  1. Book ImageThe Rise of Silas Lapham

    William Dean Howells, Paul R. Petrie

    “I love teaching The Rise of Silas Lapham because it is a rich opportunity to examine humor, American Dream ideology, and realism (and sentimentalism) in American literature. It’s always worked well in my classes as a text that helps expand and clarify my students’ literary theoretical understanding of realism.”
