Description

Francis Archibald Bruton is known to many as the author of Three Accounts of Peterloo, a book that provides three different perspectives of a tragic event that took place in 1819 in Manchester. Lancashire is perhaps a lesser known book by Bruton, but not at all less exciting, providing an enticing summary of the long and eventful history and a wonderful description of the beautiful nature of the county that used to be the favorite of Wordsworth and so many other poets and writers as well.

Bruton seems to know every stone and every tree in Lancashire, and he has extensive knowledge of its history as well. Though Lancashire is best known as a center of the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, Bruton is more interested in showing a more beautiful and more serene side of it, providing the reader with a very personal tour of the area.

The author might not care about the industry in Lancashire, but he does care for its long history and natural assets, providing a detailed and very intriguing account of both, showing the reader a Lancashire that is radically different from what the area is today. The book is also full of literary references and not only to Wordsworth, but to others as well, including John Ruskin, one of the most well-known art critics and social thinkers of second half of the 19th century and Matthew Arnold, one of the best known sage writers of the Victorian era.

If you liked Lancashire by Francis Archibald Bruton and you are looking for more work by the same author, you can read his Three Accounts of Peterloo mentioned above or you can check out his other books about history such as The Roman Fort of Manchester or A Short History of Manchester and Salford, great books that present the Manchester area from the perspective of someone who really knew and loved it.
