The Personal History of David Copperfield is the eighth novel by Charles Dickens, originally serialised from 1849, and published as a book on completion in 1850. It was Dickens' favourite among his novels, in part because it was the most autobiographical.
David Copperfield's progress from youth to manhood is, in some episodes, a thinly veiled fictionalization of Dickens' own life, but it also incorporates some of his most vividly imagined characters, such as Mr Micawber and Uriah Heep.
