A Chronicle of English History
8 - 'The Nineteenth Century: Progress and Poetry'
David Ayerst
In this, the last talk of his series, David Ayerst will describe the gradual decline of Western industry that accompanied the opening-up of the North of England as the workshop of the world. After the unsuccessful attempt to organise agricultural labour at Tolpuddle, the Western counties ceased to make important economic history. But this failure was offset by the appearance of Coleridge and Wordsworth, and the Romantic Age of English poetry was born.
David Ayerst was educated at
Haileybury and Christ Church, Oxford. From 1929 to 1934 he was on the editorial staff of the Manchester Guardian ; afterwards he became senior History master at Blundell's, Tiverton. Recently he has been appointed headmaster of King Edward VII School at Lytham St. Annes.
