Hard Times

A 19th Century, Literature, Classics book. Make the betht of uth; not the wurtht! Charles Dickens, Hard Times //

Hard Times, which has never achieved the popularity and seldom the recognition of Dickens's other novels, is his withering portrait of a Lancashire milltown in the 1840s. In the persons of Gradgrind and Bounderby he powerfully stigmatized the prevalent philosophy of Utilitarianism which, whether in school or factory, allowed human beings to be caged in a dreary scenery of brick terraces and foul chimneys, to be enslaved to machines, and reduced to numbers.

More About Hard Times

Make the betht of uth; not the wurtht! Charles Dickens, Hard Times // A year or two younger than his eminently practical friend, Mr. Bounderby looked older; his seven or eight and forty might have had the seven or eight added to it again, without surprising anybody. He had not much hair. One might have fancied he had talked it off; and that what was left, all standing up in disorder, was in that condition from being constantly blown about by his windy boastfulness. Charles Dickens, Hard Times // Do the wise thing and the kind thing too, and make the best of us and not the worst. Charles Dickens, Hard Times //

Hard Times to me equates good times. I love the authors who have such a command of story they can afford to be concise. This book has gracefully assumed my jacket with "favorite" stitched on the back. Usually this jacket is temporary and circumstantial. It has the mentality of the football captain's jacket which has been placed on many... Click here for Charles Dickens Disclaimer I'm not even sure where to start with this book. First of all, Hard Times is one of the shorter, and lesser known of the Dickens novels. At only around four hundred pages, it almost seems like a novella compared to his other tomes of one thousand pages or more. The book has some interesting... This is the second novel written by Dickens that I meanly give only three stars. The Dickens chemistry, his verve, and his charisma are not here. Don't get me wrong - all the characters are typically his, as well as his pathos, his satire, and his WORDSMITHERY. Despite his typical Dickens features, it was one of the most unlikable novel...
