Such writers, often depicts the themes of socio-economic conflict by contrasting the living conditions of the poor with those of the upper classes in urban as well as rural society. This realistic movement can too be seen in a philosophical way. In Russia one of the major contributors to realist literature was Fyodor Dostoyevsky whose novel Crime and Punishment illustrates core principles of realism. Crime and Punishment replaced the classy style of Romanticism with fictional realism. Dostoyevsky depicts a world full of segregation and division between social classes.
Thomas Hardy closely witnessed the social institutions and problems of his society in the nineteenth century, and his novels frankly deal with various social institutions and honestly address social problems within the confines of his art. In Victorian England religious and social institutions such as church, family and marriage were deeply rooted in patriarchy. True to its nature patriarchy automatically limited women and privileges men. Victorian society, dominated as it was by patriarchal ideology, restricted women physically and mentally, and severely limited their economic opportunities as well. Therefore, women suffered from severe economic and social debilities.

ABSTRACT The topic for my term paper is 'Radical criticism of English society in Charles Dickens 's Great Expectations. ' As Victorian era was full of topics related to middle-class people, this was one the main theme as well as the problem that people were often countered with. Charles Dickens 's works were mostly based on the cut-throat problems of the Victorian era. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, published in 1860, is another attempt to show the same satire through his excellent of the plot, characters and his narrative techniques. Through the protagonist, that is, Pip he shows the desire of a common village boy to do exceptionally well in his life and put himself up in social status.
At the same time when Britain was the main governmental and financial strength of the planet, Dickens outlined the life span of the overlooked bad and disadvantaged in the centre of empire. Through his writing he campaigned on particular problems — for example the and also sanitation — in changing view regarding type inequalities, but his hype was possibly even more effective. He bound the general public authorities and organizations that permitted such violations to occur and frequently represented the exploitation and repression of poor people. Their fiction, with frequently brilliant descriptions of existence in nineteenth-century England, has inaccurately and anachronistically arrived at internationally represent Victorian culture (1837-1901) as evenly "Dickensian," when actually, his books ' time period is in the 1780s for the 1860s. Within the decade pursuing his death in 1870, a far more extreme level of philosophically and socially cynical views spent English hype; such styles were to the spiritual belief that eventually kept together also the bleakest of Dickens 's books as opposed.
Dickens reflected impact and aspect of misery on the society in that period. Also he reflected social aspects of the society including of the poor, peasant, workers, landlords, the rich and the state. He wrote essays about his experiments and investigations in the parliament. In this novel, Dickens emphasized the Utilitarian education, the arrogance of the middle and upper class, and the industrial revolution. Every character got into difficulty in this novel.
SOCIAL AND MORAL VIEW OF VICTORIAN SOCIETY THROUGH THE GREAT EXPECTATIONS This project is about the social and moral view of Victorian society through the author of many highly-acclaimed novels Charles Dickens. Social view is basically relating to society or its organisation and moral is concerned with the principles of right and wrong behaviour. Dickens was not only the first great novelist in England, but he was also a great reflector and critic of economic, social and moral life of Victorian era. He showed empathy towards the ignored and disadvantaged segments of the English society, and contributed to several important social reforms. In Dickens' work, it is frequently very hard for characters to know for certain what class individuals have a place
Consequently, in the 1830s, when Charles Dickens was writing Oliver Twist, it is justifiable that elements of both realism and romanticism can be found in the novel. This paper serves to investigate the sentimental aspects as well as the contrasting realistic aspects in Oliver Twist. Undoubtedly, these two effects are paradoxical; while realism is meant to show the harsh and filthy living and working conditions of the poor population, sentimentalism deals with emotions and triggers compassion from the readers. To combine these two techniques causes mixed feelings amongst readers. Are they supposed to be shocked by the social situation?
