Chapter Summary

For those who have traversed in their own lives the journey between working-class and university life, or between Wales and England, the felt experience is a movement towards and not away from theorising. To travel in class and in place is also to travel in time through the social strata laid down at different periods in the past hundred years. One can be forced to ask for a view of history because one discovers that one is oneself what the past has made one. All of Raymond Williams's work is touched with an entirely admirable and unobtrusive self-consciousness of this kind. Williams approaches social change through thought about social change. In Culture and Society he discusses the variety of descriptions which people have offered in theories, in novels, in polemical tracts and literary criticism, of social changes since the industrial revolution.

Keywords:Culture and Society; industrial revolution; literary criticism; Raymond Williams; social change; university life; working-class
