  It is a story dealing with the life of an ordinary person from childhood to maturity. It is called David Copperfied. When I read this novel for the first time,   I was attracted by not only Dickens’ spirit and humorous language, but also the lifelike and abundant character of every personage in the novel.
  The protagonist in this novel, David Copperfied is an independent and diligent person.

With deep sorrow, David went to Australia. After returning, he married Agnes, who had always loved him, and then they lived in a happy life .

It seems that the whole story is like a parasitical dream, where there was happiness, anger, grief and joy. I’ll never forget the diligence and innocence of David. I’ll never forget the lovely servant Peggotty. I’ll never forget the harsh cruel and ferocious Mr. Murdstone. I’ll never forget the hypocritical and unctuous Steerforth, certainly, and Betsey, DoraAgnes,etc. All these characters leave the unforgettable impression on readers. As the time goes by , these images will always be remembered by us and not be diluted by anything.
  It is not difficult to find out that the protagonist’s growth road is bumpy and indignant. In the meantime, we also find there are so many true friends around the protagonist. They always help David when he meet some...
