Example text

His childish erotic love leads him into the world of professional activity, competence, growth, and finally fame. To achieve this, David must learn to draw for both his personal “comfort” and his professional literary work on the “shadowy world” of his father’s books and also on the fairytale and romantic dream realm in which the enchantments of Dora and Steerforth are vividly present—without becoming trapped in the prison of romantic regression. The disasters of his first marriage and of his bedazzled friendship with Steerforth—both of which lead to death—can only be survived by the rigorous, “earnest” professional activity as a writer that he develops out of economic and personal necessity (560).

But the most famous instance of child abuse is not physical so much as social and psychological: David’s slave labor in his stepfather’s ratinfested warehouse at the decaying edge of the river. The opening lines of the description, which are close to those Dickens used in his autobiographical fragment a few years before, are extraordinary: “It is a matter of some surprise to me, even now, that I can have been so easily thrown 29 30 C harles D ickens ’ s H eroic V ictims away at such an age. A child of excellent abilities, and with strong powers of observation, quick, eager, delicate, and soon hurt bodily or mentally, it seems wonderful to me that nobody should have made any sign in my behalf.

Pip. Pip, sir’ ” (10). The repetitions convey chirping, of course, and this fledgling is indeed about to be “pipped”—the convict immediately turns him upside-down, shakes him, and places him on a gravestone. In this birth, Pip and his world have been turned topsy-turvy. What he first sees from his new perch is the agent of this transformation “ravenously” eating a bit of bread that has dropped out of Pip’s pocket. So for the convict to alter Pip’s condition, to raise him, is also for the convict to be fed, kept alive, and soon delivered from bondage.
