Sowing in Corruption: Ignominious Burials in Dickens and Hardy

Hometown: Manchester, Ohio

Department: English 

Advisor: Kim Wheatley


My Honors Thesis will consider the representation of the burials of social outcasts in novels by Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy as critiques of Victorian society. Social exclusion and the recognition of human dignity in life and death were major issues amidst the population boom of the Victorian period and they remain relevant in our own age
