9780099540854: Martin Chuzzlewit (Vintage Classics Promo 103)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SIMON CALLOW

Wealthy old Martin Chuzzlewit is surrounded by a host of grasping, unscrupulous relatives and suspects the family vices of selfishness and greed are already showing in his grandson. The younger Martin is therefore cast out upon the world to learn to fend for himself. Apprenticed to the oily hypocrite Peckniff, he meets both the sweet-tempered Tom Pinch and the irrepressible Mark Tapley, with whom he sets forth to America to find his fortune. Dickens created some of his most gleefully repulsive and enduring characters in this tale of corruption and virtue, murder and unrequited love.

Review:

"A novel that British readers love, and American readers love to hate...the American scenes are among the most powerful things Dickens ever did in fiction" ( Guardian)

"Peckniff, the arch villain of Martin Chuzzlewit , is in some ways the archetypal hypocrite and yet he's constantly surprising you...vivid detail" (David Lodge Time Out)

"One of my favourite characters in English literature is the redoubtable Mark Tapley - a curious hybrid of Jeeves and Pollyanna who inhabits the pages of Dickens's great novel, Martin Chuzzlewit." (Michael Simkins Daily Telegraph)

"Like all Dickens' novels it manages to combine social justice with humour" (Author Nicholas Rhea)

"After leaving school, I sought refuge from the perils of office life by reading under my desk or on park benches during the lunch hour. Dickens was my preferred means of escape" (Jeremy Lewis Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

Martin Chuzzlewit is a comic masterpiece which courted controversy on publication with its scathing portrayal of nineteenth-century America
