  • "On one level, An American Tragedy is the story of the corruption and destruction of one man, Clyde Griffiths, who forfeits his life in desperate pursuit of success. On a deeper, more profound level, the novel represents a massive portrayal of the society whose values both shape Clyde's tawdry ambitions and seal his fate."

On a deeper, more profound level, however, the novel represents a massive portrayal of the society whose values both shape Clyde's tawdry ambitions and seal his fate: it is an unsurpassed depiction of the harsh realities of American life and of the dark side of the American Dream."@en
  • "Glyde Griffiths je syn pouličních kazatelů v malém americkém městě. Touží po bohatství a vynikajícím společenském postavení. Když se stane hotelovým poslíčkem, je stržen lehkomyslným životem svých kolegů. Po automobilovém neštěstí, na němž nese vinu i on, uprchne do cizího města a změní jméno. Padne na něj podezření, že zavraždil svou dívku, která se v jeho přítomnosti utopila. Brzy je zatčen a po dlouhém přelíčení popraven na elektrickém křesle. "Realistická věrnost zobrazení amerického života, to, že Dreiser dovedl zachytit co nejvíce jeho stránek, činí román zvláště cenným. Jasně nám ukazuje úpadkovost kapitalistické společnosti, její chorobný ráz." (Vl. Smrž.)"
  • "A portrayal of early twentieth century American society and a man whose life is ruined by greed."
  • "Vrcholné dílo Dreiserovo, řadící se čestně vedle velkých obrazů amerického života, Dos Passosovy trilogie U.S.A. a Steinbeckových Hroznů hněvu. V tragickém příběhu mladého člověka, který v touze po bohatství a vynikajícímspolečenském postavení se neštítí ani vraždy, autor zachytil mnoho stránek amerického života a obžaloval společnost, která byla spoluvinna na hrdinově zoufalém pokusu vymanit se ze svého postavení."
  • "Story of a poor young man who was raised as a Christian, but now is driven by the desire for wealth and a place in respectable society.

Consumed with fear and desire, he becomes obsessed with the idea of murder."
  • "This novel tracks the process by which an ordinary young man is capable of committing a ruthless murder, and the further process by which social and political forces come into play after his arrest. In Clyde Griffiths, the impoverished, restless offspring of a family of street preachers, we see a portrait of a man whose circumstances and dreams of self-betterment conspire to pull him toward an act of unforgivable violence."@en
