Illustration Analysis

You As Illustrator

Work Time

Dickens sometimes published illustrations with his novels. With your group, review the plotlines of Chapters 17–20, and do the following.

  • Imagine that Dickens has hired your group to capture a moment from these four chapters.
  • Imagine there is only room for one illustration, so you will have to choose well.
  • Consider what scenes seem to you important or interesting. Why might an illustrator choose one scene over another?
  • Narrow down your choices to one scene that you would illustrate if Dickens hired you.
