Hard times; an authoritative text, backgrounds, sources, and contemporary reactions, criticism by Charles Dickens( Book )

21 editions published between 1966 and 1990 in English and held by 1,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hard Times, Dickens's shortest novel and one of his major triumphs, tells the tragic story of Louisa Gradgrind and her father. No other work of Dickens presents so harsh an indictment against the attitude of life he associated with Utilitarianism. With savage bitterness Dickens exposes the devilish industries and institutions that exploited the bodies and minds of the vulnerable labor class

The present volume offers a new and different kind of aid to readers and students of Dickens' fiction. It brings together a selection of the important essays, articles, and chapters, from 1841 to now, that critically examine Dickens' fiction. With this collection the modern reader can test his own responses to Dickens against those of others -- sometimes hostile, sometimes friendly, but always lively and suggestive. All the essays in this collection were chosen because they made a serious critical statement about Dickens' fiction in general or about a single work. Some were chosen as necessary examples of the work of well-known critics of Dickens; some were chosen to bring to the reader essays or articles less widely known. Many excellent essays have had to be omitted for lack of space, but they and others will be found in the bibliography. - Preface
