Although Copperfield differs from his creator in many ways, Dickens uses many early personal experiences that had meant much to him -- his own period of work in a factory while his father was jailed, his schooling and readking, his passion for Maria Beadnell (a woman much like Dora Spenlow), and (more cursorily) his emergence from parliamentary reporting into successful novel writing.'"

The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foun- dation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices. From the Hardcover edition."@en

Dort verlebt er eine bedrückende Zeit und wird bereits als Zehnjähriger zur Fabrikarbeit gezwungen. Elend und Ausbeutung stehen im Zeitalter der blühenden Industrialisierung auf der Tagesordnung, und David kann sich den unerträglichen Bedingungen nur durch die Flucht zu seiner Tante Betsey entziehen. Obwohl diese ihn kaum kennt, nimmt sie ihn herzlich auf. Nach entbehrungsreicher Zeit scheint sich das Blatt zu wenden und der Junge kann eine gute Schule besuchen. Wie Dickens wird er später selbst Anwaltsgehilfe, Reporter und schliesslich erfolgreicher Schriftsteller. "David Copperfield" gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Kindheits- und Jugendromane der Weltliteratur. Er zeigt Dickens' überragendes Talent für die Darstellung von Stimmungen, Erlebnissen und Gefühlen seiner Figuren. Das 1849/1850 zunächst in Fortsetzungen erschienene Werk weist viele autobiografische Züge auf und gilt als Lieblingsroman des berühmten englischen Schriftstellers. Charles Dickens wurde am 7. Februar 1812 in Landport bei Portsea in England geboren. Nach einer harten Jugend begann er seine schriftstellerische Laufbahn mit Skizzen, die er unter dem Pseudonym Boz in Londoner Zeitungen und Magazinen veröffentlichte. Die .Pickwick Papers' machten ihn 1837 weltberühmt. All seine grossen Romane schrieb er in fieberhaftem Tempo. 1868 kaufte Dickens - er war inzwischen der gefeiertste Dichter seiner Zeit - Gadshill Place, von nun an sein ständiger Wohnsitz. Dort starb er am 9. Juni 1870 an einem Schlaganfall. Seine grössten Werke: Die Pickwickier (1837), Oliver Twist (1838), David Copperfield (1850), Harte Zeiten (1854), Grosse Erwartungen (1861)."

  • "David Copperfield (1849), written at a prosperous and content time in Dickens life, became the fictional account of his life story - a romantic autobiography charting the young man's evolution from his troubled formative years to an affluent and happy adulthood. Once again, issues of class and the differences between public and private standards (represented in the corruption of the wealthy and brilliant Steerforth) are studied, and the power and exploitation of the industrial world are exposed and damned, Classic Dickensian characters here include Mr Murdstone, Copperfield's evil guardian and owner of the wine-bottling factory where David makes his living under appalling conditions; the snake-like Uriah Heap who's vanity leads him to cruelty; Mr Micawber, one of literature's funniest characters and the kind, generous Peggottys, representing all that is good, even in the face of adversity. Little Em'ly provides an ill-treated character with whom the reader can sympathise. This was Dicken's favourite novel."@en

  • "An autobiographical novel whose hero, an orphan boy in nineteenth-century England, successfully overcomes an unhappy childhood."
  • "The personal history of David Copperfield."
  • "'I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child. And his name is DAVID COPPERFIELD,' wrote Dickens of what is the most personal, certainly one of the most popular, of all his novels. Dickens wrote the book after the completion of a fragment of autobiography recalling his employment as a child in a London warehouse, and in the first-person narrative, a new departure for him, realized marvellously the workings of memory. The embodiment of his boyhood experience in the novel involved a 'complicated interweaving of truth and fiction', at its most subtle in the portrait of his father as Mr Micawber, one of Dickens's greatest comic creations. Enjoying a humour that never becomes caricature, the reader shares David's affection for the eccentric Betsey Trotwood and her prot--eacute--;g--eacute--; Mr Dick, and smiles with the narrator at the trials he endures in his love for the delightfully silly Dora. Settings, (East Anglia, the London of the 1820s), people, and events are unified by their relationship to the story of Steerforth's treachery, which reaches its powerful climax in the storm scene. This edition, which has the accurate Clarendon text, includes Dickens's trial titles and working notes, and eight of the original illustrations by 'Phiz'."
  • "????????"????????Like so many fond parents I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child," wrote Charles Dickens. "And his name is David Copperfield."????????Of all of Dickens's novels, David Copperfield most closely reflects the events of his own life. The story of an abandoned waif who discovers life and love in an indifferent world, this classic tale of childhood is populated with a cast of eccentrics, innocents, and villains who number among the author's greatest creations.????????"David Copperfield is filled with characters of the most astonishing variety, vividness, and originality," noted Somerset Maugham. "They are not realistic and yet they abound with life. There never were such people as the Micawbers, Pegotty and Barkis, Traddles, Betsey Trotwood and Mr. Dick, Uriah Heep and his mother. They are fantastic inventions of Dickens's exultant imagination, but they have so much vigor, they are so consistent, they are presented with so much conviction, that you believe in them. They are extravagant, but not unreal, and when you have once to know them you can never quite forget them." T. S. Eliot agreed: "Dickens excelled in character; in the creation of characters of greater intensity than human beings." And Virginia Woolf concluded: "In David Copperfield, though char-acters swarm and life flows into every creek and cranny, some common feelings--youth, gaiety, hope--envelops the tumult, brings the scattered parts together, and invests the most perfect of all the Dickens novels with an atmosphere of beauty." The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foun-dation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.From the Hardcover edition."@en
