The new introduction by Stephen Regan examines the novel's vivid depiction of Victorian sub-culture, horse-racing and gambling, the London tavern, and the life of working-class women, and he also explores the stylistic influences of French naturalism and Impressionist painting. The new edition includes considerably expanded explanatory notes that provide helpful glosses on unfamiliar expressions and define a range of horse racing and betting terms. In addition, there is an improved chronology and a new bibliography.
