My rescue from this kind of existence I considered quite hopeless, and abandoned, as such, altogether.

Background.

itemMy rescue from this kind of existence I considered quite hopeless, and abandoned, as such, altogether.” is a quotation from David Copperfield (Chapter 11).

- David Copperfield is the eighth novel by Charles Dickens, first published between 1849 and 1850.

 

Context.

- This quotation is taken from the following passage in Chapter 11 of David Copperfield:

My rescue from this kind of existence I considered quite hopeless, and abandoned, as such, altogether. I am solemnly convinced that I never for one hour was reconciled to it, or was otherwise than miserably unhappy; but I bore it; and even to Peggotty, partly for the love of her and partly for shame, never in any letter (though many passed between us) revealed the truth.

Mr. Micawber’s difficulties were an addition to the distressed state of my mind. In my forlorn state I became quite attached to the family, and used to walk about, busy with Mrs. Micawber’s calculations of ways and means, and heavy with the weight of Mr. Micawber’s debts..
