Abstract

In my thesis, I examine the development of working-class fiction in the twentieth century. I trace the development from D. H. Lawrence, in a period of gradually increasing linguistic and political working-class enfranchisement, through Walter Greenwood, in a period of industrial depression, to the popular success of Alan Sillitoe in a period of great economic freedom.
