  • This carefully crafted ebook: "Poor White (Unabridged)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
    Sherwood Anderson's Poor White captures the spirit of small-town America during the Machine Age. A lonely and passionate inventor of farm machinery, Hugh McVey, who rises from poverty on the bank of the Mississippi River, struggles to gain love and intimacy in a community where "life had surrendered to the machine." Through his story Anderson aims his criticism at the rise of technology and industry at the turn of the century. Simultaneously, he renders a tale of eloquent naturalism and disturbing beauty. Poor White was praised by such writers as H. L. Mencken and Hart Crane when it was first published in 1920. It remains a curiously contemporary novel, and a marvelous testament to Sherwood Anderson's "sombre metaphysical preoccupation and his smouldering sensuousness".

  • F. Scott Fitzgerald definió Muchos matrimonios una de las mejores novelas de Sherwood Anderson
    El libro abraza la tesis del fracaso de la institución del matrimonio, es decir de la monogamia. Por esta razón fue vetado en muchas librerías de Estados Unidos y de Inglaterra y creó no pocos problemas a su editor. A pesar de ello Fitzgerald afirmó que no se trataba de un libro inmoral sino de un libro ferozmente antisocial. El mismo Anderson adelantó que al libro se le acusaría de inmoralidad, pero solo porque investigaba en la dirección de una liberación física y mental del ser humano.
    La novela puede parecer como la simple historia de un adulterio hasta puede parecer de lo más obvio: el jefe con su secretaria, pero la reflexión de Anderson despojada de inhibición, es mucho más profunda y mística, quiere ahondar en la esencia del hombre para entender cuáles fuerzas interiores, a veces inevitables, lo mueven a través de las convenciones sociales.
    Una reflexión interesante sobre las relaciones sentimentales y resueltamente moderna para la época en la que fue publicada

    EXTRACTO
    Un hombre llamado Webster vivía en una ciudad de veinticinco mil habitantes en el estado de Wisconsin. Tenía una esposa llamada Mary y una hija llamada Jane, y él mismo era un próspero fabricante de lavadoras. Cuando el asunto sobre el que voy a escribir ocurrió, él rondaba los treinta y siete o los treinta y ocho, y su única hija tenía diecisiete. No será necesario hablar de los detalles de su vida previos al punto en el que una cierta revolución se desató en su interior. No obstante, era un hombre más bien tranquilo, inclinado a tener ensoñaciones que intentaba ahuyentar de su interior con objeto de funcionar como fabricante de lavadoras; y, sin duda, en momentos inesperados, cuando estaba en el tren, con destino a algún lugar, o quizás los domingos por la tarde, en verano, cuando iba solo a la oficina desierta de la fábrica y permanecía sentado varias horas mirando por la ventana a lo largo de los raíles del tren, daba rienda suelta a sus sueños.

    Lì, Bruce è finalmente pronto a ritrovare la pace e la serenità tanto desiderate, ma l'incontro con una donna lo costringerà a mettere tutto in discussione ancora una volta.
