    Theodore Dreiser s Sister Carrie was the first real book I ve ever read in English I was 11, my mother just bought me a brand spanking new English dictionary, and my school librarians finally let me roam the section of the library where normally kids were not allowed to wreck havoc in on their own Awed by the idea of a big book in a language I just started to somewhat understand, I reached for it, just missing the muchage appropriate Treasure Island but then why d you think I d ever wa Theodore Dreiser s Sister Carrie was the first real book I ve ever read in English I was 11, my mother just bought me a brand spanking new English dictionary, and my school librarians finally let me roam the section of the library where normally kids were not allowed to wreck havoc in on their own Awed by the idea of a big book in a language I just started to somewhat understand, I reached for it, just missing the muchage appropriate Treasure Island but then why d you think I d ever want to follow rules Needless to say, the combination of Dreiser being way over my head, my limited English skills and only so much patience an 11 year old would have with a dictionary, I soon enough started getting distracted by the afternoon episodes of Duck Tales, and therefore my memory of this book has long been just a bit fuzzy.And so I read it again with a set of grown up eyeballs, sans dictionary this time, armed with a fewgray hairs all twenty of them and a hint of a wrinkleWhen a girl leaves her home a...

    I can t believe I am actually trying to read this again This is an oft flung book, which has fair aerodynamics and, the hardcover copy of which makes a satisfying thunk as it hits the wall.

    I listened to the Blackstone Audiobook which came out Nov 18, 2005 It is not registered here at GR There are two versions of Theodore Dreiser s book The original Doubleday Edition was published in 1900 This, the original, was in fact edited by his wife It has 47 chapters It was consideredeasily accessible to the public the harsh message of new American Naturalism softened The Blackstone audiobook uses this version 80 years later, the Pennsylvania Edition of the book came out I listened to the Blackstone Audiobook which came out Nov 18, 2005 It is not registered here at GR There are two versions of Theodore Dreiser s book The original Doubleday Edition was published in 1900 This, the original, was in fact edited by his wife It has 47 chapters It was consideredeasily accessible to the public the harsh message of new American Naturalism softened The Blackstone audiobook uses this version 80 years later, the Pennsylvania Edition of the book came out It restored what had been cut or altered in the original version It has 50 chapters It is considered harsher in tone Having not read the Pennsylvania Edition , I am unable to comment on that What I can say is that the Doubleday Edition used by Blackstone is dark too It takes a good hard look at human behavior It ...

    In the words of Edmund Wilson, Dreiser commands our respect but the truth is he writes so badly that it is almost impossible to read him Sister Carrie is a bad book Not morally bad, unfortunately That at least would make it interesting In that respect, nothing in this book would be out of place in a Progressive lecture on social purity This line from the first page sets the tone When a girl leaves her home at eighteen, she does one of two things Either she falls into saving hands and b In the words of Edmund Wilson, Dreiser commands our respect but the truth is he writes so badly that it is almost impossible to read him Sister Carrie is a bad book Not morally bad, unfortunately That at least would make it in...

    I returned to this book after nearly two decades away and I found it as juicy and engrossing as ever.I ll be the first to acknowledge that, as stylists go, Dreiser is among the least accomplished of major American novelists Maybe only John O Hara compares, if he s even still considered a major author Dreiser s word choice is noprecise than that of a Ouija board, his sentences as vibrant as chewed galoshes But reading Dreiser for his wordsmithery is like visiting Casablanca for the water I returned to this book after nearly two decades away and I found it as juicy and engrossing as ever.I ll be the first to acknowledge that, as stylists go, Dreiser is among the least accomplished of major American novelists Maybe only John O Hara compares, if he s even still considered a major author Dreiser s word choice is noprecise than that of a Ouija board, his sentences as vibrant as chewed galoshes But reading Dreiser for his wordsmithery is like visiting Casablanca for the waters, or buying Playboy for the articles it rather misses the point Similarly, Dreiser often relies upon too easy a plot devicethe open safe in Sister Carrie, the identical initials in An American Tragedy, etc. So I acknowledge all of that at the outset and...

    Theodore Dreiser and Emile Zola are both in the naturalist camps of literature, and indeed, I found many similarities between Sister Carrie and Nana The major difference however, is that Dreiser choses to lead Hurstwood, his formerly affluent male protagonist to a bitter, self induced end in a flophouse reminiscent of Edith Wharton s House of Mirth , while Carrie, a lowerclass woman who, it could be argued, does bad things for money and material gain, moves up the socio econimic ladder to a po Theodore Dreiser and Emile Zola are both in the naturalist camps of literature, and indeed, I found many similarities between Sister Carrie and Nana The major difference however, is that Dreiser choses to lead Hurstwood, his formerly affluent male protagonist to a bitter, self induced end in a flophouse reminiscent of Edith Wharton s House of Mirth , while Carrie, a lowerclass woman who, it could be argued, does bad things for money and material gain, moves up the socio econimic ladder to a position of security and respectable reknown In contrast, Zola exemplifies the naturalist theory that heredity determines fate, and accordingly, his protagonis...
