Synopsis: The Cricket on the Hearth is a novella published in 1845. One of Dickens's Christmas books, it is a story about relationships and how they are affected by such emotions as love and egotism. It centers on John and his young wife Dot, whom he suspects of having an affair. A cricket, believed to be a symbol of good luck, works as a cementing factor between the couple.
About the Author: Charles Dickens's early childhood was happy until his father was imprisoned for debt. The 12-year-old Dickens then began working ten-hour days in a boot-blacking factory pasting labels on the jars of thick polish. The shocking conditions of the factory made a profound impression on him. His anger at his situation and at the conditions endured by working-class people became major themes in his fiction.
