Sinopsis de BALLADS AND SONGS OF PETERLOO
This book presents a collection of poems and songs written in the immediate aftermath of the Peterloo Massacre in 1819. It is the first anthology of its kind, and includes over seventy poems, originally published as broadsides, or in radical periodicals such as the moderate&nbsp,Examiner&nbsp,and the ultra-radical&nbsp,Medusa, with many from the most prolific publisher of Peterloo verse, the&nbsp,Manchester Observer. Although the reading of the texts is supported by headnotes and footnotes, the poems are allowed to stand alone, in order to convey as much of the original publication as possible, and to preserve their authenticity. Following an introduction outlining the events before, during and after the massacre, as well as background information on the radical press and broadside ballad, the poems are grouped into six thematic sections. Grouped in this manner, rather than chronologically or by publication, one cannot avoid the similarities between the poems, from the repeated images of brutalised women to numerous exhortations to rise and avenge the slaughter. The poems and songs which tumbled onto the pages of newspapers, journals and broadsides in the ensuing weeks and months convey the range of emotions felt by a downtrodden people
