King & Country

Another of Dickens most memorable characters, the nattily attired Micawber in the company of his long-suffering spouse, Emily as they take a stroll on the “Streets of Olde London”. In popular culture, Micawber was famous for his many quotations.
Among the most famous is... “Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen pounds and six pence, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds naught and six, result misery!”

One of Charles Dickens most famous literary creations was Mr. Wilkins Micawber, a fictional character in his 1850 novel, ‘DAVID COPPERFIELD’. He was modelled on the author’s real father, John Dickens, who like Micawber was put into the ‘Debtors Prison’ after failing to meet his creditors’ demands.
