“Working Class Poetry
Bridging the Gap Between an Employee’s Essence and their Work”
“This paper examines the role of poetry in enabling a worker to bridge the gap between their soul, their work, their employer, and society. There is little opportunity for creativity in monotonous Blue Collar work. Daily routines are depressing, alienating the worker from job, employer and surroundings. The working class struggle is not only for economic mobility, but to find the means to feel human, in an impersonal work environment with no options.
Professor M. I. Liebler’s Anthology, “Working Words Punching the Clock and Kicking Out the Jams” and the words of 20th Century writers provide the foundation for this paper.”
