93 editions published between 1872 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 1,118 libraries worldwide
Samuel Butler (1835 - 1902) was a Victorian novelist who wrote in many genres. The Way of All Flesh and Erewhon are his most famous novels. Besides fiction Butler also wrote on evolution, Christian orthodoxy, Italian art, literary history and translated the Illiad and The Odyssey. Erewhon is a utopian satire of Victorian England published in 1872. The title is the name of a fictional country and it is also the word nowhere spelled backwards. The beginning of the book deals with the discovery of Erewhon, which is based on Butlers time in New Zealand where he worked on a sheep ranch for four years. The novel satirizes religion, anthropocentrism, and criminal punishment.
Erewhon revisited by Samuel Butler ( Book )
37 editions published between 1901 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 940 libraries worldwide
In his accustomed way, Butler plants a "seedling idea", in this case, the supposed miraculous ascent of Higgs from Erewhon twenty years before. EREWHON REVISITED continues Butler's classic story of the lost country of Erewhon. All the skill which Butler had acquired by his controversies in marshalling evidence and in reviewing a whole system of thought in all its bearings is put to the happiest use, especially in the effects of climax made possible by the structural perfection of the work -- the furious outburst of Higgs against Hanky, for instance, in the cathedral; and, again, the ecclesiastical round table conference, debating whether Sunchildism shall be supported as a supernatural religion or not.
