Dombey and Son is a novel with the full title Dealings with the Firm of Dombey and Son: Wholesale, Retail and for Exportation by Charles Dickens.First published in monthly parts between October 1846 and April 1848, it tells the story of Paul Dombey a heartless London merchant who runs his domestic affairs as he runs his business. In his daily life there is no room for dealing with emotions because emotion has no market value. In his son he sees the future of his firm and the continuation of his name, while he neglects his affectionate daughter, until he decides to get rid of her beloved, a lowly clerk. But Dombey's weakness is his pride, and he falls prey to the treacherous flattery of others. Combining an intricate plot, vivid language, and Dickens's customary social commentary, this is another classic from the master novelist.Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced.
