By 1854, when Hard times was published, Charles Dickens' magisterial progress as a writer had come to incorporate a many-sided, coherent vision of English society, both as it was and as he wished it to be. A classic Dickensian story of redemption set in a North of England town beset by industrialism, everywhere benefits from this vision -- in the trenchancy of its satire, in its sweeping indignation at social injustice, and in the persistent humanity with which its author enlivens his largest and smallest incidents.
