by Rebecca Harding Davis

Recovered for a new generation of feminist readers, this revolutionary depiction of the American working poor was one of the first literary critiques of industrial capitalism by a nineteenth-century proletarian.

Originally published in 1861 in the Atlantic Monthly, "Life in the Iron Mills" remains a classic of proletarian literature that paints a bleak and incisive portrait of nineteenth-century industrial America. Rebecca Harding Davis was one of the first writers to depict a working class that was exploited and exhausted as capitalism's mills and factories destroyed both the natural environment and the human spirit.
