David Copperfield

David Copperfield is the novel Dickens regarded as his'favourite child' and is considered his most autobiographical. AsDavid recounts his experience from childhood to the discovery ofhis vocation as a successful novelist, Dickens draws openly andrevealingly on his own life. Among the gloriously vivid cast ofcharacters are David's tyrannical stepfather, Mr Murdstone; hisbrilliant, but ultimately unworthy, school-friend Steerforth; hisformidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble, yettreacherous Uriah Heep; frivolous, enchanting Dora; and themagnificently impecunious Micawber, one of literature's great comiccreations.
