Hi , Joppash
I hope my comment on "David Copperfield " will be helpful for you .
One of my most moving sence ( atomoshpere (?) ) is from the last part of Chapter 11 .
< My favorite lounging-place in the interval was old
London bridge , where I was wont to sit in one of
the stone recess, watching the pepole going by ,
by ........Monument . >
On reading these lines , I felt sorry for his pitiful , hard life as a orphan to know his spending free time wandering atound London Bridge .
It is greatly visual scene , I think .
From this selection , how vividly Dickens could depict it , how he himself had unhappy experience that snstilled him with a sense of having been abandoned by Dickens'family .
If he had not have such a miserable life at his youth , he might not have written the scene sympathised by readers .
Anyway , a knowledge of the details of the life of Charles D. adds considerably to one's interest in reading "David Copperfield " because this novel is largely autobiographical .
I hope you send me good news on your school paper sometime soon !
Good luck !
