Like many fond parents, wrote Charles Dickens, I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child. And his name is David Copperfield. First published in book form in November 1850, Dickens own favorite among his works is his most autobiographical novel, boasting a wealth of adventure and suspense as well as an unparalleled gallery of the author s most memorable characters including Mr Murdstone, David Copperfield's evil guardian and owner of the wine-bottling factory where David makes his living under appalling conditions, the snake-like Uriah Heap whose 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.
