WHO IS MY NEIGHBOUR?
Title:Who Is My Neighbour?
Publication:The Bolton Chronicle
Date:6th December 1862
This anonymous poem on the subject of charity was first published in the Quiver magazine. It takes the famous question from the bible and repurposes it to contemporary Britain and the question of deserving poverty. Although the poem does not specifically mention the Cotton Famine, with themes of hunger and slavery it very much treat the prevailing moral questions of the day. – SR
