Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
Book DescriptionCharles Dickens's first published work, "The Pickwick Papers" was an instant success that captured the public imagination with its colourful characters and farcical plot. This "Penguin Classics" edition of Charles Dickens's is edited with notes and an introduction by Mark Wormald. Few first novels have created as much popular excitement as "The Pickwick Papers" - a comic masterpiece that catapulted its twenty-four-year-old author to immediate fame. Readers were captivated by the adventures of the poet Snodgrass, the lover Tupman, the sportsman Winkle and, above all, by that quintessentially English Quixote, Mr Pickwick, and his cockney Sancho Panza, Sam Weller. From the hallowed turf of Dingley Dell Cricket Club to the unholy fracas of the Eatanswill election, via the Fleet debtors' prison, characters and incidents spring to life from Dickens's pen, to form an enduringly popular work of ebullient humour and literary invention. This edition is based on the first volume edition of 1837, and includes the original illustrations. In his introduction, Mark Wormald discusses the genesis of "The Pickwick Papers" and the emergence of its central characters. Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including "Oliver Twist", "Great Expectations", "A Tale of Two Cities", "David Copperfield" and "The Pickwick Papers", have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you enjoyed "The Pickwick Papers", you might like Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and "Other Christmas Writings", also available in "Penguin Classics". "Dickens sees human beings with the most intense vividness...Consequently his greatest success is "The Pickwick Papers"." (George Orwell). "One of my life's greatest tragedies is to have already read "Pickwick Papers" - I can't go back and read it for the first time." (Fernando Pessoa).
