Description
A journalist and co-founder of Punch Magazine, Henry Mayhew (181287) shared his friend Charles Dickens's compassion for the poor. Over the course of a decade, Mayhew conducted hundreds of interviews with London's lower classes, creating a composite portrait of a vast but socially marginalized people. A sociologist before the term was even coined, Mayhew perceptively describes the home lives and worldview of these truly Dickensian individuals in such vignettes as "Disguising Badly Made Dolls," "Reusing Dead Eels," and "Clarinet Player Makes Own Teeth," but whenever possible, he lets the people tell their own stories.
