story, “The Tartarus of Maids,” portray mills and millworkers in
Industrial-era New England? How do authors, such as Melville and Louisa
May Alcott, incorporate these images of Industrialization into their
fiction? What themes are expressed through such industry-based
literature? Connecticut Review is looking for academic essays addressing
the representation of mills and millworkers in New England literature.
