Product Description

Previous editions of this book, based on the 1911 bowdlerized text, belie the style and intention of Dreiser's original manuscript. This edition not only restores passages critical of society but offers a stronger heroine and a clearer picture of the immigrant mileu into which she - and Dreiser - were born. Freed of the "morality" imposed by the original publisher, this book illustrates how Dreiser's class and ethnic perspectives laid the foundation of American naturalism.

Author Bio

Theodore Dreiser (1871-1945) was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. After a poor and difficult childhood, Dreiser broke into newspaper work in Chicago in 1892. A successful career as a magazine writer in New York during the late 1890s was followed by his first novel, Sister Carrie (1900). When this work made little impact, Dreiser published no fiction until Jennie Gerhardt in 1911. There then followed a decade and a half of major work in a number of literary forms, which was capped in 1925 by An American Tragedy, a novel that brought him universal acclaim. Dreiser was increasingly preoccupied by philosophical and political issues during the last two decades of his life. He died in Los Angeles.
