Through 23 connected short stories, the author looks into the lives of the inhabitants of a small town in the American heartland. In a simple and intense style, these psychological portraits of the sensitive and imaginative of Winesburg's population are seen through the eyes of a young reporter-narrator, George Willard. Their stories are about loneliness and alienation, passion and virginity, wealth and poverty, thrift and profligacy, carelessness and abandon. With Winesburg, Ohio, Sherwood Anderson charted a new direction in American fiction, evoking with lyrical simplicity quiet moments of epiphany in the lives of ordinary men and women.More
