Writing and radicalism( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adopting a broad interdisciplinary approach, in which critical and theoretical concerns are tested against the demands of history, this study traces the creative diversity of radical writing, covering influential figures such as Milton and Tom Paine, as well as groups of writers including the Chartist novelists. Key themes are addressed including urbanisation, the development of class consciousness and the subversive potentials of popular culture. This new and penetrating study combines scholarly articles with a wide range of original source material. The study extends the parameters of contemporary debate concerning the role and significance of radical writing to political movements over the period, and uncovers previously neglected writers. The sweeping chronological range of the study and the original documents make Writing and Radicalism an essential introduction for students of literature, history and politics
