Though still not known to history as one of his most popular novels, Dickens’ Hard Times possesses both a rewarding economy of language alongside a stunning depth of symbolic imagery that turns both plot and character into something equally real and fantastic. As an indictment of the newly-emerging Industrial Revolution across England in the mid-1800s, the book also continues to give cause for pause to even the most cynical of present-day readers.
