I don't think Dickens' intent is to frustrate anyone...... he intent was to give an accurate portrayal of life as it was. Life doesn't always have happy endings, and Dickens is famous for twisting the plot and surprising us at every turn. Ultimately, Dickens is a social commentator. He doesn't sugarcoat life, and he allows his characters to demonstrate the flaws found within humanity.... rich or poor.
