About the book:

Written deliberately to increase the circulation of Dickenss weekly magazine, Household Words, Hard Times was a huge and instantaneous success upon publication in 1854. Yet this novel is not the cheerful celebration of Victorian life one might have expected from the beloved author of The Pickwick Papers and The Old Curiosity Shop. Compressed, stark, allegorical, it is a bitter exposť of capitalist exploitation during the industrial revolutionand a fierce denunciation of the philosophy of materialism, which threatens the human imagination in all times and places. With a typically unforgettable cast of charactersincluding the heartless fact-worshipper
Mr. Gradgrind, the warmly endearing Sissy Jupe, and the eternally noble Stephen BlackpoolHard Times carries a uniquely powerful message and remains one of the most widely read of Dickenss major novels.
