Product description

Humorous, dramatic, ironic and tender, "David Copperfield" has always been one of Dickens' most popular novels. From his boyhood at the knee of his nurse Peggotty, to the cruelties of Salem House Academy and his youthful adoration of Dora Splendow, David beings to learn about life, the world, and the heart. His path to maturity is filled with memorable characters, the Micawbers, Uriah Heep, Steerforth and many more. Told as 'autobiography' "David Copperfield" draws deeply on Dickens' own life and was his own 'favourite child' among his books.

Author information

Charles Dickens was born in Portsmouth in 1812. At twelve, he was sent to work, after his father was imprisoned for debt; the experiences from this time always haunted him. After a spell as a parliamentary reporter Dickens began writing novels. Published in serial form, his work grew rapidly in popularity beginning with The Pickwick Papers. After Barnaby Rudge (1841), Dickens visited America. He returned disillusioned and his work became more serious and radical. His last novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, was never completed and he died in 1870.
