Florence and Little Paul
Little Paul is sent to Brighton, on the seacoast in the south of England, for his health. “The sea, Floy. What is it that it keeps on saying?” he asks his sister. Dickens had described the first Mrs. Dombey’s death as drifting "out upon the dark and unknown sea that rolls round all the world.”
