From the Paper
Charles Dickens was an observer of industrial Britain and a social critic. He tends to present in his novels a huge panorama of people and events, and in this way he gives a picture of the time and a real sense of what life is like in different parts of England. In Hard Times, Dickens criticizes the kind of society that developed after the Industrial Revolution, and he sees both the bad things about this society and some of the ways that this society might be improved. He presents these ideas in the context of a novel that has a sense of history and of the social movements driving history. The reader can see in this novel the kind of life lived by the people in industrialized Britain at the end of the nineteenth century, the elements of human nature that brought about this society, and the response of people at all levels of that society.
