Sunday Under Three Heads pdf Summary
Dickens talks of the joys of a quiet a Sunday afternoon and the pleasure derived from a day off for the working classes. The pampered aristocrat, whose life is one continued round of licentious pleasures and sensual gratifications; or the gloomy enthusiast, who detests the cheerful amusements he can never enjoy, and envies the healthy feelings he can never know, and who would put down the one and suppress the other, until he made the minds of his fellow-beings as besotted and distorted as his own; –neither of these men can by possibility form an adequate notion of what Sunday really is to those whose lives are spent in sedentary or laborious occupations, and who are accustomed to look forward to it through their whole existence, as their only day of rest from toil, and innocent enjoyment.

Sunday Under Three Heads Review (Goodreads)
Jessie rated it really liked it
Nothing is more thrilling than reading Dickens’ argument for equality of classes. During a time period where the King was abhorred by the idea of people working on Sunday, yet saw the lower class and servants as exempt from his horror (after all, how would he have his meal if not for them working -_-). I have a lot of choice words for many in power, especially those in power in the past. However, Charles manages to summarize it perfectly in a wit and jest that I’m surprised didn’t end with his death.
Paul rated it did not like it
This was a title that had been sitting around in my iCloud library for some time, but the need for space finally prompted me to read it. What I didn’t realise is that it’s not a Dickensian novel. It’s an essay and has a grand total of three chapters which focuses on activities during the Sabbath. What Dickens doesn’t consider is the dilemma that everyone has to work on Sunday at some point, whether it’s the constable enforcing the Sabbath, the vicar that administers Holy Communion, or the simple housewife who has to slave over the hot stove to prepare the Sunday feast. Whatever happens, someone must toil in some manner, so a day of rest is practically impossible. If the Sabbath were to be properly enforced we’d be confined to our beds for prayer. Not everyone can truly be free, unless we take the interpretation that men can be free and women cannot. Try saying that in this day and age.
About Charles Dicken Author of Sunday Under Three Heads Book pdf Book
The author of a Sunday Under Three Heads pdf Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth where his father was a clerk in the navy pay office. The family moved to London in 1823, but their fortunes were severely impaired. Dickens was sent to work in a blacking-warehouse when his father was imprisoned for debt. Both experiences deeply affected the future novelist. In 1833 he began contributing stories to newspapers and magazines, and in 1836 started the serial publication of Pickwick Papers. Thereafter, Dickens published his major novels over the course of the next twenty years, from Nicholas Nickleby to Little Dorrit. He also edited the journals Household Words and All the Year Round. Dickens died in June 1870.
