dc.description.abstract This essay posits some explanations of why the phenomenally popular fictions of two socialist authors from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (Charles Allen Clarke (1863-1935) and A. Neil Lyons (1880-1940)) are now largely forgotten. The serial and short fictions written by these authors had a large readership as they were initially published through the two best-selling socialist periodicals of this era: Clarke through his own Teddy Ashton’s Journal/Northern Weekly (1896-1908) and Lyons through Robert Blatchford’s Clarion (1891-1934). The essay applies some of Raymond Williams’s ideas and theories on the ‘judgment’ and hierarchy imposed on literature to discuss the reasons why these respected and popular authors have been buried by literary history. For Williams, ‘judgment’ separates the ‘good’, mainstream literature from the ‘poor’, dissident fiction and creates a hierarchy based on ‘deviations’ from the mainstream ‘norms’ of genre, community, shared history, global events and regionalism. en
