Summary
Hard Times, Dickens's shortest novel and one of his major triumphs, tells the tragic story of Louisa Gradgrind and her father. No other work of Dickens presents so harsh an indictment against the attitude of life he associated with Utilitarianism. With savage bitterness Dickens exposes the devilish industries and institutions that exploited the bodies and minds of the vulnerable labor class
