The Fair Haven, Samuel Butler

The Fair Haven

Although educated and trained for a career in the clergy, Samuel Butler began to harbor serious doubts about his vocation and Christian morals in general at an early age. Although he addressed these issues in earnest debate with his colleagues and family members, Butler's confusion only worsened over time. He began to explore his concerns about Victorian-era hypocrisy in writing, penning a series of philosophically minded novels and social satires, The Fair Haven among them, several of which would not see publication until after Butler's death in 1902.
