Injustice in Richard Jefferies' World
Readings from the floor
Of all the odd movements that have been started in the last few years, this for ornamenting the cottage with works of art is the most grotesque. To suppose that any man is likely to be the better because a picture is graciously hung on his walls above the heads of squalling children, and over the table scarcely supplied with bread, is indeed a monstrous perversion of common-sense.
(The Dewy Morn, Ch.XLVII)
With maturity it is evident that Richard Jefferies had a growing empathy for his fellow wo/man and sought justice and equality for all.
