Product Description

Divided into sections of sowing, reaping, and garnering, Hard Times is a scathing portrait of the outcome of Victorian capitalism, industrialism, and utilitarianism. Set in the manufacturing city of "Coketown," Dickens focuses all his powers of observation on the treatment of the working class by their employers. Looking at the outcome of mistreating employees and living a life based purely on emotionless rationality, Dickens assaults the ideas that prosperity and morality are intertwined, and that people can be reduced to numbers, statistics, and profits.

Unabridged MP3-CD; approximately 11 hours; 1MP3-CD; read by Anton Lesser.

Publisher's Description

Hard Times is Dickens's most political novel. Set in the industrial north of England, in Coketown, he examines the lives of working people, who are taught by the capitalists Gradgrind and Bounderby to think only of the facts of life and not to indulge in imagination. Gradgrind's own children have been so educated and as a result are dysfunctional and disconnected from their feelings. Only the travelling circus company of Sleary seems to offer any hope of humanity in Coketown. Hard Times is a deeply moving story written in anger to strike a blow for the victims of the dehumanising processes of industry.
