Plot summary ... Martin Chuzzlewit, novel by Charles Dickens, published serially under the pseudonym "Boz" from 1843 to 1844 and in book form in 1844. The story's protagonist, Martin Chuzzlewit, is an apprentice architect who is fired by Seth Pecksniff and is also disinherited by his own eccentric, wealthy Old Martin Chuzzlewit is a very rich man, but paranoid that everyone is after his money.
When Dickens tries to wrap everything in a neat little parcel at the end (as he always would) it really suffers as a result. «Voi sapete con altrettanta sicurezza di me che io giudico il Chuzzlewit la mia opera senza confronti migliore, sotto infiniti aspetti. Che io sono cosciente delle mie forze come mai prima d'ora.
