Introduction; Part One: The 'Mental Exercises'; Part Two: Contexts; Faraday and Self-Education; Class and Education; The Improvement of the Mind; The Pleasures and Uses of the Imagination; Notes to the 'Mental Exercises'.
In 1818 London artisans formed a self-help group with the aim of teaching themselves to write like gentlemen. For a year and a half the essay-circle met to read aloud and criticise one another's writings. The "Mental Exercises" they produced are a record of the life and social ideas of artisans in Regency London.
