Few first novels created as much popular excitement as The Pickwick Papers – a comic masterpiece that catapulted to immediate fame its 24-year-old author. The adventures of the poet Snodgrass, the lover Tupman, the sportsman Winkle &, above all, that quintessentially English Quixote, Mr Pickwick and... his cockney Sancho Panza, Sam Weller, captivated the readers. From Dingley Dell Cricket Club's hallowed turf to the unholy fracas of the Eatanswill election, through the prison of the Fleet debtor, characters & incidents sprang from Dickens' pen to life, forming an enduringly popular work of humor & literary invention.

Quotes from The Pickwick Papers

I never heerd...nor read of nor see in picters, any angel in tights and gaiters...but...he's a reg'lar thoroughbred angel for all that.

You've got the key of the street.

Poetry makes life what lights and music do the stage.

Can I view thee panting, lying
On thy stomach, without sighing;
Can I unmoved see thee dying
On a log
Expiring frog!

She dotes on poetry, sir. She adores it; I may say that her whole soul and mind are wound up, and entwined with it. She has produced some delightful pieces, herself, sir. You may have met with her 'Ode to an Expiring Frog,' sir.
