Novel Settings

Serial Dickens


The novel will take us on a journey, which is symbolized by the carriage. Since Dickens wrote his novels in serial form, or in pieces, he deliberately kept his readers guessing, just as travelers journeying by carriage wonder what they will see next.

  • Think about the first section of the novel that you have just read.
  • Jot down annotations about details that still seem unclear or mysterious to you.
