The Jungle, Upton Sinclair
In some of the most harrowing scenes ever written in modern literature, Upton Sinclair vividly depicts factory life in Chicago in the first years of the twentieth century. The hor- rors of the slaughter houses, their barbarous working conditions . . . the crushing poverty, the disease, the depravity, the despair— he reveals all through the eyes of Jurgis Rudkus, a young immigrant who has come to the New World to build a home for himself, his fiancée, and her family.
Published in 1906, The Jungle aroused the indignation of the public and forced a government investigation which led to the passage of the pure food laws. lt also established its young author as a fearless crusader for the rights of the working man — one of the world's leading spokesmen for free- dom, equality and humanity.
