The Triumph of the Egg: A Book of Impressions from American Life in Tales and Poems

The Triumph of the Egg is a fictional panorama of a great region of our country, unfolded by a writer who-to quote the New York Times-"depicts life in the Midwest as Dostoevsky pictured the many colored life of Russia, with almost as wonderful a touch of genius, with a more concentrated and daring skill." This coveted 1921 collection is an example of what a book of stories can be when a writer of vision deals with the materials of American life.

Muchos matrimonios Audiobook

Muchos matrimonios

Author: Sherwood Anderson Narrator: Gustavo Ausín Release Date: April 2018

F. Scott Fitzgerald definió Muchos matrimonios una de las mejores novelas de Sherwood Anderson. El libro abraza la tesis del fracaso de la monogamia, es decir de la institución del matrimonio. 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 porque investigaba en la dirección de una liberación física y mental, en un intento de revelarse a sí mismo cual era la justa vía para el ser humano. La novela puede parecer una simple historia de 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. Grabado en español ibérico (España).

Winesburg, Ohio

Author: Sherwood Anderson Narrator: Terry Bregy Release Date: May 2012

Winesburg, Ohio, a collection of stories set in a fictitious town in the 1890s, has long been considered Sherwood Anderson's masterpiece. This groundbreaking work set the stage for a new era in writing, greatly influencing Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, and John Steinbeck, among many others. Anderson wrote simply, brilliantly crafting a work that dared to examine the darker impulses of human nature. Considered by many at the time of publication in 1919 to be a scandalous work, Winesburg, Ohio has nonetheless survived through the decades as one of the forerunners of modern fiction. Haunting and powerful, it draws listeners into the streets and houses of Winesburg-and into the darkly complex lives of each of Anderson's unforgettable "grotesques."

COMMENTARY Reviews for Alcazar AudioWorks' production of Winesburg, Ohio The classic fiction of Sherwood Anderson is brought to life by Alcazar AudioWorks as talented voice actors tell the stories of Winesburg Ohio. In the early 1900s, a young reporter sets out to record the stories of the lives within Winesburg Ohio. Quite unusual and candid, the stories told by some of the older people date back all the way to the Civil War. Town gossip, suspicion, and intrigue are the lifeblood of Winesburg Ohio; it flows from the townsfolk to the reporter to the listener's ear. To the outside, it seems a simple town, but listeners will be surprised and maybe even shocked by what really happens here. Each story is about something gone terribly wrong, something that author Sherwood Anderson called, ""The Grotesques."" Each is quite unique and the contents won't be revealed by the titles: Tales and the Persons, Hands, Paper Pills, Mother, Dr. Parcival, Nobody Knows, Godliness, A Man of Ideas, Adventure, Respectability, The Thinker, Tandy, The Strength of God, The Teacher, Loneliness, An Awakening, Queer, The Untold Lie, Drink, Death, Sophistication, and Departure. All of the short stories in the town collection are contained on a seven-CD set. Sherwood Anderson grew up in a small town in Ohio and graduated MFA from Ohio State University. His most popular book is celebrated each year at the Sherwood Anderson Festival. Reviewed By: Kate O'Mara - EHO Eclectic Homeschool Online Quotes about Winesburg, Ohio Library Journal praised this edition of Sherwood Anderson's famed short stories as ""the finest edition of this seminal work available."" Reconstructed to be as close to the original text as possible, Winesburg, Ohio depicts the strange, secret lives of the inhabitants of a small town. In ""Hands,"" Wing Biddlebaum tries to hide the tale of his banishment from a Pennsylvania town, a tale represented by his hands. In ""Adventure,"" lonely Alice Hindman impulsively walks naked into the night rain. Threaded through the stories is the viewpoint of George Willard, the young newspaper reporter who, like his creator, stands witness to the dark and despairing dealings of a community of isolated people. -Amazon.com Review ""When he calls himself a 'poor scribbler' don't believe him. He is not a poor scribbler . . . he is a very great writer.""-Ernest Hemingway ""Winesburg, Ohio is an extraordinarily good book. But it is not fiction. It is poetry."" -Rebecca West "Considered to be one of the forerunners of modern fiction...[A] ground-breaking masterpiece."-Midwest Book Review "Nothing quite like it has ever been done in America. It is so vivid, so full of insight, so shiningly lifelike and glowing, that the book is lifted into a category all its own."-H. L. Mencken "As a rule, first books show more bravado than anything else, unless it be tediousness. But there is neither of these qualities in Winesburg, Ohio...These people live and breathe: they are beautiful."-E. M. Forster "Winesburg, Ohio, when it first appeared, kept me up a whole night in a steady crescendo of emotion."-Hart Crane "[A] timeless book of connected short stories about the brave, cowardly, and altogether realistic inhabitants of an imaginary American town."-AudioFile "
