BeschreibungFor a century, Theodore Dreiser has represented for many readers a rebellious modernism whose novels both critiqued the American dream and embodied a bleakly deterministic perception of life. This reference is an authoritative guide to his life and works. Included are several hundred entries on each of Dreiser's books and short stories, as well as magazine and newspaper pieces he collected during his life.
Pressestimmen"The new Theodore Dreiser Encyclopedia is a handsome piece of work which shows thorough and responsible attention to its subject and careful quality control. Keith Newlin, the coeditor of Dreiser Studies, has assembled a roster of contributors that includes many of the leading Dreiser scholars of this generation....The entries are notably well-written, and Newlin has delimited his topic intelligently, focusing not only on Dreiser's texts, but also on the biographical and contextual matter of Dreiser's richly varied public and personal life....[a] neatly cross-referenced compendium of information about the life and works of one of our most important authors....This volume will serve its readers very well."-American Literary Realism
