9780192823328: Three Great Novels: Hard Times; A Tale of Two Cities; Great Expectations

These three very different novels show the remarkable scope of Dicken's work. Hard Times (1854) exposes the limites of utilitarian philosophy, as Louisa Gradgrind grows up trapped by her disciplinarian father's uncompromising views on bringing up children. A Tale of Two Cities (1859), set in London and Paris, sees the causes and effects of the French Revolution from the point of view of individuals caught up in events. One of Dicken's most experimental novels, it is also a highly charged examination of human suffereing and sacrifice. Great Expectations (1860-1) charts the progress of Pip from childhood through a series of painful and comic experiences to adulthood, stressing that he must establish his own sense of self and discover his own set of values. Peopled with memorable characters such as Sleary of the circus in Hard Times , and Miss Havisham, locked in memories of her past in Great Expectations , each of these novels explores questions of human fallibility, honour, and growth. This book is intended for general readers. Possibly some students of English Literature, but not using it as an official text.
