Julius H. Grey Ad.E

(Dickens aficionado)



Julius Grey will be discussing the contrast between Dickens's personal optimism and political pessimism and the 3 novels which will be the basis of his theory that Dickens was relatively pessimistic about the world by the end of his life. The 3 novels are David Copperfield, Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations. He will argue contrary to most critics that the second "good ending" of Great Expectations is in fact the appropriate one reflecting Dickens's outlook.
