David Copperfield and Peggotty

David Copperfield and Peggotty

 

Peggotty is David's warmhearted, devoted nurse. Upon being introduced to her David’s Aunt Betsey inquires indignantly, “Do you mean to say child, that any human being has gone into a Christian church, and got herself named ‘Peggotty!’”
