What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Leather Binding, Rebound, Signed Binding
The second impression of the Sixpenny Edition, and the fourth edition overall, of this compelling Victorian novel, Yeast: A Problem.
Yeast: A Problem, originally published in 1848, is a novel of social injustice and an attack on Roman Catholicism, the Oxford Movement, game laws, and insufficient housing for the poor. It presents the inequalities of the English social class system in stark narration, and was inspired by the works of Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle.
Written by Charles Kingsley (1819-1975), a socialist priest of the Church of England, who believed in social reform, labour cooperatives, and social equality. He is a key figure of the Victorian novelists, alongside Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray.
