    1. Sherwood Anderson Horace Gregory

      Sherwood Anderson was an American writer who was mainly known for his short stories, most notably the collection Winesburg, Ohio That work s influence on American fiction was profound, and its literary voice can be heard in Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Thomas Wolfe, John Steinbeck, Erskine Caldwell and others.From PBS Sherwood Anderson, 1876 1941 , was an American short story writer and novelist Although none of his novels was wholly successful, several of his short stories have become classics Anderson was a major influence on the generation of American writers who came after him These writers included Ernest Hemingway, F Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner Anderson thus occupies a place in literary history that cannot be fully explained by the literary quality of his work.Anderson was born on Sept 13, 1876, in Camden, Ohio He never finished high school because he had to work to support his family By 1912, he was the successful manager of a paint factory in Elyria, Ohio, and the father of three children by the first of his four wives In 1912, Anderson deserted his family and job In early 1913, he moved to Chicago, where he devoted time to his imaginative writing He became a heroic model for younger writers because he broke with what they considered to be American materialism and convention to commit himself to art.Anderson s most important book is WINESBURG, OHIO 1919 , a collection of 22 stories The stories explore the lives of inhabitants of Winesburg, a fictional version of Clyde, Ohio, the small farm town where Anderson lived for about 12 years of his early life These tales made a significant break with the traditional American short story Instead of emphasizing plot and action, Anderson used a simple, precise, unsentimental style to reveal the frustration, loneliness, and longing in the lives of his characters These characters are stunted by the narrowness of Midwestern small town life and by their own limitationsad

    3. Sherwood Anderson reminds me a little of Robert Schumann, the German composer Hemingway, Faulkner and many other authors from that era accepted his help, used the influence of his work and used him as a springboard, then turned around after they were successful and dismissed him in one way or another, Schumann, similarly took Johannes Brahms, his junior, under his wing and taught him so much that he also made the latter great While Brahms was grateful and acknowledged Schumann s genius and contr [...]

    4. even though he was somewhat of a homophobe, this stuff is pretty good a lot of people don t realize how much David Foster Wallace s Infinite Jest was affected by Anderson s writing.
