Description
With a plot like a suspense thriller-in which Caleb tracks down his master Squire Falkland's guilty secret, only to be pursued himself as a potential betrayer-Caleb Williams was both acclaimed and denounced when it first appeared in 1794. Some critics acclaimed it as a remarkable psychological novel, a tour de force of detection and pursuit; while others, mouthpieces of Pitt's government, denounced it as a piece of evil political subversion. The latter were certainly right to read it anxiously, for it stands as an inspired imaginative contribution to the radical cause in the debate that surrounded the French Revolution, a key text in what has been called 'perhaps the last real discussion of politics in this country'. On all fronts it is a gripping novel.
