Memoirs of Victorian Working-Class Women : The Hard Way Up, Hardback Book

Memoirs of Victorian Working-Class Women : The Hard Way Up Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Life Writing series


This volume is the first to identify a significant body of life narratives by working-class women and to demonstrate their inherent literary significance.

Placing each memoir within its generic, historical, and biographical context, this book traces the shifts in such writings over time, examines the circumstances which enabled working-class women authors to publish their life stories, and places these memoirs within a wider autobiographical tradition.

Additionally, Memoirs of Victorian Working-Class Women enables readers to appreciate the clear-sightedness, directness, and poignancy of these works.
