Description
The scenery of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists by Robert Tressel is laid in a fictional English town Mugsborough. The book shows a detailed picture of a social, economic, and cultural life of a British society of the twentieth century. The novel has a sharp political orientation as well, it bitterly criticizes capitalism that, as Tressel, a former painter, considered, was a main reason for social problems and inequity. The novel The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists still belongs to the classic of a world literature.
