Although little-known today, George Gissing's ( - ) second published novel "The Unclassed" deserves to be read and remembered. The book was written in and published as a three-decker novel for which Gissing received the paltry sum of 30 pounds/5(10).

The Odd Women is a novel engaged with all the major sexual and social issues of the late-nineteenth by contemporary reviewers as equal to Zola and Ibsen, Gissing was seen to have produced an 'intensely modern' work and it is perhaps for this reason that the issues it raises remain the subject of contemporary debate/5(74).

Book Review: The Odd Women by George Gissing The Odd Women is my third Gissing of the year, following earlier reviews of New Grub Street and The Emancipated. Chronologically, this one comes later and it draws on the themes of The Emancipated but in a much more coherent and pleasurable style.

George Gissing In the shadow of the atomic bomb it is not easy to talk confidently about progress. However, if it can be assumed that we are not going to be blown to pieces in about ten years' time, there are many reasons, and George Gissing's novels are among them, for thinking that the present age is a good deal better than the last one.

Gissing isn’t really read very much today. His novels – or at least some of them – are still in print, but I doubt if he makes his way onto many syllabuses or reading lists.

Certainly I would not be reading him now if ‘New Grub Street’ hadn’t appeared on. George Gissing's New Grub Street was written at breakneck speed in the autumn of and is considered his best novel. Intensely autobiographical, it reflects the literary and cultural crisis in Britain at the end of the nineteenth century/5(5).
