DAVID COPPERFIELD: EXPLORING VICTORIAN ENGLAND OF CHARLES DICKENS   

Dr. Gloria Eastman is a retired Professor Emerita of English from the Metropolitan State University of Denver and specializing in 19th century British Literature and English who will lead you on an exploration of Charles Dickens’ novel, David Copperfield, and the social and historical realities of early Victorian England. As you dive into the much-loved and largely autobiographical work of Dickens -- who self-described this piece of literature as his “favourite child” – you will examine Dickensian themes surrounding the Victorian social issues of women, child labor, education, industrialization and the middle-class. In addition, you will explore the vivid cast of characters created by Dickens: the impoverished Wilkins Micawber, the formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood, the treacherous Uriah Heep, and many others.

Required Book: Dickens, Charles. David Copperfield, Penguin Classics paperback edition ($8.99 on Amazon).
