David Copperfield is a novel written by Charles Dickens and originally published in 1850. With autobiographical overtones, it is considered one of Dickens' masterpieces.

The novel is a journey from David's sad and poor childhood to his maturity, on a path full of joys, sorrows, challenges and triumphs. Along the way, we will see all of David's learning through the years.

Orphaned at a very young age after the tragic loss of his parents,David will have to face the harsh realities of being an orphan in 19th century London.

Along the way, he will meet a series of interesting and unforgettable characters, each with their own peculiarities and moral lessons that will try to draw him to the dark side as well as the side of virtue. David will have to learn to make his own choices and find his place in the world.

The novel is a reflection on identity formation and personal growth. It also portrays the negative aspects of Victorian society such as hypocrisy, inequality and injustice.

"Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show. To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record that I was born (as I have been informed and believe) on a Friday, at twelve o’clock at night. It was remarked that the clock began to strike, and I began to cry, simultaneously."
