“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”

― Charles Dickens

 

‘David Copperfield’ is often regarded as Charles Dickens best and most popular novel – even to English author Virginia Woolf who calls it ‘the most perfect of all the Dickens novels.’ According to Eckel,

“With many lovers of the author’s works David Copperfield ranks as the finest of his writings. With a book which gave to the world such characters as Betsy Trotwood, Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick. It would be strange if it had been otherwise.”
