      Cost of Value-Delivery — how much would it cost to create and deliver the value offered, both in money and effort? On the one hand, theorists gotta theorize. As such, Copperfield serves as "medium", mirror and also screen, Dickens sometimes subverting his speech to get to the forefront or, on the contrary, hide behind this elegant delegate to the nimble pen. And then the letters to me, of course.

      But the most direct literary influence is "obviously Carlyle" [22] who, in a lecture given inthe year of his meeting with Dickens, on "On Heroes, Hero-Worship", and "the Heroic in History", [23] claims that the most important modern character is "the hero as a man of letters". The bar, sadly, is our brawling country — and others like it. On his return, David is given good reason to dislike his stepfather, who believes exclusively in firmness, and has similar feelings for Murdstone's sister Jane, who moves into the house soon afterwards. They were effortlessly absorbed into the media, industry and civil service, serving a Nigeria driven by optimism on its way to freedom from British rule.

      David was born in BlunderstoneSuffolk, England, six months after the death of his father. Working on the right thing is probably more important than working hard. David toils to make a living. Yes, the world has gotten better for hundreds of millions. Martha Endell — A young woman, once Little Emily's friend, who later gains a bad reputation; it is implied that she engages in some sexually inappropriate behaviour and is thus disgraced.
