Self-Help by Samuel Smiles

I propose to write about Self-Help by Samuel Smiles which talks about knowledge being powerful and one of
the greatest things an individual can acquire as it is a great enjoyment, with education only being one of many
ways to gain knowledge. I plan on using the book Victorian Liberalism and Material Culture : Synergies of
Thought and Place by Kevin Morrison as a secondary source to highlight the ideals of the Victorian society and
contrast them to how Smiles believes that people can and will be more powerful once they realize their selfworth. I also plan on using Great Expectations by Charles Dickens to show how Smiles impacted and inspired
different Victorian authors as they began to write more freely and use his different examples bringing them to
life in their own stories.
