Dickens Novels: Children and Childhood

Morley College, 61 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7HT
Late Starts Available

In the dramatic intensity of Charles Dickens’s novels it is frequently difficult to know where fiction begins and fact ends. This course examines Dickens’s portrayal of child characters against the social history of childhood in nineteenth century Britain.

The life of children including records about working conditions, housing, schooling, the treatment of orphans, the position of children in workhouses, different expectations regarding boys and girls, the idealisation of middle class childhood and the treatment of children within the legal system will all be compared with situations that occur in Dickens’s novels.

Consideration will be given Dickens's use of child characters to achieve dramatic and emotional intensity; to engage the reader; to create contrasts of perspective; and to generate interest in the treatment of children by society.

Tuesday: 18.00-19.30
