About the Book

One could consider Jefferies' book to be a groundbreaking piece of post-apocalyptic literature. After a sudden, unexplained tragedy has killed out the majority of England's population, the countryside returns to its natural state, and those who are left choose a fairly archaic way of life. The first section, The Relapse into Barbarism, is a description of the loss of civilization and its consequences by some subsequent historians. It features a lovely depiction of how nature reclaimed England. The second chapter, named Wild England, is an adventure that takes place in a culture and environment that are both wild and takes place many years later. The book's flaws are more than made up for by the great writing, notably the unsettlingly prophetic descriptions of the post-apocalyptic city and countryside. was released by Cassell & Company in 1885. "Everything became green in the first spring after London ended." The novel After London by Richard Jefferies is considered a classic work of "eco-apocalyptic" literature. Jefferies was married in 1874 and relocated closer to London in 1877 while still writing to support his wife and two kids. Though he was both unwell and penniless, the years from 1882 until his death in 1887 were when he was most creative.

About Author

Richard Jefferies

English nature writer Richard Jefferies, who lived from 6 November 1848 to 14 August 1887, is renowned for his portrayals of English country life in his essays, natural history works, and fiction. The setting for all of his major fictional works is drawn from his upbringing on a modest farm in Wiltshire. The writings of Jefferies span a variety of genres and subjects, including science fiction novel After London (1885) and the beloved children's book Bevis (1882). He battled tuberculosis for a significant portion of his adult life, and his troubles with both the disease and with poverty are reflected in his writing. In The Story of My Heart, Jefferies goes into detail on how he cherished and practiced cultivating an intensity of feeling in his perception of the world (1883). The Amateur Poacher (1879) and Round About a Great Estate (1880), two essay collections in which he successfully conveyed his awareness of nature and the people who inhabit it, acquired him at the time the reputation of a natural mystic. However, it is his success in doing so that has attracted the majority of admirers.
