Yanfei Hai


Charles Dickens (1812-1870) is the founder of the English realistic criticism in the 19th century. Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club is the first novel of Dickens. It uses the contemprary life as the writing material and regards the ordinary people as the hero in the novel, which makes the contribution to the English literature. This thesis analyzes on civilian consciousness which reflected in this comedy so as to understand Dickens’ thoughts deeply.
