Sinclair's intent by writing The Jungle was to expose the abusive labor conditions in the Chicago stockyards as a means of promoting socialism, however the American public was much more horrified by the novel's vivid depiction of unsanitary conditions in the slaughterhouses and meat-processing plants. This was most famous, influential, and enduring of all muckraking novels. If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you want on your shelf.
