Laboring-Class Poets Online

Laboring-Class Poets Online

Laboring-Class Poets Online (LCPO) is a database-driven website (or what Carole Palmer might call a “thematic research collection”) which delivers biographical and bibliographical information about the more than 2,000 laboring-class poets who published between 1700 and 1900. Derived from thirty years of collaborative research created by academics in the UK and North America, the digital resource functions as a clearinghouse for information about poets from the lower classes who lived anywhere in the British Isles or in British colonies. The project organizes information and scholarly and pedagogical resources for a broader audience, demonstrating its importance and relevance in literary and social history and ensuring its preservation through a more accessible and systematic dissemination of information.
