Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
'Winesburg, Ohio' was published 1919, to much critical acclaim. Using the narrative voice of George Willard, and following this character intermittently throughout the book, the author skillfully blends a series of apparently unrelated short stories into a unified theme of human aspiration and disappointment. Anderson is scornful of too materialistic a view of existence, and suspicious of 'absolute truth'. Many of the characters in 'Winesburg' fail in their lives precisely because they cling unthinkingly to one particular principle. The book may purport to concern only the inhabitants of a fictional American town but, in truth, it is the tale of Everyman, a universal story of humanity.
Amazon.com Review
Library Journal praised this edition of Sherwood Anderson's famed short stories as "the finest edition of this seminal work available." Reconstructed to be as close to the original text as possible, Winesburg, Ohio depicts the strange, secret lives of the inhabitants of a small town. In "Hands," Wing Biddlebaum tries to hide the tale of his banishment from a Pennsylvania town, a tale represented by his hands. In "Adventure," lonely Alice Hindman impulsively walks naked into the night rain. Threaded through the stories is the viewpoint of George Willard, the young newspaper reporter who, like his creator, stands witness to the dark and despairing dealings of a community of isolated people.
