The Secret River

How does her portrayal differ from the familiar Dickensian one? What devices does she use to articulate the era?

In the London portion of The Secret River, readers may notice similarities with Charles Dickens’s depiction of the poverty and moral tone in nineteenth-century London. The Dickens version has become an archetype. Grenville is very effective at evoking the period, as well.
