Viac o knihe Ragged Trousered Philanthropists (Oxford World's Classics) (Tressell, R.)

´The present system means joyless drudgery, semi-starvation, rags and premature death; and they vote for it and uphold it. Let them have what they vote for! Let them drudge and let them starve!´ There is no other novel quite like The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. George Orwell called it ´a wonderful book´; its readers have become a living part of its remarkable history. Tressell´s novel is about survival on the underside of the Edwardian Twilight, about exploitative employment when the only safety nets are charity, workhouse, and grave. Following the fortunes of a group of painters and decorators and their families, and the attempts to rouse their political will by the Socialist visionary Frank Owen, the book is both a highly entertaining story and a passionate appeal for a fairer way of life. It asks questions that are still being asked today: why do your wages bear no relation to the value of your work? Why do fat cats get richer when you don´t? Tressell´s answers are ´The Great Money Trick´ and the ´philanthropy´ of an unenlightened workforce, who give away their rights and aspirations to a decent life so freely. Intellectually enlightening, deeply moving and gloriously funny (complete with exploding clergyman), The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is a book that changes lives.
