There are many issue?s concerning the story Hard Times, but I want to discuss the topic of money, both new and old between the characters in the story. One other topic of discussion would be the role play of the common women in this period of time. I would also like to discuss the irony in this topic, a sort of poetic justice. The tone of the story has a great deal on the whole story. The stories are all based upon the factories and the life style of the people who ran them.
On the topic of new money, we have the character Mr. Bounderby in mind. He is the perfect example of the new aged money maker in this story. Mr. Bounderby makes his money off of the factories; the same way most of the people who lived in the town of Coke had made their money. One could also consider Mr. Bounderby to be apart of the high class. He is a very wealthy man compared to most of the people from Coke Town. Mr. Bounderby was also a very well known and respected person in his community. Yet,
