Enraged and embittered at the transformatory experience of his own emigration, Smith used fiction to explore Yorkshire immigrants culture and stubborn refusal to assimilate, their vital sexuality, and their vivid social customs. As Smiths writings reveal, emigration involves grief and anger, often universally concealed and problematic.

Adopting a transnational perspective, Mary H. Blewett links Smiths fictional community to empirical data on the substance of working-class lives both in Yorkshire and in New Englands worsted textile industries.
