Paul Gohre's "Three Months in a Workshop: A Practical Study"

Author: 
Paul Gohre

German theology student, Paul Gohre wrote one of the first book length down-and-out stories. He set the scene for many other authors to mimic his undercover reporting of his current lifestyle.

Book Excerpt: 
"The following account is prepared from copious memoranda made during mt experience as a factory hand. A small part of it has been borrowed from articles contributed by me last autumn to the Christliche Welt. I acknowledge the incompleteness of my work, a defect inevitable to a three months' study of the subject. What I actually saw and proved by experience, however, I have tired to describe as objectively as is possible to a man who cannot wholly divest himself of his own personality. . ."
