Letters on Liberty: Folk and the radical English tradition
Brian Denny reminds us that the English folk tradition isn’t all maypoles and Morris dancing – the radical roots of English culture run deep. Looking at the seminal work by Edgell Rockford, A Handbook For Freedom, Brian explores the rich history of liberty lovers, from poets and musicians to Chartists and Diggers to philosophers and preachers. He argues that we must remember the working-class history of radical folk and rebellion in order to build a more democratic and freedom-loving future.
