Harold Frederic's Social Drama and the Crisis of 1890's Evangelical Protestant Culture
2013 0-7734-4530-7
The books written by Harold Frederic depict a self-made, properly Protestant American. Yet, in some of his books in particular The Damnation of Theron Ware, Frederic depicts self-made women, and challenges the idea that only men can attain culturally-defined success. The works offer an inversion of late 19th century gender-based expectations.
