This edition of Nicholas Nickleby includes a Foreword and
When his father dies suddenly, Nicholas Nickleby must decide on his
future. Unfortunately, Nicholas has very few prospects...and even
less money! Luckily, his Uncle Ralph has pulled some strings at a
school called Dotheboys Hall and Nicholas is hired on as a teacher.
However, the naive and kindhearted Nicholas discovers that the
headmaster, a sniveling worm by the name of Wackford Squeers, is a
blackhearted, malicious bully who treat the boys in his care
abominably. He'd like to leave, but then his uncle will cut off all
support for his mother and sister. Should Nicholas tough it out? Or
will he seek his fortune elsewhere?
