Samuel Butler's Erewhon Revisited (1901) is a satirical sequel to his highly successful Erewhon. Mr. Higgs meets many unpleasant accidents and surprises in Butler's utopian nation. A new religion has come into existence as a result of distorted and misunderstood sayings, and corruption has taken over society. Butler's satire touches on subjects ranging from Darwin's theories of biological evolution to the intelligence of machines.

About the Author:

Samuel Butler (1835-1902) is best known for his utopian satire “Erewhon”, his posthumous novel “The Way of All Flesh”, and his translations of Homer. His family background made a career in the Church inevitable, but, while serving a low-income parish in London, he began to question his faith. He lived in New Zealand for five years, and later in life spent time in Italy.
