Year of Publication: 1907

The title shows that this novel consists matter where the author tells about the difficulties or problems of the people. This novel was written when French revolution was at its peak .And tells us that what circumstances was there problems of middle class families in Britain at that time.
Shows the savagery and squalor of that time. And in this way novel enhances our knowledge about the French revolution and enhances our vocabulary also. Another thing that struck me was Dickens’s superb style of prose. He moves in quick succession from the philosophical, and then suddenly without warning to the satirical. Occasionally his sentences are so long that I’m forced to re read them to grab the meaning. This is one of the most uplifting of Dickens’s novels. This book is certainly different from all the other books by Charles Dickens as it has no particular central character. Well all the other novels by Dickens have a strong connection with London but this story depicts Coke town and Coke town only, a typical red-brick industrial city of the north. Hard Times is a very tragic and wonderfully described story of human oppression.
