Characteristic of the artistic world of Charles Dickens

    The desire for an artistic cognition of the world in its diversity and contradictions; Criticism of social conditions and social institutions that condemn the person to suffering and humiliation; study of the depths of the human soul, its innate, ie, not dependent on the society of good and bad inclinations, its ability to self-transfiguration; the analysis of the “explicit” and “secret” springs of human actions; leitmotivnye images of children, in which human nature appears in its pure form, criminals, by whose example the writer examines evil in the human soul, and “eccentrics”, as a rule, personified the Christian ideals of charity and love; affirming the moral advantage of naive, gullible and disinterested characters over the bearers of a rationalistic pragmatic worldview; a pronounced comic beginning, based on the tradition of English humor and covering a wide range of laughter forms, ranging from mild humor to sharp satire; detailed descriptions of the appearance of the characters, their behavior and feelings; the tendency to schematize the depiction of characters due to the subordination of different qualities to one prevailing line down to its grotesque sharpening; the saturation of the narration with symbols, secondary art details and images of “spiritualized” things.
