Description of this Book

In David Copperfield (1849), once again, issues of class and the differences between public and private standards (represented in the corruption of the wealthy and brilliant Steerforth) are studied, and the power and exploitation of the industrial world are exposed and damned, Classic Dickensian characters here include Mr Murdstone, Copperfield's evil guardian and owner of the wine-bottling factory where David makes his living under appalling conditions; the snake-like Uriah Heap who's vanity leads him to cruelty; Mr Micawber, one of literature's funniest characters and the kind, generous Peggottys, representing all that is good, even in the face of adversity. Little Em'ly provides an ill-treated character with whom the reader can sympathise. This was Dicken's favourite novel.
