Synopsis
For nearly a century the original edition of Upton Sinclair's classic expose novel, The Jungle, has remained almost entirely unknown. When it was published in 1905, it was a full third longer than the censored commercial edition published the following year. That expurgated commercial edition edited out much of the ethnic flavor of the original, as well as some of the goriest descriptions of the meat packing industry and Sinclair's most pointed social and political commentary. Now, finally, the full text of the original edition of Upton Sinclair's masterpiece is available for the first time in paperback. Except for correction of a few obvious typographical errors, the text of this new See Sharp Press edition is exactly as it appeared in the uncensored, original edition in 1905. In addition to the text, this new edition contains a foreword by Earl Lee concerning the discovery and subsequent suppression of the original edition, and an introduction by Kathleen DeGrave placing the novel in historical context and explaining the pattern of censorship in the commonly known commercial edition, and its consequent major differences from the original edition.
