Hard Times, one of the most widely read of Dickens' major novels, is both a captivating story and an illuminating indictment of capitalist exploitation during the Industrial Revolution. The hard lessons wrought by zealous materialism awaken characters to a new philosophy, and to hope. From fact-worshipping Mr. Gradgrind, to eternally noble Stephen Blackpool, to endearing Sissy Jupe, Martin Jarvis masterfully portrays each of the unforgettable characters.
