Hard Times etc. Charles Dickens

Hard Times, Hunted Down, Holiday Romance & George Silverman's Explanation

Set in Coketown, which is based on the author's observations of Preston, Hard Times is Dickens's classic work about industrial England. G.K. Chesterton wrote of this novel, 'Twenty times we have taken Dickens's hand and it has been sometimes hot with revelry and sometimes weak with weariness; but this time we start a little, for…we realize that we have touched his gauntlet of steel.' Others have seen a more complete vision of humanity in the novel's portrayal of the generous hearts of Sleary, the circus-owner, and Cissy Jupe, contrasted with the selfishness and harshness of Thomas Gradgrind and other characters who suppress love and imagination.

Hunted Down, Holiday Romance & George Silverman's Explanation were from the Christmas Editions
