Abstract:

"Disinherited by his misanthropic grandfather, Martin is thwarted in his desire to marry the young orphan Mary Graham. Instead he sets sail for America to seek his fortune, where disastrous experiences lie in wait to teach him some valuable lessons. The reformed hero provides a stark contrast to the evil Jonas Chuzzlewit, whose wicked deeds make him one of Dickens' blackest and most terrify villains. Peppered with such unforgettable Dickensian creations as arch-hypocrite Mr. Pecksniff and the grotesque Mrs. Gamp, Martin Chuzzlewit shows the author at this satirical best."--Container.
