David's happy childhood days in the village of Blunderstone with his mother, Clara, and at Great Yarmouth with their servant, Peggotty and her family, are brought to an end by the marriage of Clara to high-minded but brutal Edward Murdstone.
Episode 2. David is now working in London as a clerk at Spenlow's and living at Mrs Crupp's house. Dina Nasir. Simon Harris. Chesterton accused Dickens of presenting emigration in an excessively optimistic light. That Dickens believed that by sending a boatload of people overseas their 'souls' can be changed, while ignoring the fact that poor people like Peggotty have seen their home stained or, like Emily, their honour tarnished.
Micawber has been broken by the English social system and his journey to the antipodes is paid for by a paragon of the Victorian bourgeoisie, Betsey Trotwood,  And he is supposed to regain control of his destiny once he has arrived in Australia. Dickens cares about material and psychological happiness, and is convinced that physical well-being is a comfort for life's wounds. Dickens sent his characters to America in Nicholas Nickleby and Martin Chuzzlewit , but he has the Peggotty and Micawber families emigrate to the Australia.
This approach was part of official policy of the s, focusing on Australia as a land of welcome. It was at this time necessary to stimulate interest in the new colony and propagandists arrived in England in particular John Dunmore Lang and Caroline Chisholm from Australia. Dickens was only following this movement and, in any case, had faith in family colonisation. Moreover, the idea that redemption could be achieved by such a new start in a person's life was a preoccupation of the author, and he saw here subject matter to charm his readers.
From the point of view of the novel's inner logic, in order for Copperfield to complete his psychological maturation and exist independently, Dickens must expel his surrogate fathers, including Peggotty and Micawber, and emigration is an easy way to remove them. The episode in the prison, according to novelist Angus Wilson , is more than a piece of journalism;  it represents Dickens's vision of the society in which he lives.
The same can be said of the episodes concerning prostitution and emigration, which illuminate the limits of Copperfield's moral universe and Dickens's own uncertainties. All these conversions are somewhat 'ironic',  and tend to undermine the hypothesis of 'a Dickens believing in the miracle of the antipodes', which Jane Rogers considers in her analysis of the 'fallen woman' as a plot device to gain the sympathy of Dickens' readers for Emily.
John Forster , Dickens's early biographer, praises the bourgeois or middle-class values and ideology found in David Copperfield. Gateth Cordery takes a close look at class consciousness.
According to him, Copperfield's relationship with aristocrat Steerforth and the humble Uriah Heep is "crucial". The Peggotty family, in Chapter 3, treat him with respect, "as a visitor of distinction"; even at Murdstone and Grinby, his behaviour and clothes earned him the title of "the little gentleman".
When he reached adulthood, he naturally enjoyed Steerforth's disdain for Ham as a simple "joke about the poor".
So he is predisposed to succumb, by what he calls in chapter 7 an "inborn power of attraction", to the charm instinctively lent to beautiful people, about which David said "a kind of enchantment. In parallel there is a contempt of the upstart, Heep, hatred of the same nature as Copperfield's senseless adoration for Steerforth, but inverted.
That ' umble Heep goes from a lowly clerk to an associate at Wickfield's, to claiming to win the hand of Agnes, daughter of his boss, is intolerable to David, though it is very similar to his own efforts to go from shorthand clerk to literary fame, with Dora Spenlow, the daughter of his employer.
Another concern of Dickens is the institution of marriage and in particular the unenviable place occupied by women. Whether at the home of Wickfield, Strong, or under the Peggotty boat, women are vulnerable to predators or intruders like Uriah Heep, Jack Maldon, James Steerforth; Murdstone's firmness prevails up to the death of two wives; with David and Dora complete incompetence reigns; and at the Micawber household, love and chaos go hand in hand; while Aunt Betsey is subjected to blackmail by her mysterious husband.
Dickens, according to Gareth Cordery, clearly attacks the official status of marriage, which perpetuated an inequality between the sexes, an injustice that does not end with the separation of couples. The mid-Victorian era saw change in gender roles, for men and women, in part forced by the factories and separation of work and home, which made stereotypes of the woman at home and the man working away from home.
Dickens's understanding of the burden on women in marriage in this novel contrasts with his treatment of his own wife Catherine , whom he expected to be an Angel in the House. Martha Endell and Emily Peggotty, the two friends in Yarmouth who work at the undertaker's house, reflect Dickens's commitment to "save" so-called fallen women. Dickens was co-found with Angela Burdett-Coutts Urania Cottage, a home for young women who had "turned to a life of immorality", including theft and prostitution.
After Steerforth deserts her, she doesn't go back home, because she has disgraced herself and her family. Her uncle, Mr Peggotty, finds her in London on the brink of being forced into prostitution. So that she may have a fresh start away from her now degraded reputation, she and her uncle emigrate to Australia. Martha has been a prostitute and contemplated suicide but towards the end of the novel, she redeems herself by helping Daniel Peggotty find his niece after she returns to London.
She goes with Emily to start a new life in Australia. There, she marries and lives happily. Their emigration to Australia, in the wake of that of Micawber, Daniel Peggotty, and Mr Mell, emphasizes Dickens' belief that social and moral redemption can be achieved in a distant place, where someone may create a new and healthy life. Morally, Dickens here conforms to the dominant middle-class opinion,. John O Jordan devotes two pages to this woman, also "lost," though never having sinned.
Dickens denounced this restrictive dichotomy by portraying women "in between". Such is Rosa Dartle, passionate being, with the inextinguishable resentment of having been betrayed by Steerforth, a wound that is symbolised by the vibrant scar on her lip. Never does she allow herself to be assimilated by the dominant morality, refusing tooth and nail to put on the habit of the ideal woman. Avenger to the end, she wants the death of Little Emily, both the new conquest and victim of the same predator, and has only contempt for the efforts of David to minimize the scope of his words.
As virtuous as anyone else, she claims, especially that Emily, she does not recognize any ideal family, each being molded in the manner of its social class, nor any affiliation as a woman: she is Rosa Dartle, in herself. David's vision, on the other hand, is marked by class consciousness: for him, Rosa, emaciated and ardent at the same time, as if there were incompatibility chapter 20 , is a being apart, half human, half animal, like the lynx, with its inquisitive forehead, always on the look out chapter 29 , which consumes an inner fire reflected in the gaunt eyes of the dead of which only this flame remains chapter In reality, says Jordan, it is impossible for David to understand or even imagine any sexual tension, especially that which governs the relationship between Rosa and Steerforth, which, in a way, reassures his own innocence and protects what he calls his "candor" - frankness or angelism?
Also, Rosa Dartle's irreducible and angry marginality represents a mysterious threat to his comfortable and reassuring domestic ideology. Dickens's approach to the novel is influenced by various things, including the picaresque novel tradition,  melodrama ,  and the novel of sensibility. Fielding's Tom Jones   was a major influence on the nineteenth century novel including Dickens, who read it in his youth,  and named a son Henry Fielding Dickens in his honour.
Trevor Blount comments on the fascination that Dickens has always exercised on the public. He mentions the lavishness, energy, vividness, brilliance, and tenderness of Dickens's writing, along with the range of his imagination.
Blount also refers to Dickens's humour, and his use of the macabre and of pathos. Finally Blount celebrates the artistic mastery of an overflowing spontaneity, which is conveyed carried with both delicacy and subtlety. This is best illustrated in many of Dickens's works, by the powerful figure of a weak individual. In David Copperfield Mr Wilkins Micawber is such a figure, someone who is formidably incompetent, grandiose in his irreducible optimism, sumptuous in his verbal virtuosity, and whose grandiloquent tenderness is irresistibly comical.
However, her fondness for "peppermint cordial" renders her incapable of fulfilling her promise to Aunt Betsey Maggie Smith to treat David as if he were her own son. Romance is in the air as David secretly gets engaged to his employer's daughter, the beautiful but dizzy Dora Spenlow Joanna Page - despite Mr Spenlow's James Grout outrage. Spenlow's death soon after, however, gives David a chance to marry Dora, and he starts to write his stories and columns for newspapers.

When he is released, he and his family are forced to move to Plymouth, leaving David homeless. David runs away from London to Dover, to find Betsey Trotwood in the hope that she will take him in.
