Charles Dickens used the pen name Boz early in his career, and his first publication was the short story collection Sketches By Boz (1836)… Oliver Twist was the basis for the stage musical Oliver!; the show won the Tony Award for best musical in 1963, and a 1968 movie version (with Jack Wild as the Artful Dodger) won the Academy Award for best picture… Charles Dickens married the former Catherine Hogarth in 1836. They had 10 children, but their marriage was often tense, and they separated in 1858… He was buried in Poet’s Corner in Westminster Abbey, near Geoffrey Chaucer and other fellow writers.
