Departmental Bulletin Paper The neglected child of Dickens’ Bleak House

イアン, S.ギャラカー

  In this paper, Charles Dickens’ literary technique of using minor characters to make a social criticism about society whilst maintaining their importance in the novel through plot interconnectivity is examined. Dickens had a particular strength of forcing the plight of his downtrodden characters, in this paper the young chimney sweep Jo Toughey is examined, and forcing the reader to take notice of the social injustice that existed in Victorian England and thus generated sympathy and awareness for the level of poverty that was a daily feature of life in London.
