Charles Dickens

David Copperfield

The Personal History of David Copperfield

Penguin Classics

€ 11.95

?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?

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 brilliant, but ultimately unworthy school-friend Steerforth; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; his nemesis, the eternally humble 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 ?favourite 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 re-edited text of the first volume publication of 1850, and includes updated suggestions for further reading, a revised chronology and expanded notes. In his new introduction, Jeremy Tambling discusses the novel?s autobiographical elements, and its central themes of memory and identity.
