Charles Dickens Connotations

112 Words1 Page
I will be focusing my attention on various types of normality different characters in this novel pursue. Since normality is a polysemic word which assumes different connotations depending on the views and opinions of each person; it is without a doubt “a mere context dependent social construct (Freud, 333)” . In essence, what is normal for someone may not be normal for someone else. For this reason, it is easier to define what is not normal than what is. Not-normal means different and although being different is not always a bad thing, it usually has negative connotations, as we will see happening in Cloisterham; the town in which Dickens situated his story.
