Image of Nicholas Nickleby

After his father's death, Nicholas Nickleby, his mother and sister are at the mercy of his cold and unfeeling Uncle Ralph. Keen to rid himself of his nephew, Ralph sends Nicholas to work for a wicked master in a Yorkshire boarding school. Unable to bear the cruelty he witnesses he flees Yorkshire and takes to the road for a series of adventures. On his return to London, Nicholas uncovers a plot to destroy his sister and even loses his heart in the first of Dickens' romantic stories. A great social campaigner, Dickens highlighted the plight of unwanted children in corrupt institutions and shocked his middle class readers.
