excessive Wages (1930) was once Dorothy Whipple's moment novel. it really is a few lady referred to as Jane who will get a badly-paid activity in a draper’s store within the early years of the final century. but the name of the publication is predicated on a Carlyle citation – ‘Experience doth take dreadfully excessive wages, yet she teacheth like none different’ – and Jane, having kept a few cash and been lent a few by way of a chum, opens her personal dress-shop.

As Jane Brocket writes in her Persephone Preface: the radical ‘is a party of the Lancastrian values of labor and stubbornness, and there will be no finer atmosphere for a shop-girl-made-good tale than the county during which cotton was once king.’
