He uses so many adjectives in his writing and together with verbs it really captures the reader’s imagination. Of all the characters in "Great Expectations" it is Pip that demands sympathy the most. In my opinion I think that Dickens does extremely well to generate the significant amount of sympathy that he does for Pip. He also manages to create a certain amount of sympathy for some of the other characters as well. Overall I feel that “Great Expectations” is a great novel that is well written with diverse and complex themes throughout.

Dickens' Great Expectations In the novel 'Great Expectations', Charles Dickens writes in first person narrative text, he does this so that the reader only gets the story for the eyes of at the beginning young Pip. This is a very clever way of writing and it lets the reader read the story through the eyes of a young boy and later on in the novel a man. This allows Dickens to exaggerate a lot at the beginning because the story is told by a young boy who will see every thing exaggerated, this is good when dickens is trying to set the mood at that precise moment and he uses this power through out the novel where he makes parts more frightening for the reader either though it would be frightening for most people reading the book in this situation. Charles Dickens also uses events from his own childhood to help him write the novel and the novel is based around where he grew up. He also adds more fear for the reader by exaggerating because he had a rough childhood himself.
His writings significantly changed when his family went to prison for being in debt. At the time there were a lot of problems going on in England which led him to writing diverse novels including: Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, and Bleak House. He not only helped England by bringing their social problems to attention but he also made a huge impact on people’s life in the 1800s. Charles Dickens portrays the social problems in England through his characters and settings revealing his own life as a poor child. Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, the son of John and Elizabeth Dickens.
His name is Fagin. Mr. Fagin also is the name of a man who helped Dickens in the blacking factory during his childhood. Although the names are the same, these two Fagin men are different. In the novel, Fagin is seen as a type of villain, whereas in the shoe-shine factory, Fagin helped and taught Charles his everyday work. Dickens’ time spent at the blacking factory was the worst time of his entire life.
Due to reach personal experience Dickens managed to create vivid images of all kinds of people: kind and cruel ones, of the oppressed and the oppressors. Deep, wise psychoanalysis, irony, perhaps some of the sentimentalism place the reader not only in the position of spectator but also of the participant of situations that happen to Dickens’ heroes. Dickens makes the reader to think, to laugh and to cry together with his heroes throughout his books. “David Copperfield” was Dickens' favorite creation. The novel reflects writer’s own life – his autobiography.
He made a reasonable amount of money but was poor in handling his financial endeavors. In 1824, when the family plunged into debt, John was sent to debtors' prison at Marshalsea Prison. Charles, at age twelve, was sent to a Warren's Blacking House, to manufacture shoe polish. In The Man Charles Dickens, Edward Wagenknect looks at how Charles' experience with the blacking house had a deep impact on him: Charles seems to have been at this time, abnormally sensitive with some dim prescience of what was in store for him, and he suffered terribly, not only from his uncomfortable surroundings, but even more from the consciousness that he was getting no opportunity to develop his capacities and -... ... middle of paper ... ...t drawn to portraying children beset by suffering and evil" (117). Dickens also created these characters to testify to the mistreatment of children in Victorian society.
The Life of Charles Dickens Reflected in Great Expectations "I must entreat you to pause for an instant, and go back to what you know of my childish days, and to ask yourself whether it is natural that something of the character formed in me then" - Charles Dickens Charles Dickens is well known for his distinctive writing style. Few authors before or since are as adept at bringing a character to life for the reader as he was. His novels are populated with characters who seem real to his readers, perhaps even reminding them of someone they know. What readers may not know, however, is that Dickens often based some of his most famous characters, those both beloved or reviled, on people in his own life. It is possible to see the important people, places, and events of Dickens' life thinly disguised in his fiction.
Which helped him in writing Oliver Twist. Around the time he began to write A Tale of Two Cities he was going through a divorce. Writing this book made him feel like a better person. Dickens mostly wrote about poverty that he had seen and experienced in his life. At the age of 12 dickens father, John Dickens, was sent to prison for not paying his debt.
After his father went to prison, at the age of twelve, Charles had to go to work for a few months as a warehouse employee, blackening shoes and putting labels on boxes. During this period in his life, (while his father was in jail) was painful for him and is later influenced in some of his writings such as the novel David Copperfield. His father was the inspiration of one of the characters, Mr. Micawber. Charles Dickens never had much of the opportunity to be a child. Many of his novels such as Oliver Twist and Philip Pirrip express the struggles he faced growing up.
