Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Copperfield is the story of a young man's adventures on his journey from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist. Among the gloriously vivid cast of characters he encounters are his tyrannical stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble yet treacherous Uriah Heep; frivolous, enchanting Dora; and the magnificently impecunious Micawber, one of literature's great comic creations. In David Copperfieldthe novel he described as his "favorite child"Dickens drew revealingly on his own experiences to create one of his most exuberant and enduringly popular works, filled with tragedy and comedy in equal measure.

Synopsis:

David Copperfield was Dickens's favourite child and in the book Dickens revealed a lot of himself, particularly his early life. But, the introduction to this book, offers the the argument that Dickens fashioned himself anew in what he wrote.

Gold Gato, February 6, 2015 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Okay. Every time I finish another Dickens novel, I claim it to be my most favourite Dickens. But this time I really mean it...Copperfield takes the brass ring. Fantastic.

Peggotty and her buttons bursting off her clothing so that Davy the child remembers being able to find a trail back to his mother's cottage. Poor Mrs. Copperfield, so slight and so unprepared for Mr. Murdstone and his sister. Those horrible Murdstones with their metallic names, metallic outlooks, and metallic bags.

"What is before you, is a fight with the world; and the sooner you begin it, the better."

You're evil, Mr. Murdstone. And you sound like the French 'merde' because that's what you are! Mr. Barkis..."Barkis is willing". Mr. Peggotty and that boathouse on the beach. Good-natured Ham. Always hopeful Mr. Micawber. Evil Uriah Heep with those slimy hands. The uppity Steerforths. Cruel Creakle. Befuddled, kite-flying Mr. Dick. And best of all, Miss Betsey Trotwood. What a character! Her constant fights with the trespassing donkeys, her fervent belief that every dwelling in London would burn to the ground every night, her dressing down of the Murdstones, her practical attitude toward adversity.

Dickens rules.
