The History of Pendennis: His Fortunes and Misfortunes, His Friends and His Greatest Enemy
This novel is an unfolding panorama of scenes; of boyhood in one of the semi-barbarous schools of the period; of undergraduate life at "Oxbridge"; and of London in the 1830's and 1840's. Throughout, it bears the imprint of the author - at once sentimental and ironic, jovial and disenchanted.
