Produktbeschreibungen

Charles Dickens's first published work, "The Pickwick Papers" was an instant success that captured the public imagination with its colourful characters and farcical plot. This "Penguin Classics" edition of Charles Dickens's is edited with notes and an introduction by Mark Wormald. Few first novels have created as much popular excitement as "The Pickwick Papers" - a comic masterpiece that catapulted its twenty-four-year-old author to immediate fame. Readers were captivated by the adventures of the poet Snodgrass, the lover Tupman, the sportsman Winkle and, above all, by that quintessentially English Quixote, Mr Pickwick, and his cockney Sancho Panza, Sam Weller. From the hallowed turf of Dingley Dell Cricket Club to the unholy fracas of the Eatanswill election, via the Fleet debtors' prison, characters and incidents spring to life from Dickens's pen, to form an enduringly popular work of ebullient humour and literary invention. This edition is based on the first volume edition of 1837, and includes the original illustrations. In his introduction, Mark Wormald discusses the genesis of "The Pickwick Papers" and the emergence of its central characters.Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including "Oliver Twist", "Great Expectations", "A Tale of Two Cities", "David Copperfield" and "The Pickwick Papers", have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you enjoyed "The Pickwick Papers", you might like Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and "Other Christmas Writings", also available in "Penguin Classics". "Dickens sees human beings with the most intense vividness...Consequently his greatest success is "The Pickwick Papers"." (George Orwell). "One of my life's greatest tragedies is to have already read "Pickwick Papers" - I can't go back and read it for the first time." (Fernando Pessoa).

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Jonathan Leach am 17. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Joyousness saturates this book. In a spare moment, you can grab it, read a page or two, and your whole day feels brighter. Slapstick comedy and wordplay and satire abound -- it's as if Dickens's chest must have been bursting with a thousand jokes, and this book gave him the opportunity. You come away feeling as if you'd spent a week in the country among friends, laughing.

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Matt Myford (mmyford@etsieb.com) am 26. November 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
Having never read any Dickens before - and unaware this was his maiden effort - I was hooked from the first few pages. The benevolent Mr. Pickwick, with his faithful sidekicks, experiences Victorian England as a well-to-do citizen. While the bulk of this novel deals with the "softer" side of society, the hard-edged aspects of the era are nonetheless acknowledged. With memorable characters, marvelous misadventures, subtle comedic touches, and an occasional suprise around the corner, this novel holds it's own as a "classic." My only "Pickwick" regret was waiting this long (24 yrs. old) to read it. This book will undoubtedly serve as a springboard for ALL of Charles Dickens' works.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Mark Valentine am 10. Mai 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Immense in size, this early Dickens novel is just as large in providing pleasurable reading; I didn't want it to end. Dickens published it in 1837 when he was 25 years old; impressive. His range of characters, episodic plot, lively dialogue, humorous situations, never lags. Although not as weighty as that other great laughing satire, Don Quixote, Pickwick is in the same genre and should be read as a thematic companion to that great Spanish novel.
Dickens loves the tale, I mean, telling the tale; it is all in the storytelling. Although it never dips into philosophy, science, morality, politics, or other pithy topics, Dicken's vast canvas ranges over the quixotic turns that happen in life. Pickwick, the title character, is completely lovable in his formality, politeness, and cordiality, making him a perrenially memorable character.
Read this novel, friends, and give it to your friends who love to read. Or to anyone who loves the rich tapestry of mature storytelling, Dickens-style. This was the first novel to put him into popularity, and I see why.

Format: Taschenbuch
I don't think I've ever read a novel half as entertaining as The Pickwick Papers. I agree with the reviewer who said that it was as if Dickens had a million jokes that he wanted to get off of his chest. And such wonderful characters! The last part of the book though is more about Mr. Pickwick himself than about the club. He also becomes less of a doofus and more of a lovealbe and sympathetic character as the novel progresses. If you are ever down and feeling depressed then this is the book to read.Sam Weller is one of Dickens greatest characters, the book really comes into its own when he becomes Mr.Pickwicks servent.

It's not often that I laugh out loud when reading, but Pickwick has many such moments. (See, for example, Mr. Winkle's equestrian adventure.) While Pickwick foreshadows some of Dickens' later work on social concerns, such as debtor's prisons and interminable estate litigation, mostly it is just a fun and funny book, with an endearingly aimless plotline and lovable characters. If you thought Dickens was all about darkness and tragedy, try this one. It's a real gem!

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 28. August 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Pickwick Papers, (or rather The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club) although not Dickens' best work, is still a wondeful novel. The writing isn't as consistently good as it is in his later novels, but none of the writing is bad, and there are several flashes of brilliance which seem to herald what Dickens' would become when his genius had time to ripen (one of these can be found at the end of chapter 44, a beautifully written account of the death of a prisoner in a debtor's prison). In the beginning, despite being very funny, the novel, and indeed Mr. Pickwick, may seem rather inane. Keep reading. The story of Mr. Pickwick's trial and eventual imprisonment is one of the most brilliant pieces of comic literature, and Mr. Pickwick grows into a truly monumental character by the end. And Sam Weller, Mr. Pickwick's cockney servant, is one of the best characters in all of Dickens. Clever, witty, and cynical, he seems to light up every page. The book has a very happy ending, in which all loose ends are tied together and every character gets what he or she deserves. It is truly uplifting. I strongly reccommend this book.

Format: Taschenbuch
The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens ostensibly follows the exploits of a "scientific club" headed by Mr. Pickwick, a retired businessman of financial means. But as Dickens notes in his preface, the club is a mere point- of- departure for a rollicking story, and is soon left behind. This is a wonderful book, notwithstanding a few tedious spots, and some "sidebar" tales that could have been left out. Dickens' true genius lies in his portraits of the two Wellers- Sam and his father- who gradually assume main character status. Rembrandt himself could not have depicted them with more insight. His sketches of these two are so lively, and so full of good- natured humor, that they will live in your memory for years to come.
