About the Author

Samuel Butler (1835-1902) was an English novelist, essayist, and critic. He wrote on Christian orthodoxy, evolutionary thought, and Italian art.  He is best known for Erewhon (1872) and The Way of All Flesh (1903), a semiautobiographical novel, which, with ferocious wit and palpable anger, skewers the pernicious effects of religious hypocrisy.
