Originally published in 1791, John Oswald’s seminal work is a cry itself, its grammar often in the vocative case, its language sometimes bursting into poetic meter. Oswald was a journalist, a revolutionary, a soldier, a world-wide traveler. He links the destruction of animals to the economic expansion of Europe. The chapters focus on John and the resistance movement to nascent land, the rise of commercial agriculture, and the growth of industrialization during the 17th and 18th centuries in England
