No other work of Charles Dickens presents such a scathing indictment against the relentless greed of the Victorian industrial society and its misapplied philosophy. With savage bitterness, Dickens unmasks the terrible industries that imprisoned the bodies of the helpless labor class and the equally diabolical institutions that shackled the development of their minds.
