Nicholas Nickleby


Nicholas Nickleby's father dies
unexpectedly after losing all of his money
in a poor investment. Nicholas, his mother
and his
younger sister, Kate, are forced to give up
their comfortable lifestyle in
Devonshire and travel to London to seek
the aid of their only relative,
Nicholas's uncle Ralph Nickleby.
Ralph, a cold and ruthless
businessman, has no desire to help
his destitute relations and
hates Nicholas, who reminds him of his
dead brother, on sight. He
gets Nicholas a low-paying job as
an assistant to Wackford Squeers,
who runs the school Dotheboys Hall in
Yorkshire. Nicholas is
initially wary of Squeers a very unpleasant
man with one eye
because he is gruff and violent towards
his young charges, but he
tries to quell his suspicions. As Nicholas
boards the stagecoach for
Greta Bridge, he is handed a letter by
Ralph's clerk, Newman Noggs.
A once-wealthy businessman, Noggs lost
his fortune, became a
drunk and had no other recourse but
to seek employment with Ralph,
whom he loathes. The letter expresses
concern for the innocent
young man and offers assistance if
Nicholas ever requires it. Once he
arrives in Yorkshire, Nicholas comes to
realise that Squeers is
running a scam: he takes in unwanted
children (most of whom
are illegitimate, crippled or deformed)
for a high fee, and
starves and mistreats his charges while
using the money sent by their
parents to pad his own pockets.
