Sister Carrie

Theodore Dreiser

3rdPublisher: W. W. Norton & CompanyFormat: Paperback

The novel is followed by “A Note on the Text,” which discusses the relationship between this edition s text and that of the Pennsylvania Edition (1981), and a “Textual Appendix,” which provides a generous sampling of the cuts Dreiser and his friend Arthur Henry made in the typescript version of Sister Carrie. “Backgrounds and Sources” reprints generous excerpts from Dreiser s autobiographies and other writings that help establish his personal connection to the novel. Coverage of the supposed “suppression” of Sister Carrie by its first publisher is drawn from Dreiser s correspondence with Frank Norris, Arthur Henry, Walter H. Page, and F. N. Doubleday. “Criticism” collects thirteen essays, six of them new to the Third Edition, that discuss Dreiser s distinctive literary naturalism and narrative technique, the novel s relationship to American culture, and issues of gender and class in the novel, among other topics. Contributors include Ellen Moers, Robert Penn Warren, Amy Kaplan, Alan Trachtenberg, and Donald Pizer, among others. A Chronology of Sister Carrie and a Selected Bibliography are also included.
