Author(s): Theodore Dreiser

Recommmended: High School; Challenging

The novel that shocked a nation! Considered lurid and scandalous at the turn of the century, Sister Carrie has long been recognized as an American classic. With a reporter's keen eye for detail, Theodore Dreiser portrays turn-of-the-century Chicago and New York with such precision that the factories of Chicago, the degradation of the New York slums, and the glitz of Broadway spring to life. These cities are the backdrop for the story of a young woman's corruption, an older man's crime, and the successes and failures that city life breeds. This complete study edition of Theodore Dreiser's classic Naturalist novel Sister Carrie includes information about the United States at the turn of the century, questions, writing ideas, and projects—everything you need to explore the big city, where vice and virtue, self-interest and love, and greed and generosity war in the hearts of men and women.
Author Bio
