Upton Sinclair remained undaunted by this sort of criticism, which he would encounter throughout his prolific career. But the book’s most memorable scenes occur in the packinghouse chapters, where beasts and humans alike are ground up and spit out by a profit-driven system they can neither resist nor understand. Sweeping entrails day in, day out, Jurgis observes how injured cows are reprocessed and an exhausted worker stumbles into a vat of boiling lard.

Here is the dramatic expose of the Chicago meatpacking industry at the turn of the century that prompted the investigation by Theodore Roosevelt which culminated in the pure-food legislation of 1906. The Jungle is the story of Jurgis Rudkus, a Slavic immigrant who marries frail Ona Lukoszaite and seeks security and happiness as a workman in the Chicago stockyards.

Finally, in accordance with Sinclair's own creed, Rudkus turns to socialism as a way out.
