    Discusses how through the use of various literary devices—-plot, characterization, setting and symbolism—-Charles Dickens is able to develop what becomes a poignant piece of propaganda in his novel "Hard Times," focusing his lens as a novelist on the plight of the poor and to awaken the conscience of his readers.
