Abstract

abstract:

This essay recovers an often overlooked episode in women’s labor history. Its focus on author-activist Ada Nield Chew reconstructs her journey towards literary professionalization and her evolving relation to literature and the radical press. The essay features extended close literary analysis of Nield’s “Crewe Factory Girl” letters for the first time. Examining their significance as historical records contextualizes Nield’s early writings and their intersections with the literary marketplace, socialism, and feminism in 1890s England.
