Read full description of the books:
As one of the first novels to really support the rights of the English poor its descriptions of both rural and urban destitution are interesting accounts that did influence some public thought. However, as a novel, Kingsley's tale is often long winded, dense and in the case of some characters unreadable.
While this Chartist novel is an important text for the movement and for literary analysis of the time period I wouldn't recommend it as a 'classic read'. For an easier time I'd stick with Dickens.

He was educated at Helston Grammar School before studying at King's College London, and the University of Cambridge. Charles entered Magdalene College, Cambridge in 1838, and graduated in 1842. He chose to pursue a ministry in the church. From 1844, he was rector of Eversley in Hampshire, and in 1860, he was appointed Regius Professor of Modern History at the University of Cambridge.
His writing shows an impulse to reconfigure social realities into dream geographies through Christian idealism.
