I was expecting the LOA edition to be "Winesburg, Ohio" and a collection of later books showing Anderson never showed the same level of talent again. Instead, I found Anderson to be a master craftsman of the short story who was excellent in capturing plot, characters and showcasing subdued emotions--especially in "Unlighted Lamps" which was one of the more haunting stories I have read in some time. While he's not as popular as many of his contemporaries, Anderson is a major American writer. Once again American literature and readers are in the debt of the LOA for showcasing an often neglected writer. Recommended highly.
One must be an educated reader in order to enjoy Anderson's works. I say this because if you don't understand the style in which he writes and the way he uses terminology and prose, you will find his works confusing and hard to understand. Anderson tends to use punctuation sparingly and spelling some words differently from one story to another. He also tends to use excessive amounts of description, but this is builds the bridges between his poeticism and his literary style.
Anderson is truly one of the most unique and interesting writers of American literature there has ever been and he creates a vivid picture in the mind of the characters and the surroundings of the story. This must be why he was one of the most influential writers of the generations that included Hemmingway, Steinbeck, Mailer and Kerouac.
Serious lovers of literature will enjoy Sherwood Anderson.
As many critics have rightly claimed, "Winesburg, Ohio" is a creative force on which many contemporary authors of Anderson's time built their reputation while emulating its style, language, and themes. There are of course in this Collected Stories many other selected short stories that would have been sufficient to make Anderson an authoritative voice in American literature. I am
pleased to have access to all these selections in one volume. And indeed any reader of fine fiction of any culture could do no better than to take up this admirable collection to discover or re-discover a great American writer, one who has long been neglected and who needs to be given his rightful place in our literary world.
