This thesis gives an analysis of several novelists treatment of the subject of factory life in the north of England during the period 1832-55. No comprehensive and detailed analysis has yet been made of this aspect of the fiction of this period, but it has been judged it would be more useful to explore themes and techniques than to try to follow a preconceived line of argument which might lead to a distorted representation of the novels.
