Regular price $9.00

William Dean Howells: The Shadow of a Dream and An Imperative Duty, 1962 edited by Edwin H. Cady, comprises two novellas written by the American author in the late 1890s.

The fictional stories explore the power of dreams and miscegenation anticipate a psychological significance in modern society:

  • The power of our dreams in The Shadow of a Dream (1890)
  • The agonies of miscegenation in An Imperative Duty (1891)
Both tales show Howells's "plunge into psychological realism" in the late 19th century and epitomize the insight and courage of the writer who is referred to as "the Dean of American Letters."

The red hardcover book is in good vintage / antique condition. There are a few marks throughout the book, mainly on the final flyleaf as well as a name on the front flyleaf. The dust jacket is worn and ragged, but the hardback book itself has only slight shelf wear and a strong and firm binding.

The book measures 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 3/4 inch and has 235 pages and includes a Bibliography for reference. 

This is a nice collectible book, especially for those interested in American fiction and literature of the Victorian Era.
