz’, he started writing sketches to newspapers and later published them in a book titled Sketches By Boz. His career grew bigger as he published more newspaper sketches in The Posthumous of the Pickwick Club.
