    George Gissingborn the son of a chemist George Gissing bookwas breaking important new ground, as well as responding to significant cultural change in the literary generation after Dickens David Copperfield and Thackeray Pendennis.

Orwell was born in the year that Gissing died, FromGissing wrote short stories, some of which were collected in the volume Human Odds and Ends and other collected volumes were published after his death.

This meant there were "odd" women left over at the end of the equation when the other men and women had paired off in marriage. It includes powerful scenes of the slums of Victorian London and a treatment of prostitution which, for its day, was frank and explicit.

Gissing was educated at Owens College, Manchester, where his academic career was brilliant until he was expelled and briefly imprisoned for theft. It includes powerful scenes of the slums of Victorian London and a treatment of prostitution which, for its day, was frank and explicit. Clym Yeobright who has returned to the area to become a schoolmaster seems to offer everything she dreams of: passion, excitement and the opportunity to escape.
