Poor white: a novel by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

118 editions published between 1920 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,849 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 : a group of tales of Ohio small town life by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

106 editions published between 1919 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,548 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

He did no work and was enormously proud of the fact."--Publisher's website
Marching men; a critical text by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

54 editions published between 1917 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sherwood Anderson (September 13, 1876 - March 8, 1941) was an American novelist and short story writer, known for subjective and self-revealing works. Self-educated, he rose to become a successful copywriter and business owner in Cleveland and Elyria, Ohio. In 1912, Anderson had a nervous breakdown that led him to abandon his business and family to become a writer. At the time, he moved to Chicago and was eventually married three more times. His most enduring work is the short-story sequence Winesburg, Ohio, which launched his career. Throughout the 1920s, Anderson published several short story collections, novels, memoirs, books of essays, and a book of poetry. Though his books sold reasonably well, Dark Laughter (1925), a novel inspired by Anderson's time in New Orleans during the 1920s, was the only bestseller of his career. He may be most remembered for his influential effect on the next generation of young writers, as he inspired William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Thomas Wolfe. He helped gain publication for Faulkner and Hemingway (font: Wikipedia)

The triumph of the egg; a book of impressions from American life in tales and poems by Sherwood Anderson( Book )

52 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1921. Anderson, whose prose style, derived from everyday speech, influenced American short story writing between World Wars I and II. He directed the American short story away from the neatly plotted tales of O. Henry and his imitators. The stories in The Triumph of the Egg are characterized by a casual development, complexity of motivation, and an interest in psychological process. Anderson also made his name as a leading naturalistic writer with his masterwork, Winesburg, Ohio, a picture of life in a typical small Midwestern town, as seen through the eyes of its inhabitants. Contents: The Dumb Man; I Want to Know Why; Seeds; The Other Woman; The Egg; Unlighted Lamps; Senility; The Man in the Brown Coat; Brothers; The Door of the Trap; The New Englander; War; Motherhood; Out of Nowhere into Nothing; and The Man with the Trumpet."--Publisher's website
