Meanwhile, Dickens had fallen in love with Maria Beadnell, a frivolous young girl whose father  objected to his daughter's being courted by a young reporter from a lower middle-class background.  Nothing came of this relationship, but it probably intensified Dickens' efforts to make something of  himself. In 1832, he began working as a parliamentary reporter for two London newspapers, and two  years later, he joined a new paper, the  Morning Chronicle , where he was asked to write a series of  sketches about London life. This request resulted in  Sketches by Boz , which appeared in  installments that were later, in 1836, published in book form. Dickens' career as an author was  begun. This led to an offer to write a monthly newspaper series about a group of humorous English  clubmen. These pieces became  The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
