Charles Dickens: The Pickwick Papers (Unabridged)

The Pickwick Papers

Mr. Pickwick's oration upon this occasion…

Chapter 2: The First Day's Journey…

The mob hitherto had been passive spectators of the scene…

Now it so happened that Mr. Pickwick…

In this strain, with an occasional glass of ale…

'Devil of a mess on the staircase, waiter,'…

The temptation to be present at the ball…

While the aristocracy of the place…

That gentleman was fast asleep…

To this determination Mr. Winkle was urged…

The state of the case having been formally explained…

Now Mr. Winkle had opened his eyes…

Chapter 3: A New Acquaintance…

The Stroller's Tale

It was late, for I had been playing in the last piece…

I sat there for upwards of two hours…

It would afford us the highest gratification…

Mr. Tupman, thus solemnly adjured…

Chapter 4: A Field Day and Bivouac…

Mr. Pickwick had been so fully occupied in falling about…

There are very few moments in a man's existence…

Astounding evolutions they were…

'How dear Emily is flirting with the strange gentleman,'…

Chapter 5: A Short One…

Now Mr. Winkle did entertain considerable misgivings…

Now whether the tall horse…

A red-headed man was working in the garden…

Chapter 6: An Old-Fashioned Card Party…

The rubber was conducted with all that gravity…

The Ivy Green

The Convict's Return

In the first transports of her mental anguish…

On a fine Sunday evening…

The last soft light of the setting sun…

Chapter 7: How Mr. Winkle, Instead of Shooting at the Pigeon…

The slight omission was rectified.

It was therefore settled that Mr. Tupman…

Mr. Pickwick was sufficiently versed…

There being no further preliminaries to arrange…

Enthusiastic as we are in the noble cause…

Chapter 8: Strongly Illustrative of the Position…

Mr. Tupman no sooner heard this avowal…

Mr. Tupman thought of the widow at Rochester…

If Mr. Jingle, from his place of concealment…

Now, if there was one individual in the whole world…

Chapter 9: A Discovery and a Chase

For the first three or four miles…

'Jump in – jump in!'…

Chapter 10: Clearing Up All Doubts…

'Come in,' said a man's voice…

He was yet on his way to the White Hart…

'We want to know –' said Mr. Wardle…

'My dear Sir,' said the little man…

'Well, my dear Sir, well,'…

Chapter 11: Involving Another Journey

It was a more difficult task to take leave…

He tapped at the cottage door…

A Madman's Manuscript

In one thing I was deceived with all my cunning…

She died next day…

I saw the sudden change…

At the end of the manuscript was written…

Chapter 12: Descriptive of a Very Important Proceeding

Mr. Pickwick was struck motionless and speechless…

Chapter 13: Some Account of Eatanswill

It was late in the evening…

Here the little man indulged in a convulsion of mirth…

Mrs. Pott received Mr. Pickwick's paternal grasp…

The noise and bustle which ushered…

The stable-yard exhibited unequivocal symptoms…

'There's Winkle,' said Mr. Tupman…

Then Horatio Fizkin, Esquire, of Fizkin Lodge…

Chapter 14: Comprising a Brief Description

Here it was that Mr. Tupman and Mr. Snodgrass…

It's a queer name; but he used to call it The Bagman's Story…

In less than five minutes' time…

It was a good large room with big closets…

I have been a great favourite among the women in my time…

Morning aroused Tom from the lethargic slumber…

Gentlemen, I have heard my uncle say…

Chapter 15: In Which Is Given a Faithful Portraiture…

Mr. Pickwick took up his hat, and repaired to the Peacock…

The morning came…

Very few people but those who have tried it…

As the enthusiasm in Count Smorltork's favour ran very high…

Mr. Pickwick's knife and fork fell from his hand…

Chapter 16: Too Full of Adventure to be Briefly Described

The coach rattled through the well-paved streets…

'And what sort of a place have you got?'…

'What had better be done, then?'…

Having settled these preliminaries…

Like all Mr. Pickwick's determinations…

An hour and a half elapsed…

Chapter 17: Showing That an Attack of Rheumatism…

The Parish Clerk: A Tale of True Love

A prettier foot, a gayer heart…

The circumstance which directed his thoughts…

Chapter 18: Briefly Illustrative of Two Points…

There appears nothing very tremendous…

So, as the hysterics were still hovering about…

Mr. Pickwick would in all probability…

Chapter 19: A Pleasant Day With an Unpleasant Termination

'Stop, Sam,' said Mr. Pickwick…

Mr. Tupman's process…

'This is delightful – thoroughly delightful!'…

'Who are you, you rascal?'…

Chapter 20: Showing How Dodson and Fogg Were Men of Business…

'Nice men these here, Sir,'…

'Here is the entry,'…

At first the evolutions of the stout man…

'Well, what do you think of what your father says, Sam?'

The puffy-faced young man rose…

Chapter 21: In Which the Old Man…

I knew another man…

The Old Man's Tale About the Queer Client

Winter came, and with it weeks of cold and heavy rain…

Although for many weeks after this…

The tale told itself at once...

The implacable animosity of Heyling…

Chapter 22: Mr. Pickwick Journeys to Ipswich…

'I am happy in the prospect of your company, Sir,'…

With such conversation…

Mr. Pickwick congratulated the fortunate owner…

The bedsteads stood one on each side of the door…

Now, although Mr. Pickwick was not actuated by any definite object…

Chapter 23: In Which Mr. Samuel Weller…

In the contemplative mood which these words had awakened…

Sam eyed his companion for a few seconds…

Chapter 24: Wherein Mr. Peter Magnus…

Mr. Pickwick had taken a few strides…

We do not mean to assert…

'Muzzle!' said the magistrate.

While these resolute and determined preparations…

The shopkeepers of the town…

Chapter 25: Showing, Among a Variety of Pleasant Matters…

'Grummer,' said Mr. Nupkins…

Mr. Pickwick had a great deal more to say…

As the narrative proceeded…

When Mrs. Nupkins dried up her tears…

'Well, here's a game!' cried Sam.

When Mr. Pickwick arrived at this point…

Chapter 26: Which Contains a Brief Account…

'Hold your noise – do – you naughty creetur!'…

Sam understood all this, of course…

Chapter 27: Samuel Weller Makes a Pilgrimage…

The appearance of the red-nosed man…

'They're alvays a-doin' some gammon of that sort, Sammy,'…

Chapter 28: A Good-Humoured Christmas Chapter…

And now the bugle plays a lively air as the coach rattles…

Meanwhile, Mr. Pickwick and his friends…

A happy party they were…

'Mr. Miller,' said Mr. Pickwick to his old acquaintance…

If anything could have added to the interest…

'I'm a-going to tell you,' replied Mr. Weller…

Now, the screaming had subsided…

A Christmas Carol

Chapter 29: The Story of the Goblins…

'It was the echoes,' said Gabriel Grub…

At last the game reached to a most exciting pitch…

At these words, the cloud was dispelled…

Chapter 30: How the Pickwickians Made and Cultivated…

The arrival of the two new visitors…

While Mr. Pickwick was delivering himself…

The clay upon so much of Mr. Pickwick's coat…

Chapter 31: Which Is All About the Law…

Here Mr. Jackson cast his eye on the parchment…

Mr. Pickwick slept little that night…

The relation of this affecting incident…

It was an uncarpeted room…

These tokens of the Serjeant's presentiments…

Chapter 32: Describes, Far More Fully…

'Oh, it isn't any inconvenience,' replied the little woman…

Mr. Snodgrass, who entered last…

After supper, another jug of punch…

At this point the remainder of the guests interposed…

Chapter 33: Mr. Weller the Elder…

The brandy-and-water luke…

Mr. Weller resumed his pipe with critical solemnity…

As the elder Mr. Weller entertained…

There is little doubt that Mr. Weller…

Any further observations…

Chapter 34: Is Wholly Devoted To a Full and Faithful Report…

Mr. Justice Stareleigh…

The ushers again called silence…

Serjeant Buzfuz, who had proceeded…

A visible impression was produced…

Meanwhile Mrs. Cluppins…

'Now, Mr. Winkle,' said Mr. Skimpin…

Now, if the unfortunate Mr. Phunky…

Hereupon there was a general laugh…

'I have no objection to admit, my Lord,'…

Chapter 35: In Which Mr. Pickwick Thinks…

The gentleman with the whiskers hummed a tune…

Nothing worthy of special mention occurred…

At the appointed hour, Mr. Pickwick and his friends…

Bath being full…

At this anecdote his Lordship laughed very heartily…

Chapter 36: The Chief Features of Which Will be Found…

The True Legend of Prince Bladud

It is an old prerogative of kings…

Just as the clock struck three…

Chapter 37: Honourably Accounts for Mr. Weller's Absence…

Crossing the greengrocer's shop…

The man in blue being a light-haired…

Mr. Whiffers's address was responded to…

Chapter 38: How Mr. Winkle…

'Well!' said Mr. Winkle…

'My dear friend,' said Mr. Ben Allen…

The mirth of Mr. Bob Sawyer was rapidly ripening into the furious…

About half-past twelve o'clock…

Chapter 39: Mr. Samuel Weller, Being Intrusted…

Sam continued to sit on the large stone…

Sam ruminated for a few moments…

Flattering as these professions of good feeling were…

After an absence of five or ten minutes…

While these things were going on…

Chapter 40: Introduces Mr. Pickwick…

But this Sam flatly and positively…

'Aha, my dear sir,' said the little man…

This was a room of specially dirty appearance…

The hackney-coach jolted along Fleet Street…

Chapter 41: What Befell Mr. Pickwick…

In the galleries themselves…

As Sam concluded…

This figure was the first to perceive…

Unwilling to hazard another quarrel…

Chapter 42: Illustrative, Like the Preceding One…

After breakfasting in a small closet…

Subsequent occurrences confirmed…

The matter was soon arranged, as the turnkey had foretold…

Turning these things in his mind…

Jingle delivered this singular summary of his prospects in life…

Chapter 43: Showing How Mr. Samuel Weller…

Now, the place where this discourse occurred…

'I remember, gentlemen,' said Mr. Pell…

'Well, now,' said Sam…

Meanwhile, Sam, having been formally introduced…

By the time the officer arrived…

Chapter 44: Treats of Divers Little Matters…

'One night he wos took very ill…'

The above short dialogue took place as Mr. Weller…

'After that, we went into Chancery…'

There was something so very abrupt and unsettled…

He had sat ruminating about the matter for some time…

Chapter 45: Descriptive of an Affecting Interview…

Here the old gentleman shook his head from side to side…

After Mrs. Weller and the red-nosed gentleman…

During the delivery of the oration…

During the whole of this time…

The area formed by the wall in that part of the Fleet…

Chapter 46: Records a Touching Act…

The above examination of a child of tender years…

However, there was no help for it…

The waiter was at once despatched…

Chapter 47: Is Chiefly Devoted to Matters…

Punctually at the appointed hour next morning…

Mr. Pickwick, whose face had been undergoing…

As Sam Weller spoke, he threw the door open…

Mr. Pickwick's nature was a good deal worked upon…

Chapter 48: Relates How Mr. Pickwick…

While these observations were being exchanged…

'Stop a moment, ma'am,' said Bob Sawyer…

This reminded Mr. Bob Sawyer…

At length, when this determination had been announced…

Chapter 49: Containing the Story…

I don't quite recollect how many tumblers of whiskey-toddy…

There might be a dozen of them…

As the guard spoke, there all at once appeared…

At present, however, his thoughts were occupied…

Now, my uncle was always remarkable for great boldness…

'You will never leave me,' murmured the young lady.

Chapter 50: How Mr. Pickwick Sped…

Mr. Pickwick might very probably have reasoned himself…

During this short interchange of sentiments…

The delicate nature of this commission…

Deprived of the young lady's society…

'Did you speak, Sir?' inquired Mr. Winkle…

Chapter 51: In Which Mr. Pickwick Encounters…

Expatiating upon this learned and remarkable theory…

'And how are matters going on in Eatanswill?' inquired Mr. Pickwick…

Hole-And-Corner Buffery

This gentleman was shown into the room…

'The ribaldry of this miserable man is despicably disgusting,' said Pott…

Chapter 52: Involving a Serious Change…

Mr. Weller drew the household beauty closer to him…

While the old gentleman was thus engaged…

'Wery kind o' the old lady to think o' me,' said Sam…

Chapter 53: Comprising the Final Exit…

'Foolish fellow,' said Mr. Pickwick…

It was brief enough on Mr. Jingle's part.

There was a coolness about all this…

'If there’s law in England, sir,' said Dodson…

Chapter 54: Containing Some Particulars…

Having closed the room door…

Thus expressing himself, the little gentleman poked his snuff-box…

The fat boy, gradually recovering his former position…

At this point of the reconciliation…

'Dear me!' said Mr. Pickwick…

Chapter 55: Mr. Solomon Pell…

The messenger fortunately found Mr. Solomon Pell in court…

'What is the business upon which – um?'

'Hold hard there,' interposed the mottled-faced gentleman…

Wilkins Flasher, Esquire, now condescended…

Chapter 56: An Important Conference…

This here money,' said Sam…

'You give me no great encouragement to conclude what I have to say,'…

At the close of this declaration…

Arabella's tears flowed fast…

Chapter 57: In Which the Pickwick Club…

There were few preparatory arrangements…

Let us leave our old friend in one of those moments of unmixed happiness…
