Rate this:
The Ordeal of Richard Feverel (1859) concerns Sir Austin Feverel's misconceived attempts to educate his son Richard according to a system of his own devising. Embodied in Sir Austin's anonymously published 'The Pilgrim's Scrip', the system is based on theories of sexual restraint and finds little favour with Richard.Although the wider Victorian reading public was not amused, the novel won a cult following.
