Samuel Butler. Erewhon

Erewhon by Samuel Butler / Едгин. Сэмюэл Батлер (1872)

Входит в список 1001 книга, которую должен прочитать каждый (№ 144)


An adventure story/satire criticizing hypocritical mores and institutions of the Victorian Age.

Erewhon initially comes off as a Utopian land, but as you delve further into the chapters you realize it's not a utopia at all. Which of course makes sense since the world will most likely never see a Utopian society. And to think that the Victorian culture could conceive it self to be one does make the perfect theme behind this satire.

In fact, things are so backwards in this society that Samuel Butler put the book on hold from being published and then did so anonymously because he feared retribution.
