The Story of The Mask of Anarchy, from Shelley to the Triangle Factory Fire

The Story of The Mask of Anarchy, from Shelley to the Triangle Factory Fire

I have a treat in store for members of the Shelley Nation.  Michael Demson’s book, Masks of Anarchy tells the story of two political radicals and the poem that brought them together:  Percy Shelley and the early 20th Century union organizer he inspired, Pauline Newman.  Demson, in collaboration with illustrator Summer McClinton, accomplishes this through an unusual medium: a radical comic. This gets my RPBS "Stamp of Champ, You Must Read This" recommendation! You can get the eBook for about $14 CDN and the paperback for $8.  This is an unbelievable bargain. Just DO IT!
