Excerpt from Winesburg Ohio: Intimate Histories of Every-Day People

That in the beginning when the world was young there were a great many thoughts but no such thing as a truth. Man made the truths himself and each truth was a composite Of a great many vague thoughts. All about in the world were the truths and they were all beautiful.

Outstanding piece of American literature

NYPL Staff Pick
Quite possibly the original novel of stories work, Sherwood Anderson's novel debuted over 100 years ago. Each solitary character gets a chapter; the chapters in turn are lightly woven together around a shared small town and a visiting reporter. I read this book in high school and think about often many years later.

Rather than an idyllic portrayal of american small town life, these connected stories are about psychological isolation, loneliness, and frustration brought about by small town mores. Anderson possesses brilliant insight into humor thought and emotion and expresses his vision with beautiful prose.

At first I did not understand why this was such a classic, but I did understand many of the things after I read the commentary. Finally, I simply saw much humor in the stories. Which person was crazier! In the chapter, "Queer," when Elmer finished talking to Mook, Mook went to tell someone that Elmer was crazy, but he was telling his cows. Glad I read this.
