As one rereads this novel and becomes even more
familiar with the characters, the minor ones start
taking on a life of their own. And Rosa Dartle is one
of the more fascinating of these, because she is one
of the darkest characters Dickens ever created--
darker even than those other embittered figures, Miss
Havisham and Estella. The latter two undergo some
sort of humanization, but Rosa Dartle remains
embittered throughout. She is is the figure of
spinsterhood we all fear and is used by Dickens as
a sexist warning to women and a general reminder that
we must not close our hearts to life because by dwelling on the negative we lose sight of the
positive. Hope permeates throughout DC is Rosa Dartle
is a reminder of what becomes of an individual who
abandons hope.
