Fellow Dickensians,

    Here is the bibliography for HARD TIMES as prepared for
participants in the 1994 Dickens Universe at UC Santa Cruz, John
Jordan, Director.

    As explained earlier, these bibliographies are by no means
exhaustive, the lists being intended for a varied group of stu-
dents and faculty about to engage in a week's intensive discus-
sion of the particular novel.   As you will have seen from our
earlier report on the conference, discussion ranged from tradi-
tional approaches to the latest modes of discourse, and I believe
that the list reflects this range.

    The present checklist is the fifth in the series.  Lists for
EDWIN DROOD are in the files of DICKNS-L, along with other gen-
eral bibliographies that are available there.   Cheers!

                           HARD TIMES
                     A Selected Bibliography
                   The Dickens Universe, 1994


Two editions are recommended:
Penguin, edited and with an introduction by David Craig
    (Harmondsworth, 1969)
Norton Critical Edition, edited and with an introduction by
    George Ford and Sylvere Monod (New York, 1966; 2nd edition,
    1990). Valuable for its textual notes, Dickens's working
    plans, background materials from Household Words, con-
    temporary materials on industrialism and education, and a
    selection of criticism.
