Charles Dickens: David Copperfield

Uriah_Heep_et_david_(Harold_Copping)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.

Charles Dickens: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

By R. Seymour, via Wikipedia.The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, or The Pickwick Papers, was the first novel by Charles Dickens, originally serialised from 1836 to 1837, when it was published in book form.

Commissioned to accompany humorous pictures of country life by illustrator Robert Seymour, it was an instant success, remembered for some of Dickens' best-loved characters, such as the cockney manservant Sam Weller. It is nevertheless remains unique in employing a broad comic vein to which Dickens never fully returned.
