Factory Production in Nineteenth-Century Britain Summary


Factory Production in Nineteenth-Century Britain by Edited by Elaine Freedgood

Captivating reading for students of Victorian history, literature, and culture, this volume brings together writings on industrialization to demonstrate the scope of responses-from wondrous celebration to apocalyptic horror-elicited by the advent and establishment of the factory system in nineteenth-century Britain. In this collection, familiar works by John Ruskin, Thomas Carlyle, and William Morris are joined by texts that have fallen into an undeserved obscurity, including selections by factory tourists, inspectors, critics, and workers.
