Melville and the Mill Girls

Hey all, my pal Kassie Baron just publishes a short blog post about women’s mill work and its connection to Herman Melville’s “Tartarus of Maids.” It dovetails nicely from our conversations with Graham Thompson and elsewhere about labor and literary production. You can read it here: https://uihumanitiesforthepublicgood.com/2020/06/25/melville-and-the-mill-girls/

She writes, “The history of women’s labor is a history full of triumph and heartbreak, perseverance and setbacks.”
