Hard Times

Hard Times
by Charles Dickens

Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2008
ISBN/ASIN: 0141031727

The novel is a bitter indictment of industrialization, with its dehumanizing effects on workers and communities in mid-19th-century England. Louisa and Tom Gradgrind have been harshly raised by their father, an educator, to know nothing but the most factual, pragmatic information. Their lives are devoid of beauty, culture, or imagination, and the two have little or no empathy for others.
