Every generation finds in The Way of All Flesh a reaffirmation of youth's rightful struggle against the tyranny of harsh parents and its admirable will for freedom of personal expression. This is a fascinating character study of a young man who survives the influence of a hateful, hypocritical father, a doting mother, and a debauched wife to emerge as a decent, happy human being. It is also a stinging satire of Victorian gentry and of the same traits that exist in our time.
