Compose a 1750 words assignment on descriptions presented by dickenss through his works as per the residential segregation in london. Needs to be plagiarism free! Charles Dickens has been considered as the greatest novelist from the Victorian era producing some of the most recognizable characters and descriptions in English literature (The New York Times, 2007). Another measure of Dickens’s popularity is that his work has not gone out of print even today (Swift, 2007). One potent reason for Dickens’s success is his use of vivid realism in order to paint realistic pictures of Victorian England. Most of Dickens’s work is set in or around London, though there are other works that have been construed in settings that are more industrial. Reflections from Dickens’s work can be utilized in order to paint a geographical picture of London from the Victorian era. This technique of geographical survey has been on the rise and has produced unique observations that would have been otherwise secluded from public view. This paper will attempt to analyze the various views and descriptions presented by Dickens through his works as per the residential segregation in the city of London. The various facets of urban and social life expressed in the divisions of residential neighborhoods will allow the creation of a reasonable picture as per Victorian London’s geography. Furthermore, the first three novels provide a continuous picture of London’s public geography under evolution. Other works such as A Tale of Two Cities (1858 / 59) are based partly on London and partly elsewhere so these are not being included for discussion.
The onset of the Industrial Revolution affected life in all forms and manners including the urban landscapes. The population of Great Britain grew by 102% between 1801 and 1851 to approach eighteen million souls. The rapid pace of industrialization bolstered the economy on one hand and left millions in misery on the other hand. This image of misery has been a hallmark of Victorian literature and the ensuing geographical inferences gathered from it.
