Abstract:

"For William Dean Howells, the 1880s throbbed with literary warfare over theory and criticism (realism), and social justice. But the terrible climax was more personal and came in the death of his daughter in 1889. The blow altered him radically. Among other changes, a poetry new to him emerged, a poetry in the modern tradition." "Pebbles, Monochromes, and Other Modern Poems, 1891-1910 presents the poetry of a Howells shockingly new even to scholars. It is metaphysical, agnostic, and ironic with a modern voice."--Jacket.
