George Gissing: The Prize Lodger

Language:
English
Genres:
Fiction & Literature, Realism

George Gissing was an English author considered as one of the most important novelist and short story writer of the late Victorian period. “The Prize Lodger” is a short story, entered in the collection “Human Odds and Ends: Stories and Sketches”, published in 1898. Together with other Gissing's work, the collection is clearly autobiographical, and employs his recurring thematic concerns: his pessimism regarding human relationships; class conflict and the effects of industrialization. There are no doubts, that Gissing's short fiction has a clear place in English literary and social history, because it illuminates the economic and psychological currents of the era as well as the social circumstances and realities of the day, so you will certainly enjoy the short stories, written by the master of the naturalistic genre!
