The study of Chartist, working-class, and laboring-class literatures has thoroughly evolved in recent years. Scholars have broken free from monolithically sociological, biographical, or political readings that only a generation ago too often dismissed artistic endeavors as, at best, merely a re-accenting of the mainstream. Today, critics studying these literatures embrace forms of aesthetic criticism. Though this new analysis works in continuation with politically aware forms of criticism, it uncomfortably corresponds to the rejection of “aesthetics” in other fields. The paper argues that the rejection of “aesthetics” generally fails to recognize marginalized and group aesthetics and, specifically, what it is meant for a political cohort—the Chartists are my example—to think aesthetically.
