Howells, W.D.: A Hazard of New Fortunes. V1. 19-Apr-2013
A Hazard of New Fortunes is a novel by William Dean Howells. Copyrighted in 1889 and first published in the U.S. by Harper & Bros. in 1890, the book was well-received for its portrayal of social injustice. Considered by many to be his best work, the novel was the first of three Howells wrote with Socialist and Utopian ideals in mind: The Quality of Mercy in 1892, and An Imperative Duty in 1893. In this novel, Howells discusses the American Civil War, while also dealing with issues of post-war, "Gilded Age" America, like labor disputes, the rise of the self-made millionaire, the growth of urban America, the influx of immigrants, and other industrial-era problems. A Hazard of New Fortunes is one of Howells' most important examples of American literary Realism. (Wikipedia)
