Poor white: a novel by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
125 editions published between 1920 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,793 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 )
113 editions published between 1919 and 2017 in English and held by 1,492 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

"In the restaurant the young man began talking of himself. He was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.

Marching men; a critical text by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
62 editions published between 1917 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,117 libraries worldwide
This early work by Sherwood Anderson was originally published in 1917. Marching Men is the story of Norman "Beaut" McGregor, a young man discontented with the powerlessness and lack of personal ambition among the miners of his hometown. After moving to Chicago, he discovers his purpose is to empower workers by having them march in unison. Major themes of the novel include the organization of laborers, eradication of disorder, and the role of the exceptional man in society. The latter theme led post-World War II critics to compare Anderson's militaristic approach to homosocial order and the fascists of the War's Axis powers

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:
The triumph of the egg : a book of impressions from American life in tales and poems by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
59 editions published between 1920 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 392 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

Sherwood Anderson's memoirs : a critical edition. by Sherwood Anderson( Book )
7 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
"At his death in 1941, Sherwood Anderson had spent nine years writing his final autobiography. The huge body of manuscripts, left unorganized and unedited by Anderson, was published in 1942, after being drastically cut and edited to the point of rewriting. Now the memoirs, which still remain the central source of study of Anderson's life and the literary movements in which he participated, have been made available in an accurate, scholarly edition. Mr. White has completely retranscribed over 2,200 pages of Anderson's manuscripts, explained the composition and textual state of work, and annotated the biographical and bibliographical facts of Anderson's career."--Jacket
