Abstract:

First published in serial form, "The Pickwick Papers" tells the story of Samuel Pickwick, a good natured elderly gentleman and president of the Pickwick Club. With three other members of the club, Pickwick travels around the English countryside, where he becomes caught up in a series of comic adventures, from romantic and legal misunderstandings. Although light in tone, the novel foreshadows the social concerns that would emerge in Dickens' later work.
