Charles Dickens was one of the greatest English novelists but also one of the greatest
entertainers in the history of fiction. He wrote over twenty novels and many of hischaracters are as
familiar to today’s readers as they were to readers in Dickens’sday. In the early nineteenth century
there was a rise in literacy and everyone, from the ordinary workman to Queen Victoria herself, read
His popularity was inpart due tohis ability to capture the imagination of his audience by
creating unforgettable characters such as the orphan Oliver in Oliver Twistor the escapedconvict
Magwitch in Great Expectations. Hedescribed the lives of ordinary people during the industrial
revolution and he had a deep understanding of the hardships suffered by the poor because of his
Hewas also capable of incredible wit (机智)as is demonstrated in his first and brilliantly comic
novel, The Pickwick Papers. This was aninstant success with his Victorian audience and is still
considered to be one of the funniest books ever written in English.
But there was anotherreason for the amazing success of his novels and that was the way they
were published. All of his major novels were published in magazines in weekly or monthly
instalments. Serial publication had several advantages. In those days, the price of a book was far too
expensive for ordinary people—a novel cost20 shillings or more and the average workeronly
earned between 5 and 30 shillings a week.
Dickens’s novels appeared in magazines as weekly or monthly instalments. These magazines
cost under ashilling and were within the price range of ordinary people. For the publisher, it
increased the market for fiction because more peoplecould afford to buy the magazines.
Dickens wrote his stories with this serial style of publishing in mind,planning each instalment
carefully to keep the attention of his audience. He had to make sure that at the end of each
instalment there was suspense(悬念) which would makereaders wonderwhatwould happen next
and as a result they would buy the next magazine.This created a special style ofnovel which is
organised into regular chapters. Not until the whole story had been published in serial form did it
高三英语第 4页（共 8 页）
appear asa complete novel.
This type of publishing was extremelycommon throughout the nineteenth century and many
other novelists alsopublished in serial form. But unlike Dickens, these other writers never published
the first instalment of a novel until they had written the complete work. Dickens had so much
energy and such an exceptional imagination that he was able to keep to the tight writing schedules
required by serial publicationfor nearly 35 years!
From around the 1850s, many of Dickens’s earlier novels were re-issued in weekly or monthly
parts in what was called the Cheap Edition. This was a similar idea to today’s cheap paperbacks
which are published at least a year after the more expensive hard backbooks.
24. Which of the following isNOTthe reason for the success of Dickens’s novels?
A. Queen Victoria recommended Dickens’snovelsto readers.
B. The characters Dickenscreated were unforgettable.
C. His books wereinteresting.
D. The method of serial publishing made the magazines affordable .
25. The underlined word " instalments " in the 4 th paragraph could be best replaced by______ .
A. serial publication B. low price C. different style D. close connection
26.How did Dickens encouragepeople to buy the next instalment of his story?
A. By creating a special style of novel. B. By making his characters realistic.
C. By creating suspense at the end ofeach instalment. D. By telling his writingplan.
27. How did Dickens differ from other writers at the same time?
A. He was the only writer to use serial publishing.
B. He didn’t complete his stories before he started publishing.
C. His stories were better.
D. He was short of imagination.
Americans do not usually see themselves, when they are in the United States, as
representativesof their country. They see themselves as individuals who are different from all other
individuals, whether those others are Americans or foreigners. Americans may say they have no
culture, since they often think of culture as an additional quality of customs to be found only in
other countries. Individual Americans may think they chose their own values, rather than having had
their values forced on them by the society in which they were born. If you ask them to tell you
something about "American culture" they may be unable to answer and they may even deny that
there is an "American culture".
Because they think they are responsibleas individuals for havingchosen their basic values and
their way of life, many Americans don’t like generalisations( 概 括 ) others make about them.
Generalisations disturb Americans. They may be unhappy with the thought that they hold certain
ideas and act in certain ways simply because they were bornandraised in the United States, and not
because they had consciously thought about those ideas andways of doing things and chosen the
ones they preferred.
At the same time, Americans will readily generalise about various subgroups within their own
country. Northerners have fixed views about Southerners, and vice versa. There are fixed views of
people from the country and people from the city; people from the coasts and people from inland;
people from the Midwest;minority ethnic groups; Texans; New Yorkers; Californians; Iowans; and
Therefore, Americans see few generalisations that can safely be made about them, in part
because they are "so individualistic" and in part because they think regional and other kinds of
differences clearly distinguish Americans of various groups from each other.
28.Americans, when inthe United States, seethemselves as ___________.
A. individuals much the same as foreigners
高三英语第 5页（共 8 页）
B. individuals that share the same values and way of life
C. individuals who are all different
D. representatives of their country
29.Americans maythink that "American culture" ____________.
A. is different from other cultures B. is highly valued around the world
C. is better than other cultures D. does not really exist
30.Americans are disturbed by generalisations others make about them because ____.
A.American culture hasnot been thoroughly studied
B. theythink of themselves as individuals
C. not all Americans were born and raised in the US
D. differentAmericans have different origins
31. Which of the following can best serve as the title of the passage?
A. HowAmericans See Themselves B. Why Generalisations Disturb Americans
C. HowAmerican Culture Develops D. WhatAmerican ValuesAre
Need for closure is apsychological term that describes a person’s desirefora firm answer to a
question. Ourneedfor closure is our naturalpreference for definite answers over confusion and
uncertainty. Every person has their own baseline level of need for closure. It likely evolved via
What I find really fascinating is how our need for closure is affected by the situation we’re in.
Our need for closure rises whenwe have to act rather than just observe, and it matters much more
when we’re rushed, or bored, or tired. Any stress can make our discomfort with uncertainty increase,
and a high need for closure negatively influences some of our most important decisions: who we
decideto trust, whether we admit we’re wrong and even how creative we are.
In hiring, for instance, a high need forclosure leads people to put far too much weight on their
first impression.It’scalled the Urgency Effect. In one experiment, psychologists tried to lower
people’s need for closure by telling them, right before participants are about to makevarious
judgments of a job candidate, that they’ll be responsible in some way for them, or that their
judgments have serious consequences.
Inmaking any big decision,it’s not enough just to know that we should take our time. We all
know that important decisions shouldn’t be rushed. The problem is that we don’t keep that advice in
mind when it matters. So, one of the bestsolutions is to formalize the reminders. Before making
important decisions, write down not just advantages and disadvantages but what theconsequences
could be. Also, think about how much pressure you’re under. If your need for closure is particularly
high that day, it’s even more important to think twice.
32. How does "need for closure" probably come into being?
A. By acquiring. B. By accident. C. By nature. D. By imitating.
33. It canbe inferred that a high need for closure ______.
A. promotes one’s creativity B. leads to not so good decisions
C. brings about more stress D. causes discomfort and uncertainty
34.In the experiment the psychologists reduced participants’ need for closure by telling them to
A. be responsible for their boss B. be cautious about their judgments
C. value their first impression D. pay little attention to the consequences
35.The author would probably discuss_______ in the paragraph that follows.
A. some serious consequences of making decisions
B. other approachesto makingimportant decisions
C. more helpful solutions to high need for closure
D. another strategy to escape the pressures of modern life
