Overview

Erewhon (Barnes & Noble Digital Library): Or Over the Range by Samuel Butler

Published in 1872, this scathingly satirical utopian novel follows the exploits of a young traveler who finds himself in a strange and remote country where bizarre customs are the rule.  Based on Butler's experiences in New Zealand, and influenced by his reading of Darwin, Erewhon is also notable for its early depiction of machine intelligence.

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 The Way of All Flesh (1903), a semiautobiographical novel, which, with ferocious wit and palpable anger, skewers the pernicious effects of religious hypocrisy.
