Welcome to my site! This site contains a literary analysis of the concept of identity that is found in the Charles Dickens novel, Great Expectations, and the historical context that surrounds it. I have also included some biographical information about Charles Dickens for those that are interested in some of his other works. I chose this topic because it was a very interesting theme that was present in the novel. It was also interesting how Dickens shaped each character around a specific identity and how that identity was conveyed to the reader. Dickens was very critical of this time period in this writing so it was interesting to see how the identity of each character represented different parts/groups of society. Please enjoy your time here and I hope that I can provide you with a clear analysis of the theme of identity that is found in Great Expectations.
