Abstract: Angus Wilson identifies three main sources for Dickens' concern with children and childhood : the autobiographical, the social, and the metaphysical-historical. Wilson points out that the autobiographical source is overworked, and that the social source has been treated with considerable thoroughness and sensitivity by Philip Collins and Humphry House. But he suggests that the metaphysical-historical source has been comparatively unexplored. By this he means Dickens' attempt to resolve the metaphysical debate concerning the meaning and value of childhood that Dickens inherited from the previous century. Malcolm Andrews starts his study at this point and claims that the habit of depending largely on the biographical record, when considering Dickens' treatment of childhood, reduces the complexities of his attitudes to a matter of personal idiosyncrasy. But he also states that the biographical and the metaphysical-historical are not proposed as alternative or mutually exclusive modes of interpreting Dickens' treatment of childhood. From the standpoint of emphasizing the metaphysical-historical source, Andrews examines "the grown-up child, "the peculiar hybrid in Dickens' fiction within the context of Victorian culture. This paper deals with the image of child, especially the oxymoronic grown-up child in Dickens. It presents Andrew's principles of metaphysical-historical source focusing primarily on the grown-up child. It also examines the problem of child-parent relationship, without ignoring the biographical source.
