Heads and hearts in Charles Dickens Hard times
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This essay focuses on the main characters in Hard Times, namely Mr. Bounderby, Mrs. Sparsit, Cecilia Jupe, Stephen Blackpool, Mr. Gradgrind and Lousia Gradgrind (later Mrs. Bounderby). The aim of this essay is to analyse in what ways they are related to the concepts of “head” and “heart”. The difference between these two ways of relating is that a “head” is a person who only thinks about true facts and empirical knowledge and excludes his or her feelings and imagination. To be a “heart” is the complete opposite. In Hard Times I found that of these six characters I analysed, two of them were true “heads”, two were true “hearts” while two of them went from having been true “heads” to become true “hearts” as the story went on.
