CHAPTER 19 – I LOOK ABOUT ME, AND MAKE A DISCOVERY

Copperfield leaves school, but can’t decide what he wants to do, so his aunt suggests he goes to see Peggotty. Before he leaves, the people that he knows in Canterbury have a leaving party for him. Agnes asks Copperfield whether he has noticed anything odd about her father’s behaviour. Copperfield says yes.

On the way to stay with Peggotty, Copperfield stays in a hotel overnight and meets up with Steerforth. They are both overjoyed.

 

CHAPTER 20 – STEERFORTH’S HOME

At breakfast the next day, Steerforth offered him to stay for one or two days at his house. Then he shows him the sights.

Living with Steerforth is his mother, and her friend, Miss Rosa Dartle. She has a scar on her chin, which Steerforth later confesses that he did to her when he was younger by throwing a hammer at her.

 

CHAPTER 21 – LITTLE EM’LY

Steerforth says that he wishes to come with Copperfield to Yarmouth.

In Yarmouth, Steerforth and Copperfield stop to visit Peggotty and Barkis. Barkis is very rheumatic now.

They also see Mrs Gummidge, Mr Peggotty, Emily, and Ham.

On the night they arrive, they are having an engagement party for Emily and Ham.
