Still Another Charles Dickens David Copperfield Update
In my last update a couple of weeks ago www.personapaper.com/article/45017-another-dickens-david-copperfield-update , I reported that David Copperfield's mother and half-brother had just died.
Following their deaths, David's step-father, Mr. Murdstone, sent David to London to work in a factory operated by Murdstone's business partner. While working in the factory, David lives in a room of the MiCawber family's home. After the MiCawbers' have to leave London, Copperfield runs away from the factory and walks all of the way to Dover where his great aunt lives and begs to live with her.
When the great aunt, Betsy Trotwood, reports this news to Mr. Murdstone, Murdstone and his sister immediately visit Trotwood with the intent of sending him back to the factory. Aunt Betsy then admonishes the Murdstones for mistreating David, and she asserts her right to be his guardian now.
David is sent to a nearby school, and after he graduates from it at the age of 17, Aunt Betsy suggests David travel for a month and visit his now married old nurse Peggotty.
The story has been very interesting and exciting up to date. There are no indications yet, however, of what David now wants to do with his life. Please stay tuned for the next update.
