Abstract

This article aims to provide an insight to one of the major social conflicts in the history of the world in relation with its reflections in some of Charles Dickens’ major works. The approach is multidisciplinary in that the main principles of social conflict theory are analyzed in terms of their occurrence and function both in real world and the world of fiction. Victorian conflict, along with the role of Dickens as the voice of change and reform during the period, is examined in detail as one of the major cases demonstrating the interrelationship between social conflict and social change.
