Laboring-Class Poets Online

Posted by Cole Crawford on June 20, 2017

Laboring-Class Poets OnlineĀ is a database-driven website that aggregates biographical and bibliographical information about the more than 2,000 laboring-class poets who published between 1700 and 1900 and the texts they produced. It functions as a clearinghouse for data about poets from the lower classes who lived in the British Isles or in British colonies, and thereby helps demonstrate the importance of laboring-class writing to social and literary history.
