    Dickens further emphasizes this theme in the book’s final climactic moments, when Sydney Carton repeats to himself the John passage, “I am the resurrection and the life” for comfort and talks about going to “a better land.” Dickens alludes to the de-Christianization of the period by demonstrating the growing love of violence.

What, in your opinion, is the proper order to read Charles Dickens' books to get the best feel/experience for the author? Ive never read any Dickens besides A Christmas Carol and between Dickens' reputation and the sheer number of books we have all of a sudden I am a bit intimidated/lost on where to even begin with him.

      Typical of this school of thought was the late Edgar Johnson, author of the book "Charles Dickens: His Triumph and Tragedy." .   Like all of his books after The Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens' Great Expectations was written to educate and enlighten, as well as entertain. Readers learn about the class system in Victorian England through Pip's journey as he moves up the class scale from country lad to city gentleman.5/5.
