The Best of John Hartley

An Account of his Life & "The Clock Almanack"

John Waddington-Feather

‘It’s a wonderful caanty is Yorksher.’ The dialect writings of John Hartley (1839–1915) not only capture the everyday speech of Victorian Yorkshire but also document many aspects of its social history. This anthology brings together ten of his poems with selections from his sardonically humorous essays on such diverse subjects as hope, sport, fools, foreign travel and cheating a landlord. A glossary of dialect words is provided.
