Biography

Samuel Butler (1835 - 1902) is best known for his utopian satire Erewhon, his posthumous novel The Way of All Flesh, and his translations of Homer.  His family background made a career in the Church inevitable, but, while serving a low - income parish in London, he began to question his faith.  He lived in New Zealand for five years, and later in life spent time in Italy.
