  • "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."@en

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. Simultaneous affairs with a factory girl and a rich socialite threaten his goal of becoming a rich and respected gentleman. 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."

  • "克莱德生长在一个先是笃信宗教, 后来贫穷得不得不以宗教从业人士家庭里. 自幼在街上宣传上帝, 却有一个美国梦. 他纵情于酒色和物质享受, 让一个穷姑娘怀了孕, 又不愿意娶她, 因为她会成为累赘, 也因为一个上层社会小姐爱上了他, 于是他设计谋杀了无辜的姑娘, 最终被判死刑."

  • "Z díla největšího amerického pokrokového spisovatele 20. století, z něhož byly u nás dosud překládány pouze romány, vychází nyní výbor deseti povídek, jichž spisovatel napsal celkem 5 svazků a které H. Fast hodnotí jako "vrchol celé americké povídkářské tvorby našeho století vůbec". Dreiserovy příběhy spojuje ústřední myšlenka: ukázat, jak těžko se žije prostému člověku za kapitalistické společnosti, jak se musí rvát o holou existenci, jak je rdousena, znetvořována a ubíjena lidská individualita. Příběhy ukazují, kolik zmařených životů plodí kapitalismus, jak znemožňuje rozvoj nadání a schopností lidí, jak je stravuje neřešitelnými rozpory a problémy, z nichž není za tohoto společenského systému východiska. (Z doslovu.)"

  • ""The corruption of a young man becomes a portrait of the society that shaped his ambitions and destroyed him." "Based on an actual criminal case, 'An American Tragedy' was the inspiration for the film 'A Place in the Sun, ' winner of six Academy Awards, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. "Clyde Griffiths falls in love with and impregnates Roberta, but realizing that another girl will help him succeed, he drowns Roberta.""@en
