  • HELLO POOJA!

    I read your comment on my Paper-5. For that I would like to thank you for enhancing my confidence. You did good job by comparing “Natyashastra” and “Poetics”. You had presented very good points regarding comparison but I liked the last point that even a demon can get salvation. This thing differentiates these both texts. You have asked a question on my comparison of “Oliver Twist” and “Middlemarch”. Here is the answer: I have made comparison of these two texts by keeping in mind the SOCIETY which has been presented by Charles Dickens and George Eliot in their novels. Second thing the CHARACTERS that have been portrayed by both novelists. These are the two major points, on which I have focused more to compare both novels. I hope that this information would help you to understand this comparison. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR FINAL EXAM!

  • Respected Barad Sir,

    Here, I have written the answer of your question on my Presentation: Practical Comparison Between two Victorian novels: 'Oliver Twist' and 'Middlemarch'. I have compared these two texts by keeping in mind the SOCIETY which has been presented by Charles Dickens and George Eliot in their novels. Secondly, the CHARACTERS that have been portrayed by both novelists. These are the two major points, on which I have focused more to compare both the novels. The city life that Dickens has portrayed is rife with vices where the standards of morality are completely collapsed. But when we come across the narration of the country life in one of the chapters of 'Oliver Twist', it has been depicted as a peaceful place where the readers can also feel calmness and it is completely unlike the city life. In 'Middlemarch', Eliot has described the country life with the harshness of the society. The difference in the world view of both novelists is that Dickens have talked about universality by presenting the condition of the contemporary society whereas Eliot has described the psyche of the human mind to show particularly the IMAGE of that particular society. Both novelists have also presented the views of the Victorian people regarding the image of DEATH. When anybody comes across these two novels, he or she definitely marks the commonality of Dickens and the individuality of Eliot. Sir, I hope this answer would give sufficient information about your question and thank you so much Sir for asking me question because your questions enhance our knowledge a lot. We can't express this in WORDS.

  • Siddharth,
    Agree with Pooja Trivedi (challenging task.....) & Reema (voice is.... ).
    Well, both texts under comparative consideration belongs to 1830 (setting), same nation (England), same language (English), same culture/society (English). In such case where the theorist of comparative studies put no entry banner, how can you make difference as a comparatist? Say for instance, is there anything worthy of comparision in the portrayal of city (London) or county (province - Middlemarch) in both novels? What is the major difference in the worldview of both novelist when it comes to human predicament and death?

  • Hello siddharth! what a challanging task to comapre two books of the same age and belonging to ther same nation. It is literally impossible according to the prescribed rules and definitions of C.L. However, you drove it to the point. Congratulation for that. Can you send me the points of comparison so that it would be helpful to me... Thank You

  • Hey, Siddharth,
    All the presentations, are just excellent! The content of each one is powerful...
    your voice is as always audible as well as confident. Sometimes, you could not
    explain the point, but better luck next time... Still one more suggestion about your
    pronounciation that, though they are very clear, you forget the point in stressing
    the word sometimes, so avoid it next time.
    Best Wishes.

    -Reema
