Martin Eden

Publisher: New Canadian Library
A brilliant critique of class hierarchies and The American Dream.
 
Martin Eden is in love with Ruth Morse, but their union cannot be. Eden is a poor, uneducated sailor, and Ruth comes from a bourgeoisie family. To allow them to be together, Martin commits to a tireless enterprise of education and self-refinement, hoping to elevate himself to the upper classes through literary achievements. But if he makes it, will Martin like what he finds?
