Tommy Sissons presents

Rebel Reading List

Join Repeater author Tommy Sissons as he traces the lineage of British working-class literature from the turn of the twentieth century to the modern day.

 

Tommy will explore the impact of landmark political changes on the literary undercurrent and examine the cultural and creative movements which gave a platform to the authorial voice of the proletariat.

 

What are the defining characteristics of British working-class literature? Why are working-class authors so rarely discussed in an academic context? In what ways can the narratives of the modern common people infiltrate and destabilise a bourgeois literary sphere?

 

These are amongst the questions Tommy will address throughout this ten-part series.
