About the Author

William Dean Howells (1837-1920), a prominent figure in American literature, is often hailed as the 'Dean of American Letters.' Howells' rise from a printer's apprentice to an editor of The Atlantic Monthly placed him at the center of the American literary scene. His tenure at The Atlantic allowed him to encourage and publish works by emerging authors, thus shaping American literary taste. A prolific writer himself, Howells penned over fifty novels, numerous plays, and essays, and positioned himself as a proponent of Realism, reflecting the complexities of American society post-Civil War. His writing style is characterized by its moral earnestness, finely detailed character studies, regional representation, and social critique. Works such as 'The Rise of Silas Lapham' and 'A Modern Instance' highlight his scrutiny of social ethics and the effects of industrial capitalism. His book 'Emile Zola' is a testament to his admiration for Zola's naturalism and reveals Howells' intellectual engagement with European literary movements, which he often measured against the American context. Howells' influence extended beyond his written work; his opinions in literary criticism shaped the reception and standing of literary peers such as Mark Twain and Henry James. His legacy is enduring, with scholars often examining his role in the transition from Romanticism to Realism in American literature.
