How Many Books Did Dickens Write

In the book Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, how does Pip change by the end of the book.

I need this answered with many details and I have to write a essay with at least 250 words. Its due Monday and I have to cramp other homework before then. Any help would be great!

Heres a great link showing how Pip matures throughout the novel. It should give you a few details :)Hope I helped, and good luck with the essay!…

How did Charles Dickens influence the world around him. Does he continue to influence the world today.

I know Charles Dickens wrote a lot of books, many of which are classics. I was wondering what he influenced specifically. Were the poor laws ever changed in response to “Oliver Twist”? Were any of the social issues he highlighted in his books ever revised or corrected?Or was his influence merely…

By the late 19th century we see the growth of labor unions and all kinds of laws designed to improve the lot of the urban poor: universal education, the 8-hour day, workplace safety, unemployment benefits, retirement benefits, and other things we often take for granted.We also see the growth of socialist philosophies and movements at the same time.Dickens’s voice was one of many, but a very loud one, that helped bring about these changes.If you want a more specific example, look at Christmas. Prior to the publication of “A Christmas Carol” December 25 was both a regular work day and a school day–not a holiday. With this and his later Xmas stories, Dickens almost single-handedly made December 25 a holiday.

How is Dickens’ “Hard Times” inaccurate historically.

How does Charles Dickens’ book “Hard Times” inaccurately portray London between 1840-1900?

Charles Dickens wrote “Hard Times” during the 1840s and is supposed to represent what was happening during the industrial revolution. You need to read between the lines and read his discriptions, he describes many things like machinery.

How do i get a short storie i wrote published..

I have written a few short stories and i was woungering how to get it published!! you are serious about wanting your stories published the link above can help. Since you have more than one short story they could be published into one book. Many authors have done this such as: Stephen King & Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Dickens. Short stories do not have to be published separately from each other. You can have your own book of ‘shorts’. Just present your manuscript in that manner. There are also plenty of writing contests going on which are a great way to get your work out with the chance to win a publishing contract. The following link will take you to a short story contest.…Best Wishes!

How do i get started on writing a novel.

Im only a teenager but i have so many creative stories i could write but i never can get started on writing a book, more than a page long. Give me some edvice please.

Don’t you know that the Great American Novel always begins with, “It was a dark and stormy night – – – “?Many years ago,, when I was in Viet Nam serving with the 101st Airborne, part of my training actually included instructions on how to properly tell a war story to the folks back home.I was taught all good war stories must begin with the words, “There I was – – – “.All kidding aside, write about something YOU are familiar with.Observe the people around you and write about them.Edgar Allen Poe and Stephen King wrote about their nightmares, and became famous.Samuel Langhorn Clemens (Mark Twain) wrote about his boyhood.Charles Dickens wrote about the poverty and injustices he observed in his society.

Charles Dickens basic questions.

1. how many novels did charles dickens write in the course of his life?2. what was his pen name?3. which novel is more of a biography of dickens’ life than a work or fiction?4. in what form were his novels and stories published?thanks.

1. Around 20, though a few of the Christmas books were quite short.2. Boz3. _David Copperfield_4. Often serialized–readers would wait for the monthly installment, and when they had them all the would bind them together as a book. Of course, they were also published as separate volumes, as books are today. Sometimes they were triple deckers (three volumes constituting one story).

Charles Dickens and other authors.

How does Charles Dickens writing style compare to other authors, especially with his style used in great expectations.

Compared to the prevalent style of the Victorian period, romanticism, Charles Dickens novels were more in the category of realism. For one thing, lacking in this story was a sense of nostalgia, or yearning for the past. Looking at other popular Victorian writers such as the Brontes and George Elliot, you often find characters searching for a return to old values, rather than looking forward to new technology. In Great Expectations, we see Pip actually reject his traditional lifestyle, and move to the city to make his own way in the world.In addition, almost every Dickens novel has political undertones. Dickens was critical of the government, the aristocracy, the educational system, the courts, and beauracracy in general. Other writers steered toward love stories and even seemed to purposely leave out political commentary, such as in Jane Eyre, where the West Indian colonies are mentioned quite a bit, but not slavery. I would look closely at G.E. for a political message.Finally, Dickens writing is notoriously descriptive, even downright graphic in his depictions of the poor and their living styles. It doesn’t show up as much in G.E. as it does in Bleak House for example, but his style is very raw and refreshing. He doesn’t try to romanticize his characters or hide their flaws.Finally, his writing style is very simple and to the point compared to authors such as George Elliot or William Faulkner. Many of his books are read in schools, even by young children. They are accessible to people on many reading levels, yet the content is very rich with hidden meaning.Hope this helps somwhat

  1. Ebbie Scrooge and no.

  2. um…not sure i understand the question. you read the book, find out what kind of “report” the teacher wants; expository, factual, essay, analysis, etc., and then you write a report. maybe watch a couple of the movies just to give you different perspectives.

  3. I haven’t read much Dickens (yes I know it is sad), but I do know this. When he wrote Oliver Twist he wrote it as a very sad story, but also funny. Oliver Twist is about how ridiculous people were back then and how terrible they treated children like Oliver. But in a crazy way he made it funny. You would think that a story like that would only be dark and miserable, but he put a little humor in it.I think he exposed the poor living conditions and possibly got them changed. They really did not have much of a middle class as we do. You were either filthy rich or dirt great expectations, I’m sorry, not trying to be mean. It is the best way to find out and a great book.

  4. Well, if you are in school, you could talk to your English teacher and ask her is she can get them sent into the Anthology of Short Stories.

  5. [/DELDUP]Try Wikipedia!! It works! I had a project last week and we had to write about a specific person, and one of my friends had Charles Dickens, so try Wiki, and see if that works for noooowww!!!

  6. His influence has certainly continued into modern times by forcing generations of students to read the works of the great man, and not necessarily for the best mark-wise 🙁

  7. Read what you wrote above and see what you can find that is wrong with it.

  8. All kids are influenced by the world. The expectation from the non-religious is that kids who have grown up in a religious home will be different. One of the problems is the exposure to worldly temptation that all of us face. It gets much more difficult to resist temptation when you allow it to saturate you. For instance, the media is completely dominated by sexual innuendo. You can’t go anywhere without something popping up. What do you do? Watch it or turn away? Same with any worldly desire. Our society has allowed the worldly desires to become routine for us all day long. Just compare TV today to what was shown 50 years ago. And worst of all, most people do not compensate for it by turning it off or tuning it out and getting into the one thing that brings cleansing — the Word of God. But have hope. Those who do stray and have had a basic religious training will be more likely to one day return to their roots once they sow their wild oats.

  9. There always were a few things that stuck out to me about Dickens:

  10. 3. Serialized. His novels, large, heavy and good for burdening students with were originally released in serial. You can really see that because certain characters will fade in and out of importance (with the public/Dickens’s interest) and rather than the slower novels we see today of an always steady incline of tension and then a climax – the serialized novel was more like a TV show with Dickens’s trying to put enough punch at the the end of each chapter to make the reader want to buy the magazine again the next time his story was printed.

  11. His novels were serialized in popular magazines.

  12. Go to It’s a self-publishing website that will publish your work for free. They will also help you sell it for a small fee.

  13. It’s honestly a lot easier to get a whole manuscript published than a short story. There aren’t that many markets for one story. But here is a good idea for you. There are dozens and dozens of anthologies being published these days. They usually revolve around a specific genre. Like all vampire stories or all zombie stories. They usually read a lot of material and choose a certain number of stories for their anthology. Each one has different guidelines regarding the length of the story etc. The thing is – they do not pay much. Usually you make 5 – 25 bucks plus a few copies of the book. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it;s a foot in the door. Some very successful authors have gotten started that way. It gets their name and work known – then they go on to publish novels. But – without knowing your genre, I don’t know what anthologies to recommend to you. Why don’t you e mail me at [email protected] and tell me just the genre and I will give you some leads. You too LAgurl. Pax – C

  14. brainstormAside from fixing your spelling, you can look into literary magazines, local newspapers, or even school newspapers. Check with your local library, they will have all the info you need.make a listGood Luck!

  16. Girl, you are SO busted. LOL! Okay, I finshed that essay in June and i wrote that Pip’s fear for the escaped Convict was replaced with respect and compassion and that the more he learned the dark secrets of his friends’ lives, the more he seemed responsible for them, and that makes him MATURE!! I’ll see you when school starts!

  17. Also check the submissions guidelines for each publisher before submitting, very important you do so or else you’ll be automatically rejected.XoXo Alex, Ur guide 2 Q’z!

  18. Wow!!! What youthful skills! when I study issues like this it supplies me such wish for a manner forward for literature 🙂 a pair of issues: a million. while Helena yelled at Nyla she pronounced ” How dare you disobey my orders!?” 2 punctuation marks at the instant are not frequently professional looking, so p.c.. one or the different. you comprehend i admire exclamation factors, lol, so its an issue for me too. 2. The call nyla makes me think of of ny and l. a.. (ny and l. a.). this would possibly not be an issue for everybody, yet only telling you my opinion 3. extreme description isn’t needed in each and every sentence. that’s sturdy you’re giving us a vibrant image, yet simplicity is golden. The e book looks great. Is Nyla a canine? that feels like a exciting twist!

  19. I think what I am trying to say is that other authors would focus on the bad and only in the bad. Charles Dickens managed to crate a light in the darkness.

  20. 2. Realism. He was coming after the Romantics and at a time when I personally was reading the Gothics. In comparison to these two movements, Dickens’s writing (while still holding onto some of the romanticism of his predecessors) was predominantly concerned with showing the “unseen” and “ugly” levels of society as they were.

  21. 1. Description. The man talked forever about streets and buildings and things that seemed irrelevant (they’re not if you look for overarching themes/messages).

  22. Charles Dickens is incredibly descriptive to the environment surrounding his characters, he writes of the darkness and thick air, as he was against child labour he made all his descriptions reflect the depressive grimy times.

  23. We really have it good. I think Dickens was the voice of the common folk.

  24. Start by reading the book.

  25. Since he wrote about his own city and his own time I’m surprised by that.

  26. i need that same question answered good luck! If I hear anything I will let you know, good luck!

  27. David Copperfield is considered to be biographical although parts of his life appear in other novels like Oliver Twist, which describes an orphan. You can find a list of his books at the following site:

  28. I was born in America and I cringe when friends talk about conditions in other countries today. A friend lives in the Middle East and has a toilet that is a hole with a place to stand over or crouch over.
