Erewhon is a biting satire which caused a sensation when it was first published anonymously in 1872.
Erewhon is an unknown civilisation on the far side of a range of uncharted mountains in a remote colony of the British Empire. It is a form of anti-Utopia in which illness is a criminal offence, children choose their parents and health and beauty signify morality.
Samuel Butler was an iconoclastic Victorian author who published a variety of works, including the Utopian satire Erewhon and the posthumous novel The Way of All Flesh, his two best-known works, but also extending to examinations of 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.
