David Copperfield

 
9780001388154: David Copperfield

In this novel, Dickens describes one boy growing up in a world which is by turns magical, fearful and grimly realistic. In a book which is part autobiographical, the novelist transmutes his life-experience into a series of comic and sentimental adventures.

From the Back Cover:

'David Copperfield' was based partly on Dickens’ own childhood and is perhaps most famous for two of its principal characters – the villainous Uriah Heep and the friendly but penniless Mr Micawber.

On his return from a happy holiday, David finds his mother has married a cold tyrant, Edward Murdstone. David is packed off to a harsh school and when his mother dies he is left completely at the mercy of his stepfather.

This wonderful reading by the distinguished actor, Paul Schofield, follows David Copperfield from childhood to maturity while keeping the atmosphere of event and character that gives Dickens his charm.

About the Author:

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced ‘Oliver Twist’,’ the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870 he was buried in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
