COMPARISON OF THE NOVELS
David Copperfield tells us of his birth: He is born on a Friday night and begins to cry the moment the clock strikes midnight--an unlucky omen. But he is born with a caul (a sort of membrane covering a new-born's head), which is thought to be a good omen. He then tells his story of how his mother tried to sell the caul but with no joy. Then ten years later they raffled it off.
Frank McCourt tells the story of how he was born in New York and then brought up in Limerick in Ireland. Then the story continues of how they tried to cope with poverty and a lot of illness due to the damp.
Both stories are biographies, except McCourt's story is about his own experiences in life (which would be an autobiography) and Dickinson's story is of a character he has made up but they both tell the reader of their experiences through life. The happy times and the struggles in life it's self. They are very similar in many ways and both stories start at the beginning
