    Die Pickwickier von Charles Dickens (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: Both books are early Dickens' novels and written in an episodic, picaresque style. Although Nicholas Nickleby is more plot-driven than The Pickwick Papers and contains some darker themes, both works are fundamentally happy Dickens novels and readers who enjoy one would probably enjoy the other.… (mehr)

I thought this was a very long read, not very interesting. Much to my interest this book was described as being comical. Well, I missed that completely... Maybe that's why I didn't care for it much.
Wanted to finish it, because it's a 1001-book, but otherwise I'm not sure if I'd gotten till the end. ( )

Dickens 4th book, and 3rd novel, published in 1838-39 and cementing his speedy celebrity, Nickleby combines the angry social statements of Oliver Twist with something of the sense of sharp satire of The Pickwick Papers. True, neither Nicholas nor Kate exhibit much in the way of interesting features, but as Tintin-esque Everypeople, they are surrounded by a gallery of delightful characters. The Victorian pathos is there in spades, and some of it is really quite silly, but one can feel Dickens gaining such a sense of self-assuredness as he works through this novel, and the picaresque nature of Nickleby's travels will not be equalled by any of the other novels that feature extensive journeys. The acting troupe, the brutal world of Mantilini's dress shop, and the figure of Ralph Nickleby, who extends on Fagin's sparks of life to suggest that the author might one day be interested in creating characters with more than one-and-a-half dimensions.

Excepting parts of Little Dorrit and David Copperfield, this is the Dickens novel that has the purest sense of fun, and combined with some of the powerful statements about the workhouse and the place of women, it's a very worthy read. To be honest, I think this is the height of the Dickens canon for several years, until Copperfield comes along. ( )

My fourth Dickens read, and maybe my second favorite, right behind [b:David Copperfield|58696|David Copperfield|Charles Dickens||4711940]. It's the same sort of traveling feast of characters as that and the [b:The Pickwick Papers|229432|The Pickwick Papers|Charles Dickens||3315230], and the usual good vs. evil storyline. The secondary characters in this one are so good, though, that it makes up for some of the more formulaic aspects: La Creevy, John Browdie, Newman Noggs, and the deliciously good villains: "schoolmeasther" Squeers, Ralph Nickleby, and Arthur Gride. I don't remember if most Dickens books have such a great plot twist at the end as this one, but it was a good one!

This might be the fastest I've ever read a Dickens novel: 15 days! ( )

When, many years ago, I read Sketches by Boz, Dickens's first book, it was obvious that here was a young, incredibly talented writer who had an eye for character, plots, catch-phrases, social themes - in short, that all he would need to do would be to put it all together and he would be a master novelist.

Three years after Sketches by Boz, following on from the success of Oliver Twist, Dickens publishes Nicholas Nickleby, his third novel, and still he hasn't managed to put it all together. I didn't like Nicholas Nickleby for much the same reason that I didn't like Oliver Twist: it's mawkish, contrived, sentimental, preachy, predictable, and obsessively focused on the family as the root of all goodness.

For all its faults, I could forgive a work like The Pickwick Papers for its wandering, anarchic structure. It was possible to forgive it, not just because it was a first novel, but because this anarchism felt somehow revolutionary, as though Dickens were the avant-garde heir to Sterne's Tristram Shandy. With Nicholas Nickleby, however, I could no longer overlook such faults.

If The Pickwick Papers seemed to lack a plot, then Nicholas Nickleby erred in the other direction, with narrative threads heading off in all sorts of directions. Too often these threads were done just so that Dickens could show off his ability to generate amusing characters and situations (the sequence where Nicholas joins a group of actors, for instance) or in order to double back and tie up this end in the most cliched way available - I spotted Miss La Creevy's fate from a hundred miles away, along with that of almost every other unmarried woman in the book (I am disappointed that Mrs Nickleby doesn't end up with the lunatic next door).

One of the things that I like about nineteenth century literature, however, is a growing feeling of ambivalence, a sentiment that is reflected in the morally ambiguous characters that increasingly populate the literature of that time. Dickens will also embrace this trend in later works - Great Expectations, for instance, is full of them - but in Nicholas Nickleby the Dickensian universe is still very black and white. The good are not only good, they are saintly, while the bad are driven by an evil that borders on the irrational.

I really lament how Dickens's early works have been so lauded and elevated in the English literary canon. They are certainly of interest to Dickens scholars, but otherwise I think they are severely overrated. Works like Nickleby and Oliver Twist would, if they were written by most other writers, would probably be relegated to interesting juvenilia - as they deserve to be, no matter how great a writer Dickens would later become.

There once lived, in a sequestered part of the county of Devonshire, one Mr Godfrey Nickleby: a worthy gentleman, who, taking it into his head rather late in life that he must get married, and not being young enough or rich enough to aspire to the hand of a lady of fortune, had wedded an old flame out of mere attachment, who in her turn had taken him for the same reason.
