Steedman’s approach to this topic mingles the traditional tools of social historians with a more innovative cultural-literary approach

Carolyn Steedman’s Master and Servant joins this crowded field, bringing into view two important categories that Thompson had ignored: female domestic servants and Anglican clergymen. In doing so, she offers an important new lens for reading the now mythical story of the making of the working class. Steedman’s approach to this topic mingles the traditional tools of social historians with a more innovative cultural-literary approach. Using the copious diaries of the Halifax Anglican clergyman John Murgatroyd, she unfolds the fabric of his relationship with his long-time domestic servant Phoebe Beatson. Carolyn Steedman is Professor of History at the University of Warwick. Her previous publications include Strange Dislocations. Childhood and the Idea of Human Interiority, 1780-1980 (1995) and Dust (2001).

Leading historian Carolyn Steedman offers a fascinating and compelling account of love, life and domestic service in eighteenth-century England. This book, situated in the regional and chronological epicentre of E. P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class and Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, focuses on the relationship between a Church of England clergyman (the Master of the title) and his pregnant maidservant in the late eighteenth century. This case-study of people behaving in ways quite contrary to the standard historical account sheds new light on the much wider historical questions of Anglicanism as social thought, the economic history of the industrial revolution, domestic service, the poor law, literacy, education, and the very making of the English working class. It offers a unique meditation on the relationship between history and literature and will be of interest to scholars and students of industrial England, social and cultural history and English literature.
