Sister Carrie

Theodore Dreiser

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time

American writing, before and after Dreisers time, differed almost as much as biology before and after Darwin, said H. L. Mencken. Sister Carrie, Dreisers great first novel, transformed the conventional fallen woman story into a bold and truly innovative piece of fiction when it appeared in 1900. Naïve young Caroline Meeber, a small-town girl seduced by the lure of the modern city, becomes the mistress of a traveling salesman and then of a saloon manager, who elopes with her to New York. Both its subject matter and Dreisers unsparing, nonjudgmental approach made Sister Carrie a controversial book in its time, and the work retains the power to shock readers today.

Sister Carrie came to housebound and airless America like a great free Western wind, and to our stuffy domesticity gave us the first fresh air since Mark Twain and Whitman, noted Sinclair Lewis. Dreiser enlarged, willy-nilly, by a kind of historical accident if you will, the range of American literature, observed Robert Penn Warren. [Sister Carrie] is a vivid and absorbing work of art.

Sister Carrie: Theodore Dreiser: Bücher Sister Carrie, published in 1900, was Dreiser’s first novel, and what a deep novel it is. It follows a clear narrative journey, has completely believable characters, the central ones of whom are particularly complex, nuanced and perfectly credible as recognisable individuals – but we also absolutely see the history and culture of time and

Antagonist in Sister Carrie - Shmoop Despite Hurstwood's many transgressions, he's not your typical bad guy. In fact, he ends up a pretty sympathetic (or at least pitiable) character by the end. However, he's also the character in most direct conflict with Carrie (our protagonist), the guy who gets in her way the most, which makes him prime antagonist material. Yes, things start
