Great Expectations

David Copperfield is a novel by Charles Dickens, first published as a novel in 1850. Like most of his works, it originally appeared in serial form a year earlier. Many elements within the novel follow events in Dickens' own life, and it is probably the most autobiographical of all of his novels. In the preface to the 1867 Charles Dickens edition, he wrote,

" many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child. And his name is David Copperfield."
