The high-spirited work of a young Dickens, The Pickwick Papers is
the remarkable first novel that made its author famous and that has
remained one of the best-known books in the world. In it the
inimitable Samuel Pickwick, his well-fed body and unsinkable good
spirits clad in tights and gaiters, sallies forth through the noisy
streets of London and into the colorful country inns of rural
England for a series of sparkling encounters with love and
misadventure. From the wit of cockney bootblack Sam Weller to the
unforgettable Fat Boy and rascals like the amorous Mr. Jingle and
the unscrupulous lawyers Dodson and Fogg, The Pickwick Papers reels
with joyous fantasy, infectious good humor, and a touch of the
macabre--a classic work that G. K. Chesterton called "the great
example of everything that made Dickens great... a] supreme
