The novel reflects writer’s own life – his autobiography. The image and character of David Copperfield corresponds to the image and character of Dickens himself. The range of personages of the novel recalls to us people which were close to Dickens: Micowber is comical portrait of John Dickens, the father of the author; the image of Dora – is the exact copy of the Marry Bindel – the first sweet-heart of the writer; David’s seeking in marri... ... middle of paper ... ... the novel, “Of all my books I like this the best”.

As much as they abhorred the new "scientism" that passed for authority in the modern era, the New Critics believed the study of literature could be more organized and systematic than it had been in the past. Specifically, they believed they could isolate the object of their work just as other "sciences" had isolat... ... middle of paper ... ... on many fronts. First, in its insistence on excluding external evidence, New Criticism disqualifies many possibly fruitful perspectives for understanding texts, such as historicism, psychoanalysis, and Marxism. Since New Criticism aims at finding one "correct" reading, it also ignores the ambiguity of language and the active nature of the perception of meaning described by poststructuralists. Finally, it can even be perceived as elitist, because it excludes those readers who lack the background for arriving at the "correct" interpretation.
The theme described is also demonstrated within the novel Of Mice and Men. Steinbeck's past relationships and personal life are a great influence in his work. By delving into Steinbeck's biographies and literary criticisms, a mixture of his life and sympathy for American society was discovered in the novel Of Mice and Men (Draper 3373). John Steinbeck, born February 27th, 1902, in Salinas, California, worked mainly as a field hand, developing many of his characters from the people whom he worked alongside (Rylant et al. 70).

John Grisham is an exceptional portrayal of an American postmodern author because he manages to include a diverse arrangement of the many facets of our society today in his many novels. Postmodernism, as the name suggests, is the literary period that comes after the modern period. It is said to have first appeared sometime after World War II, most likely in the 1950s, as a reaction to the modern era of literature. It reached its peak sometime during the 1960s and 1970s with all of the social and political unrest in the world (Literary Movements for Students 246). The release of Catch 22, by Joseph Heller, and Slaughterhouse Five, by Kurt Vonnegut, marked the approximate peak of the period (Literary Movements for Students 247).
Many of the events of the novel, David Copperfield, have been compared to Charles Dickens own life; therefore many believe the novel to be somewhat autobiographical. John Forster one of Charles Dickens close friends and the author of Dickens biography wrote, “too much had been assumed…of the full identity of Dickens with his hero; but certainly a good deal of Dickens’s character and experience went into the book”(Unknown 2). Forster’s remark deals mainly with some of the public’s belief that the entire story of David Copperfield was autobiographical. Charles Dickens began work on David Copperfield after John Forster questioned him about his childhood. E. D. H. Johnson's, Charles Dickens: An Introduction to His Novels, discussed a conversation that John Forster overheard between Charles Dickens’s father and a man, in which; the man claimed that he remembered a young Dickens working in his factory (Johnson 1).
