George Willard is a young reporter on the Winesburg Eagle to whom, one by one, the inhabitants of Winesburg, Ohio, confide their hopes, their dreams, and their fears. This town of friendly but solitary people comes to life as Anderson's special talent exposes the emotional undercurrents that bind its people together. In this timeless cycle of short stories, he lays bare the life of a small town in the American Midwest.

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. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


"Winesburg, Ohio, is no mere period piece but a book that helped redirect the course of American literature" (Washington Post)

"An often ironic but always clear-eyed and sharp look at the residents of his fictional town... If there were a required reading list for Americans, this one would be near the top" (Tampa Tribune)

"A landmark in American literature" (Calgary Herald (Canada)) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Rereading Sherwood Anderson after many years, one feels again that his work is desperately uneven, but one is gratified to find that the best of it is as new and springlike as ever. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

4.0 von 5 Sternen "It's A Disappointing Life" 1. Januar 2000
Von Franklyn
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg Ohio" is a poignant and evocative look behind the face of small town America early in this century. The message in this book is not "It's A Wonderful Life", but rather that "It's A Disappointing Life". The writing is eloquent yet simple and conveys the quiet yearnings of the human soul that we all feel from time to time. There is an air of melancholy to the book as the inhabitants are shown to be almost uniformly incapable of expressing their deepest longings, as their dreams are at first deferred, then sadly and ultimately denied. If ever a town needed Jimmy Stewart this is it. Along with James Joyce's "The Dubliners"(1914), and Jean Toomer's "Cane"(1923), "Winesburg Ohio" (1919) forms a trilogy of beautifully written short stories/novellas about a particular city or region. A modern day equivalent would be "Drown", Junot Diaz's stories of Dominicans in the Dominican Republic and New York. And while, Joyce, Toomer, and Diaz are more innovative with language and form than Anderson, all four give revealing character studies of the inhabitants as they go about their daily, ordinary lives, and make you reflect on your own hopes, dreams, and realities.

5.0 von 5 Sternen un libro especial para mi 4. Juni 2000
se que debo volver a leer esta serie de cuentos entrelazados de nuevo y de nuevo, como se que debo volver sobre el camino andado a ver que se me ha perdido. este libro, lleno de pequenas historias y de maniaticos simpaticos que lo rodean, muestra sin embargo una bella inocencia y una bella prosa que hace a uno sentirse bien. el joven narrador anda a traves del pueblo y al final parte lleno de historias a hacer la suya propia. por favor no se lo pierdan es buenisimo LUIS MENDEZ

5.0 von 5 Sternen HOW MANY TIMES WILL YOU READ THIS CLASSIC? 19. April 2000
three, four, five times. maybe more. "winesburg, ohio" is a transcendent reading experience. the equivalent, perhaps, of peering through a magnificent kaleidoscope and watching the colors and patterns turn one way, then the other. by turns funny, sad, but mostly tragic, anderson takes us on a guided tour of a small mid-western town. each vignette, weighing in at merely ten pages apiece, is a jewel of understatement. the language, simple and poetic, is a dream. beyond a dream. and it packs a heartache as real as anything you'll find in a book 5 times its size. the real marvel, however, is when you flip to the beginning and start all over again.

In the context of today's tell-all society, the kinds of human revelations and insights that Sherwood Anderson wove into the Winesburg stories may seem tame and even pedestrian. But at the time, few good writers were even attempting to penetrate into the "real life" experience of ordinary Americans. His efforts so many years ago are all the more valuable today, however, since it provides us a glimpse of what life was *really* like for some people in much-romanticized "small town America."
This novel is really a collection of loosely interrelated short stories, or perhaps even a series of character sketches, but so what? The value here is in the individual images and insights that Anderson provides, not in any emergent "plot."
The glimpses into the inner lives of ordinary Americans and the fine descriptions of place, mood, and events that Anderson provides in this work still speak to some readers, at least, today. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interessante Lektüre 17. April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Der Autor schildert skurrile Ereignisse, deren letzendliche Bedeutung sich jedoch nicht immer erschließt. Es ist auch interessant, sich dadurch in die Vergangenheit zurück versetzen zu lassen.
War diese Rezension für Sie hilfreich?
When I discovered this book, I was already writing a story cycle of my own, The Acorn Stories. Winesburg, Ohio became a strong influence on that book, and also led me to write New Readings of Winesburg, Ohio. In Sherwood Anderson's acclaimed story cycle, a small town finds itself entering the twentieth century with loneliness and confusion. The same industrialism that Anderson would explore so well in his novel Poor White also asserts itself constantly here, turning a beautiful landscape into a sometimes desecrated one.
The young reporter George Willard appears in most of the stories, providing a connection for people who feel they lack connection and a voice for people who feel they lack a voice. Though many readers consider this book a bleak and disjointed novel, I consider it a collection of stories that interrelate in surprising, often brilliant ways. As for the bleak part, please also look at the many moments of comfort, the many sparks of inspiration.
I eventually lost track of how many times I read Winesburg, Ohio. I just know I'll read it again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen When the Farm yields to the Factory. 8. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
The story of George is one of a young man seeking transcendence from the sickened atmosphere around him - namely his hometown, Winesburg. It is a tiny, backward town, where the ideals of personal liberty and identity, of truth and understanding, have been squashed and malformed. Though greatly exaggerated, Winesburg bears elements that we should all recognize in our own homes, and this is, I think, more a criticism of post-agrarian American society than the "celebration of urban life" that this book has been purported to be.
Anderson's writing is consummately elegant, even when it dips into a sexuality ill explored at the time. His characters, too, are most believable, whether you are intended to love them or despise them, and are always quite capable of evoking those emotions, regardless. George, most of all, is wonderfully human, and we rise up with him during his triumphs, and down during his failures. It is a wonderful book.
