Winesburg, Ohio; a group of Ohio small town life [by] Sherwood Anderson, introductions by Ernest Boyd.

Winesburg, Ohio is a little-known masterpiece that forever changed the course of American storytelling. Bittersweet and richly insightful, it reveals Sherwood Anderson' s special talent for taking the small moments of life and transforming them into timeless folk tales-a talent that inspired a generation of writers including William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, and John Steinbeck. At the center of this collection of stories stands George Willard, an earnest young reporter for the Winesburg Eagle who sets out to gather the town' s daily news. He ends up discovering the town' s deepest secrets as one by one, the townsfolk confide their hopes, dreams, and fears to the reporter. In their recollections of first loves and last rites, of sprawling farms and winding country roads, the town rises vividly-and poignantly-to life. With polished prose and fresh imagery, Winesburg, Ohio is an American classic that celebrates small town life in the lost days of innocence and good will.

  • "The hopes, fears, and regrets of the residents of a small Ohio town in the 1890s are the stuff of these short stories. Each chapter tells the story of a different citizen of Winesburg. A thread running through the stories is George Willard, a young reporter for the town newspaper, whose wanderings take him all over the town and its surrounding area, and eventually take him away from Winesburg, in order to pursue his dreams and to avoid the life of frustrated ambition that so many of his neighbors have led."@en

"It is so vivid, so full of insight, so shiningly life-like and glowing, that the book is lifted into a category all its own." Indeed, Sherwood Anderson's timeless cycle of loosely connected tales--in which a young reporter named George Willard probes the hopes, dreams, and fears of the solitary people in a small Midwestern town at the turn of the century--embraced a new frankness and realism that ushered American literature into the modern age. "There are moments in American life to which Anderson gave not only the first but the final expression," wrote Malcolm Cowley. "Winesburg, Ohio is far from the pessimistic or morbidly sexual work it was once attacked for being. Instead it is a work of love, an attempt to break down the walls of loneliness, and, in its own fashion, a celebration of small-town life in the lost days of good will and innocence."

In der vorliegenden Neuübersetzung, der ersten seit über 50 Jahren, lässt sich dieser wegweisende US-Klassiker nun endlich wiederentdecken. Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941) wuchs im US-Bundesstaat Ohio auf, nahm verschiedenste Gelegenheitsjobs an, war Soldat und leitete schliesslich eine Farbenfabrik. Nach einem psychischen Zusammenbruch verliess er 1912 Ehefrau und Kinder, um Schriftsteller zu werden. In den Folgejahren entstanden viel bewunderte Short Storys, Romane und Gedichte."

  • "Published in 1919, Winesburg, Ohio is Sherwood Anderson's masterpiece, a work in which he achieved the goal to which he believed all true writers should aspire: to see and feel "all of life within." In a perfectly imagined world, an archetypal small American town, he reveals the hidden passions that turn ordinary lives into unforgettable ones. Unified by the recurring presence of young George Willard, and played out against the backdrop of Winesburg, Anderson's loosely connected chapters, or stories, coalesce into a powerful novel. In such tales as "Hands," the portrayal of a rural berry picker still haunted by the accusations of homosexuality that ended his teaching career, Anderson's vision is as acute today as it was over eighty-five years ago. His intuitive ability to home in on examples of timeless, human conflicts -- a workingman deciding if he should marry the woman who is to bear his child, an unhappy housewife who seeks love from the town's doctor, an unmarried high school teacher sexually attracted to a pupil -- makes this book not only immensely readable but also deeply meaningful. An important influence on Faulkner, Hemingway, and others who were drawn to Anderson's innovative format and psychological insights, Winesburg, Ohio deserves a place among the front ranks of our nation's finest literary achievements."@en

En el centro de estas 22 historias sobre los personajes y la vida de un pueblo del Medio Oeste americano está George Willard. Un joven reportero del periódico local a quien los solitarios del pueblo le hacen sus confidencias. Winesburg, Ohio es la obra maestra de Sherwood Anderson. Este libro, publicado en 1919, influyó tanto en Ernest Hemingway como en John Updike; en Raymond Carver como en Joyce Carol Oates. Es el debut de la modernidad en la literatura americana."@en

  • "This book reveals the secret life of a seemingly placid Midwestern town in the early years of the 20th century. A series of intertwined vignettes, the book looks at the unexpressed desires and dreams of the townspeople as they bare their souls to a young reporter, George Willard. The characters, whom the author refers to as "grotesques," suffer under the repression of a society they feel cannot understand them. Each longs to make a connection to something or someone outside themselves, but can only, at best, make stunted attempts to reach out. Each chapter portrays a defining moment for one of the townspeople, whether it is to be loved, to be accepted or to find God. The young reporter is the blank slate upon which each character projects his or her inchoate hopes and dreams. The result is a picture of a small-town America where white picket fences both bind and separate its lovely inhabitants."
  • "Winesburg, Ohio is one of the most influential twentieth-century works of fiction by an American author. Most of the major American fiction writers who emerged in the 1920s and 1930s including Nobel Prize for Literature recipients William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, and John Steinbeck confessed publicly that Sherwood Anderson and Winesburg, Ohio had inspired their own work. Published in 1919 on the vanguard of the Modernist movement in American literature, Anderson's book is an innovative cycle of interconnected short stories that together form a complex larger work; hence, Winesburg, Ohio is generally referred to as a novel rather than as a short-story collection."
  • "Winesburg, Ohio is a critically acclaimed work of fiction by the American author Sherwood Anderson. The book, published in 1919, is a collection of related short stories, which could be loosely defined as a novel. The stories are centered on the protagonist George Willard and the fictional inhabitants of the town of Winesburg, Ohio. The work explores the theme of loneliness and frustration in small-town America. Anderson conveys the half-conscious thoughts and raw emotions of Winesburg's residents and their inability to express their deep hopes and fears ..."@en
