Martin Chuzzlewit CharlesDickens

Young Martin Chuzzlewit, a careless lad who is scorned by his tough and upright old grandfather, travels to America to seek his fortune. Dickens's satiric vision of America as a place full of criminals and disease alienated many of his American fans, but Martin survives his American ordeal and returns to England. He finds his grandfather in thrall to the conniving Pecksniff. In the end, thanks to the wit of the wily old man and to Martin's inherent goodness, all is well: the evil are punished, the virtuous rewarded, and Dickens's usual wit and colorful cast of characters are much in evidence. Dickens pronounced Martin Chuzzlewit one of his favorites among his novels. Original rather cumbersome title was 'The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit, His relatives, friends, and enemies. Comprising all His Wills and his Ways, with an Historical Record of what he did and what he didn't. Shewing Moreover, who Inherited the Family Plate; who came in for the Silver Spoons, and who for the Wooden Ladles. The whole forming a complete Key To The House Of Chuzzlewit'. Often regarded as Dickens most humorous novel.
