Robert Tresell’s The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists was first published in 1914 after his death in 1911. An explicitly political work, it is widely regarded as a classic of working-class literature. The book recounts the little daily successes and the disasters of a group of working-class men, living under the constant fear of being laid off by employers forever looking for new corners to cut.
