Citizens who married for love, and came from poverty were mostly those who suffered. They had filthy clothes, dirty faces and so called “lower class” accents. The industrial revolution caused, as mentioned earlier, great changes between the classes there were and made extreme differences between people`s behaviour, clothing and jobs just to mention a few. The scene in the film where David will be abandoned from his stepfather after his mum and baby brother died and being sent to work in a factory, shows the best example of how the industrial revolution influenced people`s behaviour. The way the leader in the factory talks to David shows the lack of trust and belief in poor people which developed during the industrialization.
The relationship of acute crisis in agriculture and the industrial crisis has made the economic depression worse, famers were angry with their government. The banks looked shaky and depositors wanted their money, making them shakier still, and in time many were forced to close. Factories and businesses got rid of large numbers of employees or closed down altogether, and soon there was no money to buy the farmer’s products or anything else and this causes people is inability to buy Agricultural products. “Farmers struggled with low prices all through the 1920s." Desperate bankers called in their loans, but farmers had no money to pay them and foreclosures and bankruptcy sales became daily events.

Newgate prison should not have continued more than 50 years because of the amount of death due to the environments out and inside. Due to lack of water, light, and diseases. From Daniel Defoe quote, “ The prison actually was an unhealthy place, which physicians partially refused to visit. It is said that people passing by the gaol held their noses and that some shopkeepers nearby had to close their stores for the summer, because of the incredible stench..”(Defoe 18)That proves even from the outside it’s morose due of its lack of sunlight and odor. From the inside view, so many bugs that can hear cracking of the ground, wall that has unpredictable things that are growing from, and lastly famed for its dark squalor, overcrowded, lice-ridden dungeons.

The two books Mrs.Dalloway by Virginia Woolf and Hard Times by Charles Dickens share the common theme of coincidence. Both Dickens and Woolf primarily use coincidence as a means to move the plot forward or create an unexpected twist or event like Sally Seton showing up at Clarissa 's party in Mrs.Dalloway or Cecilia and Rachael finding Stephen Blackpool in the Old Hell Shaft in Hard Times. The books often use chance in different ways such as the chance that Sir William Bradshaw shows up at Clarissa’s party to only bring news of Septimus’ death. While in Hard Times there is the illusion of coincidence in Blackpool 's lingering around the bank as it was robbed. Both authors use coincidence frequently through their books and in many different ways.
Bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to life, Lionel Bart’s musical, named Oliver, takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England. The audience joins the young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates the London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and - most importantly - for love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the immoral (but charismatic) Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin’s violent sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle of the drama is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill Skykes’ thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results.

The first impression of London conveyed through the character of “Arthur Clennam, while he is walking along, is that of melancholia and loneliness” (Foss, 2010) as suggested by the following lines, ‘melancholy streets in a penitential garb of soot…no pictures, no unfamiliar animals, no rare plants or flowers, no natural or artificial wonders of the ancient world…nothing to see but streets, streets, streets. Nothing to breathe but streets, streets, streets.’ (Dickens 1857: 43). This personification of the streets of “London as possessing human characteristics of sadness and randomness implies a living image of the city which is in sharp contrast to Marseilles (where the novel actually begins) where the stifling heat alludes to lifelessness and stagnancy” (Foss,
