David Copperfield by Simon Curtis( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The classic 'David Copperfield' was not just Charles Dickens' favorite work. It has been the most popular of his books since it was first published 150 years ago. Micawber, Peggotty, Betsey Trotwood, Uriah Heep, Mr. Creakle, Mrs. Crupp, and Mr. Dick ... never were so many of Dickens' famous and best-loved characters gathered together in just one of his works. They are all brought to life by a world-class cast including Oscar-wiinner Dame Maggie Smith, Bob Hoskins, Nicholas Lyndhurst, and Pauline Quirke in this sparkling adaptation. The most autobiographical of Dickens' work, 'David Copperfield' often echoes the writer's own life. It tells a moving story of David's journey from birth to maturity, a journey which inextricably links his life with some of Dickens' most colorful and extraordinary families."
