Description

George Gissing's novel New Grub Street, first published in 1891, was one of the best-sellers of the Victorian era. The novel contrasts high-minded artists with those who forsake art for material gain. The work also has autobiographical elements: the protagonist struggles for recognition and respect in face of growing depravity.
