This chapter examines Margaret Harkness’s novel George Eastmont, Wanderer (1905). It focuses on the tensions between individualism and collectivism in the novel’s representation of the late nineteenth-century socialist and trades union movements. It demonstrates how such tensions are evident in the novel’s representation of the City of London Corporation Buildings, and explores how the novel’s radical departure from generic conventions offers a suggestion of ways to address such tensions.

Keywords:   Margaret Harkness, George Eastmont, Wanderer, Socialist Movement, Trades Union Movement, City of London, Corporation Buildings, Individualism, Collectivism
