It’s curious to be so reluctant to help with this fact of professional life: that we are distanced by time from the books we most often want to discuss.

In 1819 Cobbett published an English grammar, addressed to ‘Young Persons’, and ‘more especially’ to’ soldiers, Sailors .

In 1819 Cobbett published an English grammar, addressed to ‘Young Persons’, and ‘more especially’ to’ soldiers, Sailors, Apprentices and Plough-boys’. Cobbett’s design is to challenge the monopoly of literacy claimed by those who had enjoyed a classical education, and hence to challenge the monopoly of political power to which, they claimed, their education entitled them.

The period covered by this book was one of considerable repression and rigid class divisions in England, and ideas about language both maintained and justified this state of affairs. Concepts of vulgar and refined language reinforced class distinctions and, at moments of political conflict, such as trials for sedition, these ideas were used to deny political and social rights to those deemed "vulgar." Challenging this form of linguistic repression was a radical movement which aimed to make society more democratic. Olivia Smith's fascinating book examines these accepted ideas about language, discusses the forms in which they were disseminated and analyzes the challenging new opinions from both the radical literati and the self-educated men--Wordsworth, Coleridge and John Thorne Took on the one hand, and Cobbett, Thomas Spense, and William Hone on the other.
