Autorenporträt
Many people refer to William Dean Howells (1837-1920) as "The Dean of American Letters." He was an American author, literary critic, and editor. Howells, an Ohio native born in Martins Ferry, was a major influence on American writing in the late 19th and early 20th century. During this pivotal time, the United States' shifting social and cultural milieu is reflected in his works. After working as, a journalist for a while, Howells became an editor for a number of well-known literary journals, including the Atlantic Monthly. He was a fervent supporter of literary realism, highlighting the representation of common life and actual people overcoming obstacles in their daily lives. Howells remained dedicated to civic involvement and social transformation throughout his career. As a result of his prolific output, which includes plays, novels, essays, and poetry, he became well-known in the American literary community. In addition to his own literary accomplishments, William Dean Howells' influence may be seen in the way he shaped and promoted the writings of other significant figures in his day.
