Abstract:

The Jungle is a 1906 novel written by author and socialist journalist Upton Sinclair. It was written about the horrifying conditions and corruption of the American meatpacking industry and stockyards in Chicago during the early 20th century. The novel depicts in harsh tones the poverty, absence of social programs, unpleasant living and working conditions, and hopelessness prevalent among the "have-nots", which is contrasted with the deeply rooted corruption on the part of the "haves". The sad state of turn-of-the-century labor is placed front and center for the American public to see, suggesting that something needed to be changed.
