Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is a novel by Robert Tressell (17 April 1870 – 3 February 1911) first published in 1914 after his death. An explicitly political work, it is widely regarded as a classic of British working-class literature. Robert Tressell was the nom-de-plume of Robert Noonan, an Irish housepainter, who came back to his native Britain from South Africa at the beginning of the twentieth century. He chose the surname Tressell in reference to the trestle table, an important part of his kit as a painter and decorator (though baptised Croker and usually self-styled Noonan). Based on his own experiences of poverty, exploitation, and his terror that he and his daughter Kathleen — whom he was raising alone — would be consigned to the workhouse if he became ill, Tressell embarked on a detailed and scathing analysis of the relationship between working-class people and their employers.
