Robert Blincoe was an inspiration – he survived, albeit somewhat damaged, made the most of his life, created opportunities and became a rallying point for much needed reform. This book provides the underlying reality to the appalling lives glimpsed in Dicken’s Hard Times and Gaskell’s North and South – and fleshes out the world of Blake’s Satanic Mills.
A very readable and illuminating insight into that era of rampant capitalism and reformist zeal.
