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 Copperfield—the 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.

  • This edition uses the text of the first book edition of 1850
  • Includes updated suggestions for further reading, a revised chronology, and expanded notes
  • introduction discusses the novel's autobiographical elements and its central themes of memory and identity

Kristen M, March 2, 2010 (view all comments by Kristen M)
Much of the value of David Copperfield is in the well-written and diverse characters. Each of the characters has something to add to the story which is why David, in starting the book, uses the words that he does -- that he may or may not be the hero of his own story. This book is often overlooked because of the simple title and the prejudice against Dickens but it is really a fantastic story.
