Welcome to this on-going digital anthology of poems first printed in The Sheffield Register (1787-1794) and The Sheffield Iris (1794-1825). The themes of this poetry are bound to activism, championing the prevailing social causes of their day: religious integration, racial equality, worker’s rights, universal access to education and political enfranchisement for all.
