About the Author

Charles Dickens, perhaps the best British novelist of the Victorian era, was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England on February 7, 1812. His happy early childhood was interrupted when his father was sent to debtors' prison, and young Dickens had to go to work in a factory at age twelve. Later, he show more took jobs as an office boy and journalist before publishing essays and stories in the 1830s. His first novel, The Pickwick Papers, made him a famous and popular author at the age of twenty-five. Subsequent works were published serially in periodicals and cemented his reputation as a master of colorful characterization, and as a harsh critic of social evils and corrupt institutions. His many books include Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Great Expectations, Little Dorrit, A Christmas Carol, and A Tale of Two Cities. Dickens married Catherine Hogarth in 1836, and the couple had nine children before separating in 1858 when he began a long affair with Ellen Ternan, a young actress. Despite the scandal, Dickens remained a public figure, appearing often to read his fiction. He died in 1870, leaving his final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, unfinished.

"The American one", in which Dickens put his 1842 visit to America to use. His stinging disillusionment with what he found ("Dickens had a traumatising experience in America," argues Prof Meckier. "He became less radical, less optimistic, and he downgraded his view of human nature.") has an analogue in Trumpian America and its horrified resisters of the current day, an evergreen and renewable circumstance no doubt, human nature being what it is. Extending his incomparable sarcastic satire from class-ridden England to what he saw as the amoral selfishness of America, his American section is easily the best and most memorable thing about the novel, producing prophetic passages such as
[T]he greater part of it may be summed up in one word - dollars. All their cares, hopes, joys, affections, virtues, and associations, seemed to be melted down into dollars... Men were weighed by their dollars, measures gauged by their dollars; life was auctioneered, appraised, put up, and knocked down for its dollars. The next respectable thing to dollars was any venture having their attainment for its end. The more of that worthless ballast, honour and fair dealing, which any man cast overboard from the ship of his Good Name and Good Intent, the more ample stowage room he had for dollars. Make commerce one huge lie and mighty theft. Deface the banner of the nation for an idle rag; pollute it star by star; and cut out stripe by stripe as from the arm of a degraded soldier. Do anything for dollars!
Dickens' theme in this novel is selfishness, and he extends its focus from the American nation to his English protagonists, and for the latter at least redemption is found in the two related persons of Martin Chuzzlewit. Rank moral hypocrisy is personified in the very Dickensian name of Pecksniff, and of course, being Dickens, he has his impossibly pure hearted and good characters, ironically here surnamed Pinch. The story is stretched out too far, as was the nature of his serialized novels, and the heroes live happily ever after, and the villians meet with bad ends, so however traumatized Dickens was by his visit to hypocritical and self-centered America, it didn't yet affect his novelistic denouements.

Well, neither the story nor the characters in this one are all that great. Nicholas is far less compelling than, say, David Copperfield, and his circumstances far less appalling than, say, Oliver Twist's. Really his situation never gets worse than moderately unappealing, and his character never rises above moderately interesting. It leaves him surely about the least memorable main character of a Dickens novel.

The primary villain, his uncle Ralph, is a proto-Scrooge, a heartless and scheming older man who cares only for making money. The novel makes an early feint towards him developing a twinge of conscience and complication as provoked by feeling for his neice Kate, but Dickens quickly abandons that alleyway in favor of keeping him simple and one-dimensional. His ultimate end doesn't ring true, and seems calculated for mass appeal popularity.

The novel does have some fun episodic sojourns away from the main storyline, reminiscent of Dickens' first novel The Pickwick Papers. The theater troupe Nicholas briefly becomes part of in the country, with its eye-rolling Infant Phenomenon, is an entertaining diversion, as is the ridiculous female-flattering spendthrift Mr. Mantilini. His downfall is the most comic moment and perhaps the accidental highlight.

And then there is the Dickens prose, clever and surprising and sardonic and entertaining and brilliant as ever. Even when his plot and characters disappoint, his writing makes the 900 pages worth reading. He zings the hypocritical:
When men are about to commit, or to sanction the commission of some injustice, it is not uncommon for them to express pity for the object either of that or some parallel proceeding, and to feel themselves, at the time, quite virtuous and moral, and immensely superior to those who express no pity at all. This is a kind of upholding of faith above works, and is very comfortable.
and the feel-good delusions society tells itself:
There are many pleasant fictions of the law in constant operation, but there is not one so pleasant or practically humorous as that which supposes every man to be of equal value in its impartial eye, and the benefits of all laws to be equally attainable by all men, without the smallest reference to the furniture of their pockets.
but my favorite passage could be this description of the apartment of Arthur Gride, Ralph Nickelby's fellow miser and conspirator, so illuminative of the space and of Gride:
No fireside couch was there, to invite repose and comfort. Elbow-chairs there were, but they looked uneasy in their minds, cocked their arms suspiciously and timidly, and kept upon their guard. Others were fantastically grim and gaunt, as having drawn themselves up to their utmost height, and put on their fiercest looks to stare all comers out of countenance. Others, again, knocked up against their neighbours, or leant for support against the wall - somewhat ostentatiously, as if to call all men to witness that they were not worth the taking. The dark square lumbering bedsteads seemed built for restless dreams; the musty hangings seemed to creep in scanty folds together, whispering among themselves, when rustled by the wind, their trembling knowledge of the tempting wares that lurked within the dark and tight-locked closets.
Absolutely brilliant, that.

Such a brilliant bloomin' profusion of memorable and entertaining characters, it's both gratifying and a shame that everyone's fate wraps up in the end like a didactic grade school lesson. Sure, I'm happy that Mr. and Mrs. Micawber found wealth and honor at last in Australia, but the worthy gentleman was such a joy as the loquacious sad sack as likely to find himself in debtor's prison as anywhere, and his wife as the determinedly deluded champion of her husband's industrious talents. And it's no less deserved that Uriah Heep is last seen in prison, but his writhing false 'umbleness is much more fun when provoking the earnest and sincere Master Copperfield to acts of physical violence.

The outdated notions of women's "lost virtue" are hard to take at this remove, though the transformation of Mr. Peggotty from genial fisherman and drinker to driven and heartbreaking father trying every desperate measure to rescue his lost Emily is touching.

The less said about the character of Dora, David's utterly simplistic and self-appellated "child-wife" who conveniently wastes away of some unnamed disorder and dies so that he can realize the error of his young undisciplined heart and end up with the angelic Agnes, the better, although learning that Dickens modeled Dora after his own apparently much-regretted wife does introduce some juicy and evil gossip into the lamentable storyline (if Mrs. Dickens did not heartily dislike her husband at the time of 'David Copperfield' publication, she certainly had cause after it!)

So the novel has some problems, sure, but damn, Dickens could write, and he could create such characters as to make any author jealous.
---

"David Copperfield is the absolutely typical Dickens novel; maybe Dickens, the hammiest of all great writers, loved it best because it was just so him. But its very centrality makes it easy to overlook or take for granted. Compared to the early work, its miscalculations seem less understandable, its moralizing less tolerable; shouldn't he have known better by this time? Compared to the late work, it seems too merrily "Dickensian."

I don't know, am I making heavy weather of this? Shouldn't it be enough to remind folks that this novel, and no other, is the one with Uriah Heep and Mr. Micawber and Mr. and Miss Murdstone and Aunt Betsey and Peggoty and Steerforth and Mr. Dick and Rosa Dartle? No writer since Shakespeare could have put together such a cast of scene-stealers - as well as such supposedly minor characters as the respectable Littimer, the willin' Barkis, the lone and lorn Mrs. Gummidge, the Punch-like Mr. Spenlow and the volatile Miss Mowcher."
- from David Gates's introduction in the Modern Library edition
