The Personal History of David Copperfield


One of Charles Dickens' most beloved works, David Copperfield follows the life of the eponymous young man from his unfortunate childhood to his adulthood as a successful novelist. The adventures and hardships David experiences color his upbringing, from dealing with an abusive stepfather, to the cruel life of a child factory worker, to finding his place in the world, among the friends and family he discovers. Along the way, Dickens introduces us to a colorful and unforgettable cast of characters, who inhabit this stark Victorian landscape.
