Reader's note

This first episode of The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club came out in a magazine in march 1836. Although the aim of The Pickwick Paper was simply ‘the introduction of diverting characters and incidents’, it began to come alive. Mr Pickwick, the benevolent, trustful idealist, was perfectly complemented by his man, Sam Weller, who was full of a wry, cynical humour. Together they became a new Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. The adventure of Mr Pickwick and his friends covered every aspect of contemporary life which Dickens found comic. There was a strong element of social criticism, to, of the kind of readers soon learned except from Dickens. Crooked politicians, hypocritical clergymen and inequitable lawyers were all satirized as they deserved.
