Lewis Jones (Writer)
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lewis Jones, writer, and political activist of the left, (1897 - January 27, 1939) was born in Clydach Vale in industrialized South Wales. Although his novels are more studied by academics now than by general readers, Jones occupies an honourable place in the history of left-wing politics in Britain, and in the ranks of socialist writers. Like many young activists of his generation he attended the Central Labour College in London from 1923-25, where he joined the Communist Party of Great Britain. During the 1926 General Strike he was imprisoned for three months in Swansea Prison for his trade union activities in the Nottinghamshire coalfield.
