Victorian is an era, which depicts the contemporary life in a changing society. Gender inequality
triumphs all over the world, inspite of same race, colour, caste and religion. Where poltroon people try to
ameliorate with the high class and the other gender. This paper deals with ignominy, gender bias and
inequality. Though it brings out the symbolic and gothic elements to show the power of renaissance, it
concludes with the positive attitude. Gaining identity is not mere a word of independent but recovering all
the qualities of life – love, care, belongingness, equal status and education. The characters are expressed
as external and inner beauty to show their difference in attitude of where people with good heart look odd
in external beauty. Symbols like fire relates to characters with kind hearted and the destructive
characters are linked with ice.
