Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens remains one of the greatest voices of British literature. He so clearly defined the social inequities of his time in such monumental works as "A Tale of Two Cities," "Great Expectations" and "A Christmas Carol."
Dickens was no stranger to personal strife. When his father was sent to debtor's prison, Dickens toiled as a child in a dye factory, all the while struggling with the symptoms of severe asthma.

He wasn't lucky enough to have fast-acting or control medications to help him manage his disease. His treatments were certainly of a much more primitive kind. How much do you understand about 19th century asthma care?
