Abstract

abstract:

This paper explores representations of the London Dockworkers’ Strike of 1889 in Margaret Harkness’s contributions to the periodical press. Harkness’s personal involvement in the strike allowed her to offer detailed accounts of events as well as her own opinions and doubts about the strike’s impact. The paper considers how Harkness’s attempts to give a voice to the striking workers in the periodical press reveal her own priorities and concerns.
