Book Description:
The Rise of Silas Lapham is Howell s best known work, and this elegant tale of Boston society and manners is rightly regarded as a subtle classic of its time. Silas Lapham inherits his father s paint business, from which he makes a great deal of money, and moves his family from rural Vermont to cosmopolitan Boston. Attempting to break into the city s sophisticated society he becomes bent on the acquisition of both money and social position. Howells contrasts 'old' and 'new' money, presenting the representatives of both sympathetically and portraying the attempts of the self made man to break into the world inhabited by those from 'established' families with humor and delicacy.
