    Book details

A prolific writer, Howells is regarded as 'the father of American Realism.' Although not an exciting writer, he broke new grounds which led to the achievements of Mark Twain and Henry James. In Howells' view, writing should be 'simple, natural, and honest' and should not delve into 'romantic exaggeration.' His famous definition of the function of a writer indicates his limitations as a Realist writer and of Realism as he conceived of it: 'Our novelists, therefore, concern themselves with the more smiling aspects of life, which are the more American, and seek the universal in the individual rather than the social interests.'
