3 Charles Dickens Hard Times
Konemann Classics 1998 3895082295 / 9783895082290 Hardcover New in New dust jacket 
0.79 x 6.54 x 4.88; 327 pages; Set in Victorian Britain in a fictitious town named Coketown, Charles Dickens sought to make a statement of the socioeconomic state of the times, when Britain was going through capitalistic growth and while the underprivileged working class labored in poverty. This was published in weekly serials from April to August 1854. Sissy is a child of circus parents. Her father encourages her to get an education and has to abandon her to the school founded by Thomas Gradgrind Senior. Sissy is a dreamer, unspoiled and hopeful who is given the chance to study in the school and live at Stone Lodge with the Gradgrind children Louisa and Thomas Jr. Josiah Bounderby, Gradgrind's friend, associate, and self-made man marries Louisa, 30 years his junior. Sissy endears herself to the household and cares for the ailing Mrs. Gradgrind. She later takes over the management of the household when the matriarch dies. The subsequent chapters follow the life of the Gradgrind children and Sissy. There is the contrast between Gradgrind's pragmatism and Sissy's imaginative nature, the difference between Louisa and Thomas, Jr, and the chasm between the capitalists and the have nots.
