Allan Chace and OTher Poems – John Cornfield Jnr.
The series continues with John Cornfield Junior’s Allan Chace & Other Poems. This work was first published in 1877 by E.W. Allen, Stationers’ Hall Court, London. John Cornfield was a native of Bilston . He was a radical with a strong sense of social justice which is passionately evident in the epic length title poem that rails against the iniquities and inequities of the day. “The writer’s enthusiasm for his subject burns with a force that makes some of Cornfield’s high profile contemporaries seem meagre in comparison.” Paul McDonald, author of Surviving Sting
