Description

Young Nicholas's father dies, leaving him penniless and responsible for his mother and sister. When his uncle, Ralph Nickleby, refuses to help him, he sets out to make a living, first as usher to the brutal schoolmaster Wackford Squeers, and later in the counting house of Ned and Charles Cheeryble. Meanwhile, however, he must protect his sister Kate, his beloved Madeline Bray, and his faithful friend Smike from his conniving uncle. In Nicholas Nickleby, Dickens attacked schools and schoolmasters, and his ruthless exposure of injustice in the system led to widespread reform.
