  2. 1. Didactic novels attempt to instruct the reader, often morally. From the Greek didasko, to teach. Dickens’ novel is didactic in its moral indictment of selfishness. HARD TIMES (1854) was written specifically to challenge the prevailing view of his society that practicality and facts were of greater importance and value than feelings and persons. In his indignation at callousness in business and public educational systems, Dickens laid part of the charge for the heartlessness of Englishmen at the door of the utilitarian philosophy then much in vogue. But the lasting applicability of the novel lies in its intensely focused picture of an English industrial town in the heyday of capitalist expansion and in its keen view of the limitations of both employers and reformers.

    2. The novel became famous and important in Victorian era Because in 1814-1832 Scott’s great series of Waverley Novels became best seller all over the world. And they created a fashion for the series novel, published in monthly parts. This fashion went on for most of the rest of the century.

    3. A dramatic monologue is a combination of the words dramatic and monologue (obviously). The “dramatic” says that it could be acted out, and is a form of drama, while the “monologue” defines it as a speech that one person makes, either to them self or to another. A dramatic monologue is written to reveal both the situation at hand and the character herself. Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s Ulysses, published in 1842, has been called the first true dramatic monologue. After Ulysses, Tennyson’s most famous efforts in this vein are Tithonus, The Lotos-Eaters, and St. Simon Stylites, all from the 1842 Poems; later monologues appear in other volumes, notably Idylls of the King.

  3. 1. Didactic novel is a novel that set out to expose social injustice. Dickens’ novels are didactic because his works are meant to instruct, give advice, or convey a philosophy or a moral message.
    E.g : Charles Dickens’ novel entittled Hard Times. Thomas Gadgrind is explaining his expectations to the teacher that he has engaged to teach at the school which he established. His ‘philosophy’ of education firmly places the teacher as the source of all information which must be imparted to the students in the same linear, incremental approach adopted by the Behaviourist approach to education. His focus on fact ignores the differences of individuals and the potential of imaginative and creative thought. It is as if the school is a human machine in which children are processed ready for use in society. Dickens uses this character and his view of education to draw obvious comparisons between the plight of the poor and the poverty brought on by the industrial revolution. Didactic education prescribed what each social class needed to know in order to take their place in the industrial world, therefore making it impossible to achieve or even dream of upward social mobility.

    2. In the Victorian period, the novel became the most popular and important form; in Britain and all over the world. This was partly because of the success of the novels of Sir Walter Scott. His great series of Waverley Novels, published between 1814 and 1832, became best-sellers all over the world. They created a fashion for the series novel, published in monthly parts. This fashion went on for most of the rest of the century. The setting is Scotland during Bonnie Prince Charlie’s rising of 1745; the main character, Edward Waverley, falls hard for the Scottish Cause, and has many adventures but ends up on the winning (English) side after all.

    3. Dramatic monologue is the form of drama that there are no dialogue.This form uses a speaking voice which shows his or her thoughts, and a full idea of the character comes out from the words. Because a dramatic monologue is by definition one person’s speech, it is offered without overt analysis or commentary, placing emphasis on subjective qualities that are left to the audience to interpret.Robert Browning is well known as master of the dramatic monologue in the Victorian age.

  5. Dear sir
    Below is my response about Romantic period question

    1. The meant of didactic novel is a novel that tells about the suffering of children as one of the major problem in Victorian society. Dicken’s novels didactic because he wrote some novels that reflect and showed the suffering of someone in the era of Queen Victoria. The suffering of the children is the main theme of Dicken’s writing. He wanted education for all children and shows his reader the kind of the problems children had in cities where poor people had no chance to share the success of nation. His novels tells the story of victims and made the reader aware of many problems in Victorian society.

    2. In the Victorian period, the novel became the most popular and important form in Britain, and all over the world as well. It is said that this was partly due to the success of Sir Walter Scott’s novels because his great series WAVERLEY novel published between 1814 and 1832 became the best seller all over the world. He creates a fashion for series novel that published monthly parts. Then the novel published in the volume form, at this time people begin to borrow the novel from the library. Private commercial libraries became a very important influence on the reading public. They sometimes refused to lend a book, especially later in the century, because they did not like the subject matter. However, in the early years of the century the novels did not cause offence. They were often historical, in the tradition of Scott. Then, with the novels of Charles Dickens, a social concern with the problems of the society of the time enters the novel.

    3. Dramatic monologue is a poet of sadness and loss, but the poetry shows a wide range of subject matter and not all poems have a tone of unhappiness. The person that is well known as master of the dramatic monologue in the Victorian age is Tennyson, the nation favorite poet.
