Chartist poetry was written by and for workers. In contrast with the portrayal of workers by mainstream Victorian writers, Chartist verse is intellectual, complex, and socially conscious and reflects an international outlook.

Page 30 - AN old, mad, blind, despised, and dying king ; Princes, the dregs of their dull race, who flow Through public scorn — mud from a muddy spring ; Rulers, who neither see, nor feel, nor know. But leech-like to their fainting country cling...
Page 70 - Rattle his bones over the stones; He's only a pauper, whom nobody owns!
Page 28 - More and more mankind will discover that we have to turn to poetry to interpret life for us, to console us, to sustain us.
