How did 19th Century British authors, such as Charles Dickens, portray
images of children in their literary works? How does Dickens portray
children, as in Oliver Twist and David Copperfield, as characters caught
up in an economic and political class struggle? Does Dickens use these
images of children to personalize these class struggles? Connecticut
