“In all Dickens’s work there is a confusion of mind which reflects the perplexity of his time; equally ready to denounce on the grounds of humanity all who left things alone, and on the grounds of liberty all who tried to make them better, England was shifting uneasily and convulsively from an old to a new discipline, and the early stages were painful.” — G. M. Young, Victorian England: Portrait of an Age
