Synopsis: "Of all my books, I like this the best." So said Charles Dickens of David Copperfield, his most autobiographical novel, which incorporates large portions of a memoir that he had earlier abandoned. This celebrated coming-of-age story marks Dickens's initial use of a first-person narrator and includes two of his most memorable characters: the villainous and cunning Uriah Heep and Mr. Micawber, young David's penniless but amiable friend, whom Dickens based on his own father. David Copperfield succeeds as a novel not simply because of the drama and picaresque adventures of its hero's childhood, but because of its powerful theme of innocent idealism threatened by brutal materialism, and its dazzling array of some of the most unforgettable characters in our literature. This edition features 39 full-page b&w line drawings by H. K. Browne, and is printed from the classic Gadshill Edition of the work of Dickens, incorporating a text carefully corrected by the author in 1867-68.

From the Publisher: Of all Dickens's novels, David Copperfield most fervently embraces the comic delights, the tender warmth, the tragic horrors of childhood. It is our classic tale of growing up, an enchanting story of a gently orphan discovering life and love in an indifferent adult world. Persecuted by his wrathful stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; deceived by his boyhood idol, the callous, charming Steerforth; driven into mortal combat with the sniveling clerk Uriah Heep; and hurled, pell-mell, into a blizzard of infatuation with the adorably dim-witted Dora, he survives the worst--and the best--with inimitable style, his bafflement turning to self-awareness and his unbridles young heart growing ever more disciplined and true. Of this richly autobiographical novel Dickens himself wrote, "like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favorite child. And his name is David Copperfield."
