" It is not wonderful that such a man as Butler
should be the author of * Erewhon/ a shrewd and
biting satire on modern life and thought — the best
of its kind since ' Gulliver's Travels.' . . . To
lash the age, to ridicule vain pretension, to expose
hypocrisy, to deride humbug in education, politics,
and religion, are tasks beyond most men's powers ;
but occasionally, very occasionally, a bit of genuine
satire secures for itself more than a passing nod of
recognition. * Erewhon,' I think, is such a satire."
— Augustine Birrell, in The Speaker.
