Overview

Based in part on the author’s own life, David Copperfield is the epic story of a young man’s journey of self-discovery – from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to his vocation as a successful novelist. Among the memorable cast of characters he encounters along the way are his brutal stepfather, Mr Murdstone; bubbly Nurse Peggotty; his brilliant, but unworthy schoolmate Steerforth, his eccentric aunt, Betsy Trotwood, the scheming clerk Uriah Heep, the enchanting Dora and the magnificent Mr Macawber – a character much like Dickens’ own father. Full of tragedy and comedy in equal measure, David Copperfield remains one of the most enduring and popular of Dickens’ novels.
