Things as They Are; or The Adventures of Caleb Williams (often abbreviated to Caleb Williams) is a three-volume novel written as a call to end the abuse of power by what Godwin saw as a tyrannical government. 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 secret. As he digs deeper into Falkland's past and finally unearths the horrible 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.
