Abstract

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.
