Overview

The Unclassed, by George Gissing, was published in 1994. There is an obvious improvement in style and characterisation if compared to the earlier works of the writer.

The Unclassed is often classed with Gissing's contemporary Hardy and other giants of the era. At times, the hand is a bit too heavy. Largely, the primary reason for reading this book is for another peek into the manners and values of late 19th century England. A glance at Gissing's biography explains much of his emphasis on transcending the shackles of position, and pounding points of honor and virtue.

A layman might find the reading bit too much, for the reading might demand a bit of academic exercise. If you rejoice in reading serious classic literature, this is the book for you.
