A character analysis of the protagonist in david copperfield
David Copperfield is well known as one representative work by Charles Dickens. The greatest novelist in the Victorian period depicted a broad picture of the society of his times by telling the uncommon life of his boy hero, David Copperfield and heroines. It is the most autobiographical of all his books. In writing, Dickens threw into this novel deep feelings and much of his own experience in his younger days. By David’s history and experience, Dickens in some way retrospected and drew a conclusion to his life and expressed his life attitude and moral ideal. Furthermore his novel also disclosed the faulty mask of capitalist society and remarkably reflected the negative damage to the marriage, family and society caused by money. It is safe to say that David Copperfield is one of the most excellent characters among all Dickens created. The thesis undertakes to have a detailed study of the characteristics of David Copperfield through the analysis of the influence of the people around him and heronries and make a preliminary explanation to it. The work will be done along the development of David Copperfield, from his childhood to his adulthood as well as his marriage with dora and agnnes. The analysis of the characteristics of David Copperfield as well as dora and agnes will provide us a chance to see the features of the capitalist society and give us some inspiration about the life.
