Mrs. Crupp: Character Analysis in David Copperfield

Also Read

      Mrs. Crupp is David's land-lady in chambers in Adelphi. She is a stout lady with a flounce of flannel petticoat below a nankeen gown. She told Miss Betsey Trotwood that she would always yearn towards David as a son. She was a bad cook and has a prejudice against cooking fish and joking. She did not like Peggotty's coming and living with David. Then she gives up doing any service to David. After this Mrs. Crupp began to make pitfalls on the stairs with pitchers so that Peggotty might tumble down and break her legs. David finds it difficult to live in this state but was too afraid to see his way out of it. She stands for the base type of London landlady. Her name smells of strong liquor; it includes all dishonesty and uncleanliness.
