The old curiosity shop by Charles Dickens( Book )

275 editions published between 1 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sensational bestselling story of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, seems to belong less to the history of the Victorian novel than to folklore, fairy tale, or myth. The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset by Dickens's creation of a dazzling contemporary world inhabited by some of his most brilliantly drawn characters-the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid known as the "Marchioness"; the mannish lawyer Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten mother-in-law; and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic energy makes a vivid counterpoint to Nell's purity

Resumen: El mismo Dickens consideraba a David Copperfield no solo su obra preferida, sino quizá la mejor de todas las que había escrito. Quizá y en parte, se deba a que muchos consideran que esta es una obra autobiográfica, aunque con muchos elementos de fantasía mezclados en la narración, en la cual a trozos de aventura real, siguen pedazos conmovedores y escenas domésticas descritas con esa mano maestra del gran escritor inglés. Los personajes van desde los más detestables villanos hasta figuras de gran dulzura y están descritos con mano maestra y dentro de un argumento en el que el interés no se pierde un momento. Muchos han colocado a David Copperfield en la lista de las grandes novelas de todos los tiempos y por eso se presenta orgullosamente en esta colección
