DICKENS REVISITED: David Copperfield

Considered by many to be one of the great masterpieces written by Charles Dickens, David Copperfield traces the adventures of the titular character as he develops from an impoverished childhood to adulthood. Written in an autobiographical format, the novel treats the themes of memory and identity while also exploring important social questions of the time such as the exploitation of children, marriage, emigration to Australia, and class conflict. We will read the Penguin edition of the work.
