[Book Fall 1918, n.d.], 16mo, [7], 2-410pp. Butler died in 1902 & Flesh was published in 1903 (20 years after it was written). "Samuel Butler (4 or 5 December 1835 - 18 June 1902) was an iconoclastic Victorian author who published a variety of works. Two of his most famous pieces are the Utopian satire Erewhon and the posthumous novel The Way of All Flesh. He is also known for examining Christian orthodoxy, substantive studies of evolutionary thought, studies of Italian art, and works of literary history and criticism. Butler also made prose translations of The Iliad and The Odyssey which remain in use to this day. His influence on literature, such as it was, came through The Way of All Flesh, which Butler completed in the 1880s but left unpublished in order to protect his family. And yet the novel, begun in 1870 and not touched after 1885, was so modern when it was published in 1903, that it may be said to have started a new school, particularly in the use of psychoanalytical modes of thought in fiction, which "his treatment of Ernest Pontifex [the hero of Butler's novel] foreshadows."
