Abstract:

Evil appears in a limited number of guises in Howells’ world. There is suggestion of the seducer drawn from the literary stereotype; a few men are bad by drink. The various evils, Howells depicted and emphasized disclose the strength of his work more than do the character­izations of goodness. The shadowy figure of the seducer is of minor importance. Rather, Howells’ concern with evil goes outward from the individual to the society, and his most forceful drunkards and their actions have large social consequences. Primarily, Howells is concerned with attitudes as it exists in the actions and thoughts of his characters and in the particular ills besetting society.

Keywords: evil, seducer, depicted, emphasized, drunkards, consequences.
