|You might try The Rise of Silas Lapham, which features
Information about The Day of Their Wedding
have acquired a book by WD Howells, it is dated
1896. I haven't much time for research and would appreciate any feed back on
this book. the title is
"The Day Of Thier Wedding"

|The Day of Their Wedding was first published in 1896;
you might try looking in
William Gibson and George Arms's A Bibliography of William Dean Howells (New
York Public Library, 1948; Arno Press, 1971), which would give exact publication
information. Edwin H. Cady lists this as a "novelette" (189) but doesn't give
other information. Try either Kenneth Lynn's biography or William Dean Howells:
A Writer's Life by Susan Goodman and Carl Dawson.
|Howells and Theodor Fontane?
Can anyone tell me whether Howells had any connection
with Theodor Fontane, the German realist? I am looking
at similarities or comparisons in the way Fontane and Howells
treated Engagements, Marriage and Divorce but I have been
unable to find out whether either knew of, or had dealings
with the other. Fontane died in 1898.

Narrative "I" in The Rise of Silas Lapham
QUESTION: Reading The Rise of Silas Lapham, I was struck by, toward
the very end of the book, Howells identifies the narrator with an "I" after
keeping the narrator unknown up until then. I believe he does this twice,
but not until the last part of the story. It was a little distracting
to me. Is there anything written about that shift that could shed light
on it? I'm not a scholar--just a reader who really liked the book, and
I wasn't sure where else to ask such a question.Jeff Hagan email@example.com 3/22/05
