Abstract

In the late 18th and 19th centuries, the problem of poverty in the English countryside was relatively serious. The radical Cobbett pays attention to the rural society and elaborates on the tax burden, the polarization of rural society and the poverty of agricultural workers in a series of works, not only promoting the parliamentary reforms in 1832 but also arousing widespread concern on rural poverty from the society at that time. By drawing on the research of the famous radical Cobbett from domestic and foreign academic circles, based on many original materials such as newspapers, books and pamphlets in the 19th century, this article combs Cobbett’s account of rural poverty in modern Britain and analyzes its value.
