MAGGIE: A GIRL OF THE STREETS, the tale of a pretty young slum girl driven to brutal excesses by poverty and loneliness, was such a sexually frank and realistic portrait of that world that the book had to be first privately printed. Not until three years later was it given official publication.
Despite the snarls of reviewers, the howls of Victorian outrage, Maggie not only survived but achieved enduring greatness.
This novel and GEORGE'S MOTHER, the shorter one which followed, were hailed as the first genuine expressions of Naturalism in American letters and established their creator as the American apostle of an artistic revolution which was to alter the shape and destiny of civilization itself.
