Dickens’ Complex About the Poor Children



In the history of literature, Dickens is the first one who threw considerable energy into his creations of children. Reflecting life through children’s angle of view is a main characteristic of Dickens’ art of novels. Such as Oliver Twist in Oliver Twist, Florence and Paul in Dombey and Son, David Copperfield in David Copperfield, Pip in Great Expectation. Through these characters, we can learn of the family love, the educational system, the school, the bad teaching and so on. Especially, through these characters, we also can know more about the writer, his background, and his growth circumstance, etc.
