Overview

Thyrza by George Gissing deals with poverty and the working classes, as seen at first hand in his life. The descriptive narrative reveals the hard facts of the contemporary society.

In the opening scene of the novel, Mr. Newthorpe, his daughter Annabel, and their visitor (Annabel's Cousin), Miss Paula Tyrrell are sitting at the breakfast table. It was a small, low, soberly-furnished room, the walls covered with carelessly-hung etchings and water-colours, and with photographs which were doubtless mementoes of travel; dwarf bookcases held overflowings from the library; volumes in disorder, clearly more for use than ornament. The casements were open to let in the air of a July morning. Between the thickets of the garden the eye caught glimpses of sun-smitten lake and sheer hillside; for the house stood on the shore of Ullswater.

The story begins to unfold in layers and keeps the readers completely absorbed.
