The personal history and experience of David Copperfield the Younger by Charles Dickens ( Book )

Dickens's favorite of all his novels, David Copperfield is the story of a boy who loses both parents at an early age, and who escapes the torture of working for his pitiless stepfather to make something of himself and, with any luck, find true happiness. David Copperfield features anunforgettable gallery of characters, including David's cruel stepfather Mr. Murdstone, the unctuous Uriah Heep, the amiable Mr. Micawber, whom Dickens based on his father, and Dora Spenglow, whom David marries and calls his "child-wife." Written in the first person, David Copperfield is perhaps the most autobiographical of Dickens's fictions. - Publisher
