Hard Times, Dickens's shortest novel and one of his major triumphs, tells the tragic story of Louisa Gradgrind and her father.

With savage bitterness Dickens exposes the devilish industries and institutions that exploited the bodies and minds of the vulnerable labor class
The Dickens critics by George H Ford( Book )

18 editions published between 1961 and 1976 in English and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Bleak house by Charles Dickens( Book )

7 editions published between 1977 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bleak House, Dickens's most daring experiment in the narration of a complex plot, challenges the reader to make connections - between the fashionable and the outcast, the beautiful and the ugly, the powerful and the victims. Nowhere in Dickens's later novels is his attack on an uncaring society more imaginatively embodied, but nowhere either is the mixture of comedy and angry satire more deftly managed. Bleak House defies a single description. It is a mystery story, in which Esther Summerson discovers the truth about her birth and her unknown mother's tragic life. It is a murder story, which comes to a climax in a thrilling chase, led by one of the earliest detectives in English fiction, Inspector Bucket. And it is a fable about redemption, in which a bleak house is transformed by the resilience of human love
