David Copperfield




'Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show'

This is the novel Dickens regarded as his 'favourite child' and is considered his most autobiographical. As David recounts his experience from childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist, Dickens draws openly and revealingly on his own life. Among the gloriously vivid cast of characters are Rosa Dartle, Dora, Steerforth, and the 'umble Uriah Heep, along with Mr Micawber, a portrait of Dickens's own father, evoking a mixture of love, nostalgia and guilt.
