  • Charles Dickens Modernism

    the writers and novelists to preach to a wider audience. Contrary to popular belief, the Victorians enjoyed a much more varied, richer, and freer literature than readers in the 20th century. The Victorian writers shared a need to unfold the social struggles of the time. They all had something in common. Charles Dickens’ was no exception as he fed into, “the typical conversion of the great Victorian moves is not a religious conversion but a turning from self-regard to love and social responsibility,” (Hardy 49). This social responsibility was always present in Dickens’ work. Though his characters start out in a negative view they change for the better and give the audience a platform to see when it comes to social responsibility. A Christmas Carol is a perfect representation of this with the character Scrooge. In contrast, the modernists had T.S. Eliot’s social activism with his Waste Land, “it is about the decay of culture in modern Western society when many consider present experience as chaotic…(Crews 19).

  • Ignorance In A Christmas Carol

    A Christmas Carol “Ignorance and want are man’s children and for the time being ignorance has doom of you, written upon his brow.”(Dickens 26) Ignorance consumes a man and all he is worth.
