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!!
http://writersdigest.com/If 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. http://www.writersdigest.com/contests/sh…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
