  • "A study of selfishness set forth in satire."

  • "Old Martin Chuzzlewit, tormented by the greed and selfishness of his family, effectively drives his grandson, young Martin, to undertake a voyage to America. It is a voyage which will have crucial consequences not only for young Martin, but also for his grandfather and his grandfather's servant, Mary Graham with whom young Martin is in love."@en
  • "CLASSIC FICTION (PRE C 1945). With an Introduction and Notes by Dr John Bowen, Department of English, University of Keele and illustrations by Hablot K. Browne (Phiz), "Martin Chuzzlewit" is Charles Dickens' comic masterpiece about which his biographer, Forster, noted that it marked a crucial phase in the author's development as he began to delve deeper into the 'springs of character'.Old Martin Chuzzlewit, tormented by the greed and selfishness of his family, effectively drives his grandson, young Martin, to undertake a voyage to America. It is a voyage which will have crucial consequences not only for young Martin, but also for his grandfather and his grandfather's servant, Mary Graham with whom young Martin is in love. The commercial swindle of the Anglo-Bengalee company and the fraudulent Eden Land Corporation have a topicality in our own time."

  • "Wealthy old Martin Chuzzlewit is surrounded by a host of grasping, unscrupulous relatives and suspects the family vices of selfishness and greed are already showing in his grandson. The younger Martin is therefore cast out upon the world to learn to fend for himself."
  • "At the center of Martin Chuzzlewit is Martin himself, very old, very rich, very much on his guard. What he suspects (with good reason) is that every one of his close and distant relations, now converging in droves on the country inn where they believe he is dying, will stop at nothing to become the inheritor of his great fortune. Having unjustly disinherited his grandson, young Martin, the old fellow now trusts no one but Mary Graham, the pretty girl hired as his companion. Though she has been made to understand she will not inherit a penny, she remains old Chuzzlewit's only ally. As the viperish relations and hangers-on close in on him, we meet some of Dickens's most marvelous characters - among them Mr. Pecksniff (whose name has entered the language as a synonym for ultimate hypocrisy and self-importance): the fabulously evil Jonas Chuzzlewit: the strutting reptile Tigg Montague: and the ridiculous, terrible, comical Sairey Gamp."

  • "Considered the last of Dickens' picaresque novels, Martin Chuzzlewit was released to the public in monthly installments. Sales of the monthly parts were disappointing, so Dickens changed the plot to send the title character to America. This satirical twist portrays America as a near wilderness, with pockets of civilization populated by deceptive, self-promoting hucksters."@en
  • "MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT IS CHARLES DICKEN'S COMIC MASTERPIECE AN OPINION SHARED BY DICKENS HIMSELF WHO WHEN HE BEGAN THE NOVEL NEVER HAD SO MUCH CONFIDENCE IN HIS POWERS AND WHEN HE HAD FINISHED IT WAS CONVINCED IT WAS IN A HUNDRED POINTS IMMEASURABLY THE BEST OF MY STORIES. A STUDY IN SELFISHNESS AND HYPOCRISY THE PLOT OF MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT MOVES FROM THE SUNNIEST FARCICALITY TO THE GRIMMEST REACHES OF CRIMINAL PSYCHOLOGY FROM THE DOMESTIC AND PAROCHIAL VILLAINY OF MR. PECKSNIFF TO THE PUBLIC VILLAINTY OF THE ANGLO BENGALEE ASSURANCE COMPANY. TH NOVEL IS PEOPLED WITH SUCH COMIC DICKENSIAN CHARACTERS AS MRS. GAMP, POLL SWEEDLEPIPE, MONTAGUE TIGGS, CHEVY SLYME AND THE CHUZZLEWIT BROTHERS AND AS P.N. FURBANK WRITES IN HIS INTRODUCTION DICKENS CERTAINLY NEVER WROTE IN HIGHER SPIRTS."@en

  • "Old Martin Chuzzlewit has a great fortune, but doesn't know to whom he should leave it, since he has had a falling out with his grandson, young Martin. A tangle of sly, grasping relatives coil about him. Before all can be decided, young Martin experiences a variety of wild episodes involving murder, mayhem, and a sojourn in the United States."
