9780140186550: Winesburg, Ohio (Penguin Modern Classics)

Anderson profoundly changed the American short story, transforming it from light, popular entertainment into literature of the highest quality. His art belonged as much to an oral as a written tradition, and, as this collection shows, the best of his stories echo the language and the pace of a man talking to his friends. They explore with penetrating compassion the isolation of the individual and capture the emotional undercurrents hidden beneath ordinary events.

-When he calls himself a 'poor scribbler' don't believe him. He is not a poor scribbler . . . he is a very great writer.---Ernest Hemingway
-Winesburg, Ohio, when it first appeared, kept me up a whole night in a steady crescendo of emotion.---Hart Crane
-As a rule, first books show more bravado than anything else, unless it be tediousness. But there is neither of these qualities in Winesburg, Ohio. . . . These people live and breathe: they are beautiful.---E. M. Forster
-Winesburg, Ohio is an extraordinarily good book. But it is not fiction. It is poetry.---Rebecca West

Book Description Softcover. Book Condition: New. Winesburg, Ohio (1919) is Sherwood Anderson's masterpiece, a cycle of short stories concerning life in a small Ohio town at the end of the nineteenth century. At the centre is George Willard, a young reporter who becomes the confidant of the town's 'grotesques' - solitary figures unable to communicate with others. George is their conduit for expression and solace from loneliness, but he has his own longings which eventually draw him away from home to seek a career in the city. He carries with him the dreams and unuttered words of remarkable characters such as Wing Biddlebaum, the disgraced former teacher, and the story-telling Doctor Parcival.
