Charles Dickens, an author with many award winning novels and plays from the 19th century, used a different approach when creating his characters for his writings. In his historical novel, “A Tale of Two Cities,” Dickens uses characters who have a more skewed aspect to them with either more so protagonist views and values while some of their actions makes them appear also as an antagonist, and vice versa. He uses the passion of the characters in their development to make them an in between, so to speak, character, also known as monogamous. Throughout this novel, and many like it, characters are often categorized as protagonist or antagonists, but that doesn’t mean there are characters who are can be more so monogamous within “A Tale of Two Cities”; Charles Darnay, Jarvis Lorry, and Lucie Manette serve as prime examples of those subtle but no so subtle “in between” characters. Charles Darnay is one of the most intricate, diverse, obviously ambiguous character in “A Tale Of Two Cities”.
Generally, emotions direct our life. People cannot live without emotion. According to me, if a person hasn’t any emotion, he or she will become stoned-hearted. In this novel, Dickens emphasizes the Utilitarian education, the arrogance of the middle and upper class, and the industrial revolution. Every character gets into difficulty in this novel.
One of the most popular pieces in literature giving a position on psychological conditioning is Aldous Huxley’s satirical fiction novel, Brave New World. The author takes a strong position, imagining a world with a society completely subjected to psychological conditioning, with people having their life and jobs predetermined to make for a more stable society.

While bidding farewell to his teenage son, the famous British author, Thomas Browne, pulled him close, advising, “Think before you act; think twice before you speak” (Mieder, 820). Now, although the circumstances in which this statement was made are not entirely true, the quotation still conveys a significant idea: the presence of rationale and logic in decision making is crucial to avoiding the consequences of a choice. However, as beings of social and emotional nature, our cognitive process is often influenced by our feelings, therefore inciting emotionally impulsive actions. Throughout the literary works of William Golding and William Shakespeare, the main characters are often subject to the various consequences stemming from their emotionally-driven decisions. The unfortunate deaths of main characters are directly caused by the execution of impulsive decisions made by others.

These “great expectations” challenged his mental state and made one question his moral conducts. Was what he was doing right or wrong?
Furthermore, because he insists on secrecy, Magwitch’s structural role in the novel is to enable both Pip and the reader to be misled into assuming that Miss Havisham is the benefactor and, more importantly, into assuming that it is Miss Havisham who has ultimately destined Pip to be betrothed to Estella. As well as helping to drive the action of the entire novel, Magwitch also provides much of the tension and suspense that engage the reader’s interest in the opening chapters. On his first appearance, Magwitch is a desperate figure, prepared to cut the throat of a young child (Chapter 1, p.4). Dickens subtly maintains sympathy for him, however, by referring to his hunger, his various wounds and his uncontrollable shivering. His second meeting with Pip (Chapter 3, p.19) reveals a gentle and more gracious nature as he politely
Throughout Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist there is a constant combination of realism and fantasy which forms a surrealist melodrama created using intensely realistic descriptions. This extract from chapter ten is a good example of this alternating realism, as Dickens portrays Oliver as credulous and naive, possibly too naive to be compared to reality. Many critics believe that after growing up in the industrious and squalid environment which he is presented to of, it is more credible to believe that in reality Oliver would grow up to be more like the Artful Dodger or Noah Claypole. The purpose of this essay is to – through close analysis of this extract – asses whether Dickens’ intentions to attack the inequities of the 1834 poor law is effective
