Henry Mayhew

出生: 25/11/1812 逝世: 25/07/1887 性别: Male 类型: Investigative Journalism 职业: Social researcher, journalist, playwright

A sometime editor of the satirical magazine Punch, Henry Mayhew was born into a conservative family, but his traditional ideals were called into question in 1849 when he began reporting on the devastating effects on the poor of a cholera outbreak in Bermondsey, south London. Taking the form of verbatim interviews that carefully preserve the grammar and pronunciation of every interviewee, Mayhew’s London Labour and the London Poor was a ground-breaking work of investigative journalism. In its comprehensiveness and documentary honesty, the work was adopted as a key text by social reformers of all kinds.
