For These Times

The shortest of Dicken’s novels, Hard Times surveys English society and satirizes the social and economic conditions of the era. “My satire is against those who see figures and averages, and nothing else,” proclaimed Charles Dickens in explaining the theme of his classic novel. The book follows a classical tripartite structure with 3 books: Sowing, Reaping, and Garnering.

First published in 1854 with no illustrations, this edition is derived from the book published in 1877 with 20 black & white illustrations by Henry French. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.

About the Author

Charles Dickens was a renowned English novelist and social critic whose literary works are celebrated for their vivid characters, intricate plots, and profound commentary on societal issues. Born in Portsmouth, England, Dickens' early years were marked by financial instability and personal challenges. These experiences greatly influenced his writing, as he developed a deep empathy for the struggles of the lower classes.
