William Dean Howells: Novels 1886–1888

The Minister’s Charge | April Hopes | Annie Kilburn
Edited by Don Cook

“In The Minister’s Charge and Annie Kilburn, Howells dramatized with striking clarity the disparities of wealth and poverty in Boston. These stories reflect Howells’s claim that social evils occur because good men do nothing and that we are independently responsible for the economic disorder that afflicts society.” — The Wall Street Journal
