Posted On Oct 17 2011 by
In order to approach the problem of identity in relation to the house and draw the most pertinent conclusions, it is important that we regard the house not only as a passive object to be observed, built, owned, bought, demolished or refurnished, but also as an active subject imposing its rules and dominant atmosphere upon its inhabitants. The novels that will provide textual support for the theoretical part are Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Charles Dickens’s Oliver Twist.
