Abstract:

"The Turmoil" by Booth Tarkington, is the first novel in the "Growth" trilogy. Originally published in 1915, "The Turmoil" takes place in a fictional mid-west. The name of the trilogy is appropriate, not only because these novels deal with the growth in the country, and the affect of industrialization on society, but also with Tarkington's growth as an author. This is a narrative of loss and change, a love story, and a warning about the potential evils of materialism. The book chronicles two midwestern families, the Sheridans and the Vertrees, trying to cope with the onset of industrialization.
