Naming the novel in this manner reminds the audience every time they think about the novel that the court system in the novel impacts those who are ordinary as well. In essence, Dickens artfully uses several types of language to portray the evils of the Victorian court system through the Chancery Court in Bleak House. Though political language aims to “ .
Charles Dickens was an English writer born in the 1800’s. Dickens named this book A Tale of Two Cities because it is a parallel between London and Paris. In A Tale of Two Cities, there are many wrongs done by peasants who want to do right. Dickens is very descriptive partly to get across the idea of mans inhumanity towards man. Charles Dickens creates scenes like the guillotine, the use of the blue flies analogy and Madame Defarge’s hate stricken heart to develop the theme of mans inhumanity to fellow man.
In Dickens' novel Our Mutual Friend, a satire is created where the basis of the novel is the mockery against money and morals. Throughout this novel, multiple symbols and depictions of the characters display the corruption of the mind that surrounds social classes in Victorian England. Our Mutual Friend, Dickens' last novel, exposes the reality Dickens is surrounded by in his life in Victorian England. The novel heavily displays the corruption of society through multiple examples. These examples, that are planted within the novel, relate to both the society in Dickens' writing and his reality.
Cruelty, blood, and gore are all accurate descriptions of the French Revolution. This horrific time is correctly represented by the twisted and elaborate plot of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. During this time, pity and sympathy leave the hearts of both the revolutionaries and the aristocrats. The hatred felt by the revolutionaries towards their oppressors seizes control of their hearts and results in more ruthless and savage behavior towards their old persecutors. Man, himself, becomes a more brutal race in this time of animosity.
This is a constant feature throughout the novel and not only pokes fun but reveals the terrible treatment of orphans and the anti-Semitism, which culminates in the stereotypical Jew- Fagin, at the time this book was written. This book is a true classic of 19th century fiction. Irony is present throughout Oliver Twist and is one of the main literary devices that Dickens uses. Dickens uses a lot of really sharp irony in Oliver Twist to satirize the various institutions (the parish workhouse system, the justice system, the poor laws, etc.) that he thought were inhumane and unjust.
During the time when he lived, Dickens recognized many evils in society. In Great Expectations he focused on the problem of the whole idea of a class in society. It was a social commentary on society. His way to illustrate the solution to the problem of class in society was "to create characters who can get beyond the limitations and divisions of class identifications and see themselves as responsible humans. "2 The people who read Dickens' works were often the kinds of people he was attacking.
Charles Dickens' Exploration of the Victorian Society's Awful Treatment Of The Children Of The Poor In Victorian times life was very hard for the poor. The rich looked down on them when mostly they didn't understand the hardships the poor had to face in day-to-day life. The industrial revolution led to rapid growth of cities, which meant poor housing and great overcrowding occurred making the poor people's live worse. The French Revolution created fear in Britains Government causing a stronger justices system and the poor law. The poor law said that poor people were to be provided for by the workhouse.
Through narrative, scenes, and dialogue, the reader starts to consider both the aristocrats and the downtrodden as one and the same in moral and political culpability. Charles Dickens strongly believes that the French Revolution was inevitable because the aristocracy had exploited and plundered the poor until they were driven to extreme measures. Nowhere is that more evident than in Dickens’ portrayal of the Marquis St. Evremonde. This nobleman is the poster-child of selfish privilege. He is uncaring and has no respect for life.
Examples of Lord Farquaad's evil side is when he tortures the gingerbread man, when he dumps all the fairytale creatures in Shrek's swamp, he gets the knights to try and beat up Shrek and when he sees what Princess Fiona looks like when the sun goes down he says 'Get that out of my sight' and because he wants to become king so bad he says the marriage is legal. The story of Shrek uses presentational devices to reverse our expectations, so that by the end of the film the viewers know that 'Shrek' is a modern fairytale, because the characters of Lord Farquaad and Shrek have been switched. What I learnt from this story is that the times are changing and that fairytales are becoming modern and all the characters are switched or the story plots change.

Dickens saw faults in an event that was vital to Europe and France’s history and future. He elaborates and links each fault through his themes. Both the antagonistic classes commit acts of unjust humanity and foul treatment. These acts are seen through the guillotine, LaForce, the wine shop, and the peasants’ state of poverty.
