William Dean Howell's grasp of the realities of the American experience in an age of emerging social struggle as well as his absolute determination to fairly represent every point of view is evident throughout this multifaceted work. Both a memorable portrait of an era and a profoundly moving study of human relationships, A Hazard of New Fortunes fully justifies Alfred Kazin's ranking of Howells as "the first great domestic novelist of American life.""--BOOK JACKET+-+6274020285280932ocn008171396book19820.24Howells, William DeanNovels, 1875-1886FictionThe library of America is dedicated to publishing America's best and most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts.

In Florence, Colville runs into Lina Bowen, sometime best friend of the woman who jilted him and the vivacious survivor of an unhappy marriage. He also meets her young visitor, twenty-year-old Imogene Graham?lovely, earnest to a fault, and brimming with the excitement of her first encounter with the great world.

In his detailed study of works by Charles Brockden Brown, James Fenimore Cooper, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Henry James, Frank Norris, George Washington Cable, William Dean Howells, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner, Chase identifies and traces this tradition through two centuries of American literature. The best novelists, he argues, have found uses for romance beyond the escapism, fantasy, and sentimentality often associated with it. Through romance, these writers mirror the extremes of American culture -- the Puritan melodrama of good and evil, or the pastoral idyll inspired by the American wilderness. The American "romance-novel," as Chase calls it, also exhibits fundamental differences from English fiction. His readings show how works by American writers depart from the ordinary novelistic requirements of verisimilitude, development, and continuity; their works are freer, more daring than those produced by their English counterparts. In particular, they seek out the underside of consciousness: "The intense desire to drive everything through to the last turn of the screw or twist of the knife," Chase states, "often results in romantic nihilism, a poetry of force and darkness." Such distinctions -- between the "novel" as it is commonly understood and the "romance" as Chase defines it, between the nature of English and American consciousness -- are important keys to understanding American fiction and to gaining a clear picture of both its characteristic greatness and its characteristic shortcomings14361ocn000711579book19650.37Berthoff, WarnerThe ferment of realism; American literature, 1884-1919Criticism, interpretation, etc14083ocn044962753file19900.47Olsen, Rodney DDancing in chains the youth of William Dean HowellsBiography& Quot; Dancing in Chains is far more than a sensitive biography (though it is surely that); it is also a model of psychologically informed social and cultural history.
