A semi-autobiographical novel that attacks Victorian era hypocrisy as it traces four generations of the Pontifex family. Butler dared not publish it during his lifetime, but when it was published, it was accepted as part of the general revulsion against Victorianism.


  • Boring

    I can’t believe I got all the way through this book. I am going to re-read dickens books or George Eliot or any number of other greats rather than read any more of Samuel butler‘s books.
