Alton Locke is the story of a young tailor-boy who has instincts and aspirations beyond the normal expectations of his working-class background. He is intensely patriotic and has ambitions to be a poet. In the course of the narrative, Alton Locke loves and struggles in vain. Physically, he is a weak man, but is able to encompass all the best emotions, along with vain longings, wild hopes, and a righteous indignation at the plight of his contemporaries. He joins the Chartist movement because he can find no better vehicle by which to improve the lot of the working class, experiencing a sense of devastation at its apparent failure. Utterly broken in spirit, Alton Locke sails for America to seek a new life there; however, he barely reaches the shore of the New World before he dies
The friendship of books, and other lectures by Frederick Denison Maurice( Book )

36 editions published between 1874 and 2018 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

F. D. Maurice (1805-72), the widely published theologian and Christian socialist, served as both Professor of English Literature at King's College, London, and Professor of Moral Philosophy at Cambridge. He was a founding member of the Cambridge Apostles and later founded the Working Men's College in London. Most of Maurice's publications derive from his sermons and lectures. This book serves as an instructional guide to students of literature. The title is taken from the first lecture, in which Maurice argues that books 'help us in knowing ourselves - the part of history of our land, the people we are continually meeting. And any book that does that is surely a friend.' Subsequent chapters include 'On words', 'Ancient history' and 'On Christian civilization' as well as those with a more literary focus, on Spenser, Milton and Burke. The work was published posthumously in 1873; this third edition appeared in 1880
