Great piece. Your identification of how Dickens epitomises the Industrial Revolution in the description of Coketown is great. The insufferable nature of the elongated sentences was an extremely good point and I appreciate your attention to detail. In your mention of the snake being the smog, I disagree slightly. For me, snake’s connote chaos, moreover turmoil, and temptation, generated from Biblical stories. This temptation could be then interpreted as the intense greed for money – like you said, people’s obsession with money that ruins society. Your quote choice was exceptional in displaying the way in which ‘fact’ is a form of religion.
I thoroughly enjoyed your blog.
