Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio
With Variant Readings and Annotations
By Sherwood Anderson
· Edited by Ray Lewis White
In 1919 a middle-aged Chicago ad man facing professional and personal crises published a modest book of stories intended to “reform” American literature. Against all expectations, it achieved what its author, Sherwood Anderson, intended: after Winesburg, Ohio, American literature would be written and read freshly and differently.
