    When the name of the cruel schoolmaster is Wackford Sueers you just know it's going to be good Nicholas himself can sometimes be a bit prissy but this serves well as a foil for the many extreme characters that surround him and he's a lot feisty than the relatively miluetoast David Copperfield This is classic Dickens at the height of his powers My generic comment about Charles DickensFirst of all although I am a partisan of Dickens

    I’m really not sure why I like Dickens so much He is predictable there will be coincidences that could never happen in the real world and in the end everyone will get their just deserts except for the poor sad creature who is destined to see heaven ahead of his time Ah but he does it with so much style and panache He creates characters you are seldom ambivalent about dastardly villains you can feel no comp

Dickens' genius for creating eccentric yet entirely captivating characters found its fullest expression in his third novel Nicholas Nickleby published in 1839 The ebullient narrative follows Nicholas as he escapes from the influence of his villainous uncle and the wicked schoolmaster Wackford Sueers stumbles into a theatrical career and pursues his fortune through numerous adventures This Nonesuch edition features the author's final text and the illustrations Dickens himself selected to complement his wordsThe Legendary Nonesuch Dickens issued in the. Reading Dickens is like taking a deep breath of air feeling life in its most vivid formBeing completely faithless and illoyal I will now dump all previous Dickens novels and claim with brutal inconsistency that Nicholas Nickleby is my favourite Yes I know I have said it before and I am likely to say it again knowing human nature in its most Dickensian expressions But Nicholas really is my Now Time Favourite I should like to state my case as it would be very un Dickensian of me not to indulge in a long explanation of my way of thinking on the subject especially as it is a tricky situation claiming a favourite child among so many Dickens knows where that favouritism can lead in real life having painted the effects of parenting in his most colourful charactersWhyFirst of all it is a social satire Well well well that is not an argument they all are Agree but this one touches on the virtues and vices not only of the Victorian society it describes but of human family relations and business endeavours in general We will still find plenty of schoolmasters making a profit of parents neglect or gullibility and those contemporary school masters will be infinitely better at marketing their fraud with pretty business phrases of the educational genre than the odious Mr Sueers We will still find misers of Uncle Scrooge s calibre just like Ralph Nickleby all the realistic for not undergoing the magical Christmassy transformation of his later double We will find posers and cruisers who live off their social status filling their days with vanities and sexual assaults on women who are too poor and neglected to protect themselves against the shamelessness of complete entitlement Mulberry your downfall made me SMILE Dickens strong sense of social injustice is like therapy for my tortured heart and I don t mind at all that it is uite improbable that all the good hardworking caring characters have their reward in the end Nobody knew better than Dickens that real life doesn t play fair at any time But he also knew what a relief it is to feel for once in literature that AMOR VINCIT OMNIA how much injustice misery and wrong there was and yet how the world rolled on from year to year alike careless and indifferent and no man seeking to remedy or redress it when he thought of all this and selected from the mass the one slight case on which his thoughts were bent he felt indeed that there was little ground for hope and little reason why it should not form an atom in the huge aggregate of distress and sorrow and add one small and unimportant unit to swell the great amount And yet Dickens goes on to show that giving up is not an option and that the atom of sorrow that one individual feels is worthy of the great author s attention and he gives harsh reality a fictional poetical justice that being all he can do It is than nothing decidedlySo do I need any other arguments The one I chose doesn t seem to make Nicholas Nickleby stand out beside Bleak House David Copperfield Martin Chuzzlewit Great Expectations and all the other former all time favourite Dickenses So what was so refreshing this time around The bad characters were what I expected shown in their malice sly greed and comical evil The huge cast of funny supporting characters were euipped with the usual amount of burlesue humour and they were ranging from circus actors to owners of small businesses showing the diversity in which family vanities can express themselves for good and for bad Nothing unexpected there just good old Dickensian performanceThe difference lies in the good main characters The minor complaint I had regarding other Dickens novels was my lack of bonding with the too good to be true lead protagonists I didn t like David Copperfield himself that much being just too gullible and naive and I certainly didn t warm to the overly sweet and self sacrificing Esther in Bleak House That silent suffering felt almost like Dostoevsky and Dickens with his sense of humour and sharp eye for satire can t compete with the Russian master in the arena of suffering for the sake of honour it just doesn t match his joie de vivre Nicholas and his sister Kate are of a different calibre though Hotheaded rash confident they don t suffer in silence they SPEAK UPI loved that Losing your temper and speaking truth to power is so much rewarding in my world than silently suffering in your chamber crying little unseen tears over your unfair fate while leaving it to others to fix your mess Nicholas and Kate and their friends are very independent honest thinkers and they deserve what they get because they are willing to fight for it and to work honestly to achieve happinessCheers to Nicholas and Kate Keep kicking and screamingI won t say anything now as I can feel the need to analyse each single character in depth to the boredom and annoyance of anyone who proceeds to read this far Read the book instead it is worth each minute spent on itDecember Dickens 2017 a blast

Was there ever a novelist with a bigger heart than Charles Dickens This is the sixth Dickens book I ve read including the novella A Christmas Carol And like most of his other works it s expansive bursting with all manner of incident and life Some of that life mind you goes ON AND ON And a few scenes about social gracesmanners might need explaining to a contemporary reader But the overall effect if you ignore the repetition is absorbing and very satisfying Just as we binge watch the latest Netflix or Hulu series I can imagine Victorian readers binge reading the installments of this novel as they were published in the late 1830sAfter his father dies Nicholas his sister Kate and their mother are left penniless and at the mercy of the father s brother Ralph a miserly moneylender who s clearly possibly an early model for Ebenezer ScroogeRalph who hated his brother promptly separates the family and does the absolute minimum for his poor relations he sends Nicholas off to work in Yorkshire as an assistant to the loathsome Wackford Sueers who runs an abusive sham of a school for boys he sends Kate and her mother to live in a slum and arranges for Kate to work for a milliner Madame Mantalini and her no good hanger on husband Soon Nicholas and Ralph have a huge falling out and the family is cut off from any financial aid How will they survive What follows is an episodic narrative that includes forays into the theatre world no doubt drawing on Dickens s own experiences as an actor several businesses and shadowy corners of London lowlife This being a Dickens novel there are lots of coincidences some broad caricatures and a heavy social conscience especially around the plight of the poor and helpless Oddly enough while Nicholas and Kate Nickleby are thinly drawn goody goody characters their chattering mother leaps off the page with her humorous conjectures and genteel pronouncements Ralph and Sueers make fascinating contrasting villainsOther memorable characters include Ralph s clerk Newman Noggs who takes a shine to the Nicklebys Lord Frederick Verisopht say the surname aloud and Sir Mulberry Hawk two of Ralph s slimy business associates Miss La Creevy a miniature portrait painter all of the lively actors involved in the travelling theatre troupe run by Vincent Crummles John Browdie a simple but warm hearted Yorkshireman who might bring to mind Great Expectations Joe Gargery And then there s the pathetic friendless sad sack Smike whom Nicholas meets and befriends at Sueers school He s one of those idealized sentimentalized characters found only in Dickens novels It s a little unfair to judge an early Dickens novel his third written when he was in his 20s against his later works particularly masterpieces like David Copperfield and Great Expectations These later books were carefully structured and I don t recall sighing and wanting to get through any passages the way I did with this book There s one story within a story set in a tavern that practically stops the novel in its tracksBut even though I pretty much knew where the novel was going I d seen the two part stage adaptation years ago Dickens still made me laugh cry and gasp at certain passages More than most major English novelists except perhaps DH Lawrence Dickens was familiar with poverty and the lower classes and that gave him lots of knowledge about the human condition the vanity fair that makes up life now and nearly 200 years ago
