Literature on Different Party Ideologies

(2001: P.7)
Writers like Walter Greenwwood and Lewis Jones are a perfect example of such writers whose works were representing certain ideologies that were held by particular parties and they mainly wrote about how these ideologies affected the working class community. Lewis, for instance, 'was a strong Communist and he actively participated in marches of the unemployed during the 1930s' (Morgan, 1998: P.238).His novel 'We Live' looks into the characters of human relationships with the vivid accounts of the social and industrial struggles at that time. 'We Live' which was published after his death in 1939 was an extra-ordinary saga of the miners from Black Friday in 1921 down to the late thirties, in which the protagonist, Len is influenced by Mary, a teacher, and the Communist Party, which becomes central to his work both underground and in the union politics, and his decision to leave and fight in the Spanish Civil War.
Williams in his book 'Writing in The Society' acknowledges that Lewis Jones brings out a class struggle that is family-based and its presence is explicit in the experience of the Miners' Federation and the Communist Party (1983: P. 236). ...
Jones's novel traces the rejection of a working class leader, Ezra, with emotional accusations of betrayal that mark the process of change. Len the protagonist in this story presents reforms through parliamentary means as old-fashioned. Len's efforts have a purpose:
His purpose is to promote the need for mass mobilization of workers behind the Communist Party as opposed to the reforms by parliamentary means championed by the Labour Party. He represents the difference between the two approaches in the struggle between Len and his father-in-law Ezra Ezra is bitter towards the company. He is portrayed as hard and determined to fight -either we fight or starve- and he inspires the miners (Dickenson, 2006: P.225).
Ezra's participation in the existing power structure, his being honoured by being made the Justice of the Peace and his being the Labour Party Councillor makes the others see him as a traitor who has irreversibly betrayed the people. They see his efforts as being hopeless procrastinations since they are determined to make him to succumb to the anti-working class influence, hence the efforts to use the parliamentary representations is quite useless.
In Dickenson's opinion, we see that Jones demonstrates solidarity of the community in its action against exploitation. Norquay and Smyth in their book-Across the Margins- refer to the phrases in Jones book where he demonstrated the unity of the community in fighting. In his book, he has made a socialist declaration, "keep close to people. When we are weak they'll give us strength. When we fail, they'll pick us up put us back on the road again" (1979 [1939]: P.144). There's also his reference to the red socialist flag that shows the way to revolution and ...Show more

Summary

Most of the writers in Wales around 1915-1945 were inclined towards writing on different party ideologies for example communism so that most of their writings were partisan and often intensely ideological. For this reason, they captured imperishably the heroism, compassion and comradeship of working people of Wales during these years when most workers were suffering under the hands of few rich people trying to privatize firms…
