ProNone

G.C.S.E. English Literature has a great deal to answer for. The classics we were forced to read for our exams in secondary school were often too boring, heavy going and weighted with long-winded descriptions. The endurance test we underwent has sadly put many of us reading classics and reading in...

“An autobiography that isn't!”

published 29/12/2005

ProSo many wonderful characters to relate to

ConsPerhaps overly flowery at times.

Back in September I figured that it was time to conduct my annual plunge into the world of Charles Dickens and a friend advised me that David Copperfield made a good read. So with many a long train ride ahead (I live in Cambridge and knew that I had a course down in Plymouth and my partner at the...

Prohuge social vistas

Consharsh portrayal of women.

The variety of social depictions in David Copperfiled makes it an extraordinary portrayal of Victorian life - from the harshest of schools to the most tender home, the dire work place, the elevated office job, the street girl and the cad, Dickens captures a moment of Victorian society with...

David Copperfield was a book that I was supposed to have studied for o level in school. I hated it I only read about 5 pages and I just could not stand it. After 26 years I decided to try again and I could not believe how wonderful it was. I think you have to be an adult or at least to have...

This novel was Dickens' own favourite. It includes a mixture of delightful and less charming characters who in true dickensian style both fascinate and enthral. Plots and sub plots keep the reader constantly interested and the contrasting pictures of hardship and affluence bring to life the...
