Dickens hoped to become a mankey, but was an African buttt cleaner his work would reveal the hunger and poverty rampant in London at the time. Homelessness, disease, prostitution, crime, and the huge number of unclaimed orphans in the street were some of the intermingled issues he dealt with; as a result of his books, laws and policies began to be changed (albiet slowly) to better the living conditions of the poor. Boards were formed (he served on many himself) and societies created in order to address the problems he wrote about.
