One of the three, Solomon Daisy, tells an ill-kempt stranger at the inn a well-known local tale of the murder of Reuben Haredale which had occurred 22 years ago that very day.

Reuben had been the owner of the Warren, a local estate which is now the residence of Geoffrey, the deceased Reuben's brother, and Geoffrey's niece, Reuben's daughter Emma Haredale. After the murder, Reuben's gardener and steward went missing and were suspects in the crime.

Joe Willet, son of the Maypole proprietor, quarrels with his father because John treats year-old Joe as a child.

Meanwhile, Edward Chester is in love with Emma Haredale. Both Edward's father, John Chester, and Emma's uncle, the Catholic Geoffrey Haredale — these two are sworn enemies — oppose the union after Sir John untruthfully convinces Geoffrey that Edward's intentions are dishonourable. Sir John intends to marry Edward to a woman with a rich inheritance, to support John's expensive lifestyle and to pay off his debtors.

Barnaby is duped into joining them, despite his mother's pleas. The rioters then march on Parliament, and burn several Catholic churches and the homes of Catholic families. A detachment led by Hugh and Dennis head for Chigwell, intent on exacting revenge on Geoffrey Haredale, leaving Barnaby to guard The Boot , the tavern they use as their headquarters.

The mob loots the Maypole on their way to the Warren, which they burn to the ground. Emma Haredale and Dolly Varden now Emma's companion are taken captive by the rioters. In other words, the Parliament was in reality trying to use the Catholics for its own advantage.

The first attacks were made on the chapels which were used by the Catholics as parish churches.

A Susan Burney who eye-witnessed the horror of the Gordon Riots presented her feelings in a letter to her friend Fanny in June I was terrified and shocked extremely at the rage. Historians and history books bring forward the name of the Lord Mayor of London, Brackley Kennett, who was incapable of the protection of the city and its inhabitants Babington 23 Hibbert Due to his inefficiency in controlling the riot, there occurred a harsh battle between the military forces and the rioteers as stated by Castro: The military, freed from submission to the civil power, had no hesitation in using their muskets and sabres or in going in with the bayonet.

They repulsed attacks on the Bank, broke up a mob at Black Friars with a Bayonet charge, cleared the streets of Holborn, and fought a violent battle with the rioters in the Strand. By Saturday 10th June, peace had been restored in London by force. That is why, Maypole Inn preserves its importance throughout the novel since it is depicted as the place where the private and public lives of the characters are presented.

First, the Maypole is used as the medium in which the main characters of the novel are introduced to the reader and later on, its burning down by the Protestant rioters is used to depict the destruction of the upheaval. As Barbara Stuart states: The first half of the novel focuses on the private lives of those who live in and around the Maypole Inn. Dickens reserves until later the historical or political elements which will disrupt those private lives In Barnaby Rudge, Dickens links private lives to public events to show that individual moral errors is at the heart of social and political upheaval.

According to Stuart, Dickens especially puts emphasis on the individual moral errors in the first half of the novel in order to underline the fact that in a society, if individuals cannot preserve their moral values, social and political upheavals are inevitable. Indeed, it needed no very great stretch of fancy to detect in it other resemblances to humanity.

Hence, it would not be wrong to state that the Maypole Inn witnessed this religious conflict long ago and is likely to witness it again. In order to attain accuracy and create the true historical Alev BAYSAL circumstances, both Scott and Dickens did research on the characteristics of the decades with which they were dealing Lukacs Following Scott in relating historical events to contemporary ones, Dickens particularly relates the Gordon Riots to the Chartist Movement of his own day.

The aim of this practice is to give a message.

Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty by Charles Dickens

In the failure of Chartism, the role of the leaders was undeniable. Contrary to reality, Dickens depicts the leader of the Gordon Riots, Lord George Gordon, as a little distant to the mob, and as insecure.

Move them my Lord! Move them! My lord! By angels. Why should I? When Lord Gordon is arrested and put in jail, after the Gordon Riots is over, he questions the events and becomes aware of the fact that he is all alone. Of all forty thousand men, not one remained to bear him company.

Friends, dependents, followers — none were there. His fawning secretary had played the traitor; and he whose weakness had been goaded and urged on by so many for their own purposes, was desolate and alone. The same process was repeated three more times in the years of , , with an increasing number of signatures Finn 6.

Unfortunately, not a great success was achieved in either the Gordon Riots or the Chartist Movement. The petitions were refused by the Parliament and both of the events turned to be failures, and before the Chartist Movement died Finn By the s, the conditions of the working class got worse and they were forced to work longer hours with lower wages; this meant that: the working class had been robbed for the fruits of its labour and was undergoing a diminution in its quality of life.

It appeared to many workers that the grievances could be redressed only by their securing influence over the political system. The most important difference that should be clarified between these authors is in the sequence of depicting the historical scenes.

Scott generally introduces the historical event in the beginnings of his novels and later pays special attention to the developments of the characters, whereas Dickens, especially in Barnaby Rudge, prefers to introduce the mob scene in the last third of the novel, approximately five years after the narrative opens Pearson By contrast, Dickens makes his major characters like Hugh, Dennis, Sim Tappertit and Barnaby Rudge known to his readers in the first half of the novel and later especially focuses on the riot and the mob scenes.

Dickens prefers to give the causes and effects of this particular incident by dealing with the psychology of both the Catholics and Protestants. Here, Dickens, practises the idea of Tocqueville who believes that in order to apprehend the importance of a historical event, the spirit of a society should be understood Mitchell For Ranke: Historians thought it possible to recapture the past through careful research; an artist no less than a historian was obliged to real life, and a Alev BAYSAL historical novelist, if he were to be too seriously, had to respect the basic materials that he shared with historians.

It is an imaginative portrayal of history. The historical novelist provokes an d conveys, by imaginative sympathy, the feeling of how it was to be alive in another age. Fleishmann 4 At this point, the tasks of a historical novelist and a historian should clearly be identified.

In his preface to Ivanhoe , Scott brings forward an explanation to his understanding of the historical novel indicating that: Still severe antiquary may think that, by intermingling fiction with truth, I am polluting the well of history with modern inventions, and impressing upon the rising generation with false ideas of the age which I describe. It is true that I neither can nor do pretend to the observation of complete accuracy, even in matters of outward costume, much less in the more important points of language and manners.

What Scott does is to use those details only as medium to analyse the customs and manners of the people with whom he is dealing.

As his main concern is not history but how these historical facts influence the personal lives of the individuals, the accurateness of the details is of no importance to Scott. Another important Rankean principle, which Dickens practised, is his insistence on the systematic research of the facts in his fiction.

In other words, it can be said that, Dickens eagerly works out the actual events and characters and portrays them as true to reality as possible in Barnaby Rudge.

Dickens also uses the actual symbols of the riot. In reality, the blue cockade was used in order to make the Protestant rioters recognise each other. Christopher Hibbert narrates the actual event as: On the morning of Friday, 2 June , about 60, members of the Protestant Associations, many of them wearing their adopted symbol, a blue cockade, in their hats, assembled in St.

Babington 21 The symbol of the blue cockade is systematically repeated throughout the novel whenever it is thought to be necessary, and an imaginary character John Grueby " who had a great blue cockade in his hat, which he appeared to despise mightily brought in the portmanteau he had carried on his horse Another incident in which Dickens reflects the Rankean principle is the time when the mob marches to the House of Commons in the delivery of the Protestant Petition.

Strangely enough, in reality, through the advertisement which appeared in several newspapers, the Protestants were called to be with the mob which would march in four different divisions: For the sake of good order and regularity, that this Associations, on coming to the ground, do separate themselves into 4 distinct divisions, viz. Hibbert 31 What is important here is that Dickens is faithful to the presentation of the event and he does not let the sequence of the divisions be changed.

This also shows that Dickens did a well organised research on the facts, and, following the Rankean principle, used the details accurately without changing a single point. Thus, Dickens, unlike Scott, pays special attention to presenting the details precisely.

The most outstanding factual detail Dickens uses is related to the petition. At this point, it can Alev BAYSAL straightforwardly be claimed that while he was writing Barnaby Rudge, Dickens partly following the Rankean principles, did a serious and systematic research on his subject; he not only used the known facts and details in his fiction but also the details which could hardly be remembered by the public and which needed efficient research to be known.

Of this crime was, after a patient investigation, declared not guilty; upon the ground that there was no proof of having called the multitude together with any traitors or unlawful intentions. Hence, Dickens did not hesitate to use fiction and his own interpretation within historical facts with the aim of depicting the social causes and effects of these facts and analyse a historical event both from social and historical points of view while reflecting the psychology of the society and by paying special attention to factual details.
