Posthumous papers of the Pickwick Club, no. 08

Public

Tells the story of Samuel Pickwick, a good natured elderly gentleman, president of the Pickwick Club. With three other members of the club, Pickwick travels around the English countryside, where he becomes caught up in a series of comic adventures, and romantic and legal misunderstandings. Although light in tone, the novel foreshadows the social concerns that would emerge in Dickens' later work. Issued monthly from April 1836 to November 1837. Chapters 21-23: Chapter 21: In which the old man launches forth into his favourite theme, and relates a story about a queer client Chapter 22: Mr. Pickwick journeys to Ipswich, and meets with a romantic adventure with a middle-aged lady in yellow curl papers Chapter 23: In which Mr. Samuel Weller begins to devote his energies to the return match between himself and Mr. Trotter
