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.
