Poor white: a novel by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

122 editions published between 1920 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a small town in Ohio, a dreamy, rather stupid 'poor white' boy suddenly becomes a rich and famous inventor. This classic novel of Americana, first published in 1920, tells the story of the power unleashed by that happenstance-- a force that overnight dotted a vast valley with cities, built a network of industry, made quick men rich and fearful men poor. In telling of the 'poor white's' love, it shows how the forces that twist men made the boy's story a wild and terrible one, bigger than the mere story of one person."--P. [4] of cover
Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson( )

Through twenty-three connected short stories, the author looks into the lives of the inhabitants of a small town in the American heartland. In a simple and intense style, these psychological portraits of the sensitive and imaginative of Winesburg's population are seen through the eyes of a young reporter-narrator, George Willard. Their stories are about loneliness and alienation, passion and virginity, wealth and poverty, thrift and profligacy, carelessness and abandon
Winesburg, Ohio; a group of tales of Ohio small town life by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

102 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in English and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reveals the secret life of a seemingly placid Midwestern town in the early years of the 20th century. A series of intertwined vignettes, the book looks at the unexpressed desires and dreams of the townspeople as they bare their souls to a young reporter, George Willard. The characters, whom the author refers to as "grotesques," suffer under the repression of a society they feel cannot understand them. Each longs to make a connection to something or someone outside themselves, but can only, at best, make stunted attempts to reach out. Each chapter portrays a defining moment for one of the townspeople, whether it is to be loved, to be accepted or to find God. The young reporter is the blank slate upon which each character projects his or her inchoate hopes and dreams. The result is a picture of a small-town America where white picket fences both bind and separate its lovely inhabitants

Short stories by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

In the winter of 1912, Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941) abruptly left his office and spent three days wandering through the Ohio countryside, a victim of "nervous exhaustion." Over the next few years, abandoning his family and his business, he resolved to become a writer. Novels and poetry followed, but it was with the story collection Winesburg, Ohio that he found his ideal form, remaking the American short story for the modern era. Hart Crane, one of the first to recognize Anderson's genius, quickly hailed his accomplishment:

Many marriages by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

50 editions published between 1922 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

F. Scott Fitzgerald definió Muchos matrimonios una de las mejores novelas de Sherwood Anderson El libro abraza la tesis del fracaso de la institución del matrimonio, es decir de la monogamia. Por esta razón fue vetado en muchas librerías de Estados Unidos y de Inglaterra y creó no pocos problemas a su editor. A pesar de ello Fitzgerald afirmó que no se trataba de un libro inmoral sino de un libro ferozmente antisocial. El mismo Anderson adelantó que al libro se le acusaría de inmoralidad, pero solo porque investigaba en la dirección de una liberación física y mental del ser humano.La novela puede parecer como la simple historia de un adulterio hasta puede parecer de lo más obvio: el jefe con su secretaria, pero la reflexión de Anderson despojada de inhibición, es mucho más profunda y mística, quiere ahondar en la esencia del hombre para entender cuáles fuerzas interiores, a veces inevitables, lo mueven a través de las convenciones sociales.Una reflexión interesante sobre las relaciones sentimentales y resueltamente moderna para la época en la que fue publicadaSOBRE EL AUTORSherwood Anderson (1876-1941), es considerado por muchos el padre de la literatura norteamericana moderna, ha brillado en la forma de la short story. Muy conocido por el gran público gracias a Winesburg, Ohio, una recopilación de relatos que ejerció una profunda influencia en la narrativa norteamericana. Su estilo sirvió de modelo y se puede vislumbrar detrás de muchos autores de la talla de Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Thomas Wolfe, John Steinbeck.EXTRACTOUn hombre llamado Webster vivía en una ciudad de veinticinco mil habitantes en el estado de Wisconsin. Tenía una esposa llamada Mary y una hija llamada Jane, y él mismo era un próspero fabricante de lavadoras. Cuando el asunto sobre el que voy a escribir ocurrió, él rondaba los treinta y siete o los treinta y ocho, y su única hija tenía diecisiete. No será necesario hablar de los detalles de su vida previos al punto en el que una cierta revolución se desató en su interior. No obstante, era un hombre más bien tranquilo, inclinado a tener ensoñaciones que intentaba ahuyentar de su interior con objeto de funcionar como fabricante de lavadoras; y, sin duda, en momentos inesperados, cuando estaba en el tren, con destino a algún lugar, o quizás los domingos por la tarde, en verano, cuando iba solo a la oficina desierta de la fábrica y permanecía sentado varias horas mirando por la ventana a lo largo de los raíles del tren, daba rienda suelta a sus sueños
