Charles Dickens' "David Copperfield", which originally appeared in serial format between May 1849 and November 1850, is considered as the most autobiographical of all his novels. A classic "Bildungsroman", i.e., a novel of self-cultivation, it is the story of its title character from childhood to maturity which chronicles the struggle between the emotional and moral aspects of his life. Central to the theme of the novel is the idea of "the disciplined heart". Dickens suggests that people basically fall into three categories: those who have one, those who don't, and those who seek to develop one. It is this development in David Copperfield that establishes the principal context of his relationships throughout the novel. Considered by many as one of Dickens' greatest works, "David Copperfield" remains as popular today as when it was first written.

Based on the author’s own tumultuous journey from boy to man, this epic traces young David’s progress from his mother’s sheltering arms to the miseries of boarding-school and sweatshop and the rewards of friendship, romance, and self-discovery in his vocation as a writer. A cherished favorite with generations of readers (starting with Dickens himself), this novel combines a compelling narrative with a memorable cast, from the brutal Mr. Murdstone to the exuberantly optimistic Mr. Micawber.
