This thesis is an examination of the characterization of Thomas Jefferson Durgin, the protagonist of The Landlord at Lion's Head by William Dean Howells. As a character study rather than an evaluation of the novel itself, its objective is to examine and establish Durgin as the aesthetic success which Howells considered him.
