Caleb Williams : or, Things as They are Paperback

Edited by Maurice Hindle



When honest young Caleb Williams comes to work as a secretary for Squire Falkland, he soon begins to suspect that his new master is hiding a terrible secret.

But as he digs deeper into Falkland's past and finally unearths the guilty truth, the results of his curiosity prove calamitous when even though Caleb has loyally sworn never to disclose what he has discovered the Squire enacts a cruel revenge.

A tale of gripping suspense and psychological power, William Godwin's novel creates a searing depiction of the intolerable persecution meted out to a good man in pursuit of justice and equality.

Written to expose the political oppression and corrupt hierarchies its author saw in the world around him, Caleb Williams (1794) makes a radical call to end the tyrannical misuses of power.
