A comprehensive critical survey of working class fiction from chartism to the present day.

Description: In the first study of tis radical genre for over a decade, Ian Haywood provides a comprehensive introduction to working class literature over the last 150 years. from the radical fiction of the Chartists to the contemporary writing of James Kelman, Haywood explores the divers achievements of working class authors and the ways in which many of these texts have consistantly challenged dominant literary, critical and social values. Particular attention is given to the recent intervention of women writers into this tradition, including Buchi Emechita and Pat Barker. This fascinating exploration combines an extensive survey and bibliography with a commitment to working class writing as a vital area of literary study.
