Download Caleb Williams Or Things As They Are

William Godwins Things as They Are, or: The Adventures of Caleb Williams actually reminded me of Charles Brockden Brown, and that is a very ambivalent, although all in all little flattering thing to say.

However, I think my comparison is justified in that there are at least three similarities between Browns novels and Caleb Williams/5.

Both are present in the book. The hero is Caleb Williams, a secretary for a sullen employer named Falkland, a man who himself was reputed to be the innocent victim of a capital crime.

Caleb spends considerable time prying into the affairs of his employer, who tells Caleb, that he is indeed guilty as charged and warns Caleb to be silent/5(4). Caleb Williams, as other reviewers have mentioned, is not only an adventure, mystery, suspense and social commentary and critique on human abuses, but is also a lesson in vocabulary (so you might want to have your dictionary close by)/5(35).
