Literature & Fiction

Hard Times by Charles Dickes, was first published in 1854 and it is by far the shortest of Dickens' novels. The story is set in the fictitious Victorian industrial Cokelown, a generic Northern English mill-town. The book appraises English society and is aimed at highlighting the social and economic pressures of the times.

The problems Dickens focuses on are those of the poverty-ridden, dehumanizing factories, town that sprung up in England during the Industrial Revolution. In the world depicted in the novel, workers are treated as little more than interchangable parts in the factory's machinery, given just enough wages to keep them alive and just enough rest to make it possible for them to stand in front of their machines the next day.
