i am in year 12 and am doing english extension 1.We have to find two chosen texts to study and i want to do David Copperfield but i cant find any proof about it containing "the individual in society" and "social comments". I need to find actual proof to show the teacher as she won't read the book. So can someone please suggest somewhere i can get this information?

   In 1823 ( Dickens was eleven year boy .) his family moved to London ,where his father was suddenly arrested for debt and sent to the prison .For the three months that John Dickens and his family lived in a single , cramped room in the Marshalsea ,Charles was left to live alone in lodgings , and was sent to work at the factory .These three months changed him as a person and as a writer and social critic.The misery of the Warren ( a friend of him ) experience reflected in several chapers of David Copperfield ------ the social problems , for example , prisons , degraded conditions of labor , children lost in the city , grew out of the
traumatic childhood experience . It was the "Victorian Age ".
In additon , the prostitution in 19th century London , lack of professional opportunities for women , are serious issues of his time .
That's why I recommend you to search the subject of "Victorian Age" for furthermore good understanding .
I hope my comment for your question will be helpful .
