This tale of Paul Dombey, his son (also named Paul) and his daughter Florence was first published in installments, between 1846 and 1848. Though called Dombey and Son, the story is as much about Mr. Dombey's relationship with Florence, the damage done to it by Dombey's pursuit of worldly success and accomplishment, and their eventual reconciliation. Dombey and Son is one of Dickens' richest novels, with vividly drawn characters and biting social commentary.
