The Dreiser Edition is a publishing venture which was begun by the University of Pennsylvania Press and the University of Indiana Press to publish scholarly editions of the complete works of Theodore Dreiser, including the novels of Dreiser as well as primary documents such as Dreiser’s autobiographical writings, diaries, travel writing, correspondence, articles, and interviews with Dreiser.

The Dreiser Edition is sponsored by The University of Winchester, The University of Connecticut, and The University of Pennsylvania Library. With the publication of Dreiser’s novel The Titan in 2016, Winchester University Press has become The Dreiser Edition’s publisher.

Dreiser’s Literary Criticism

European Diaries

Dawn (the second volume of Dreiser’s autobiography)

a key source for “Sister Carrie”?

 

 

The following article does not appear in Dreiser bibliographies because it is not about Dreiser:

Henry, Sarah M. “The Strikers and Their Sympathizers: Brooklyn in the Trolley Strike of 1895,” Labor History 32.3 (summer 1991): 329- 53

However, the article would presumably be of interest to Dreiser scholars. It covers the Brooklyn trolley strike of 1895, which Dreiser drew upon for the plot of Sister Carrie.

In chapters XL and XLI of Sister Carrrie, the strike is described in great detail. Hurstwood, who is at first sympathetic to the strikers, becomes a scab out of desperation to find employment. He works as a trolley car motorman for a single day, and is subject to obloquy and physical abuse by strikers and their sympathizers.

The above referenced article is posted on online at

dreiseronline.com — a note on the bibliography

 

The bibliography posts on this site cover works ABOUT Theodore Dreiser from 1990 to 2008.

These bibliographies were compiled mainly while I was serving as bibliographer for the now defunct journal Dreiser Studies.

  • Citations for the years 1990-2004 originally appeared, in somewhat different form, in Dreiser Studies.  See online at

http://www.dreisersociety.org/dreiser-studies.html

I thank the journal for permission to reprint that material. These citations have been expanded by incorporating new entries and by consolidating previously overlooked entries.

In the bibliographies posted here, I have, contrary to usual practice, occasionally included entries that cite reviews of secondary sources — for example, reviews of biographies of Dreiser — where I thought such entries contained pithy content that might be of interest.

An online version of the standard Dreiser bibliography, Theodore Dreiser: A Primary Bibliography and Reference Guide, ed. Donald Pizer, Richard W. Dowell, and Frederic E. Rusch (G. K. Hall, 1991), updated through 2012, is available at the Dreiser Web Source of the University of Pennsylvania Library at

Weaving together readings in literature, psychology, biology, philosophy, education, child-rearing advice, and interior design, he shows how this idea abetted a dramatic rise in attention to environment in many discourses and in many practices affecting the lives of the young between the late nineteenth century and the middle of the twentieth. Through original and detailed analyses of Wilde, Walter Pater, James Joyce, Theodore Dreiser, Rebecca West, and W. H. Auden, Mao shows that English-language writing of this period was informed in crucial but previously unrecognized ways by the possibility that beautiful environments might produce better people. He also reveals how these writers shared concerns about environment, evolution, determinism, freedom, and beauty with scientists and social theorists such as Herbert Spencer, Hermann von Helmholtz, Ivan Petrovich Pavlov, and W. H. R. Rivers.” (book jacket)

Zimmerman, David A. “The Financier and the Ends of Accounting.” Panic!: Markets, Crises, and Crowds in American Fiction Cultural Studies of the United States. Chapel Hill: U of North Carolina P, 2006 191-222 Examines The Financier as a fictional biography of Charles T. Yerkes and also in terms of its structure, posing a question that many readers have asked since the original version of the novel was published: why was the 1911 version of the novel so long, repetitive, and padded with seemingly unnecessary detail? The author concludes that Dreiser was attempting to subvert the prototypical novel of its type (financial biography, or biographical fiction), in which a moral lesson is to be learned from a financier’s rise or fall. Instead, Dreiser uses the financial panic (“an exemplary naturalist drama”) which causes events leading to Cowperwood’s downfall and the story of Cowperwood’s machinations and fortunes to demonstrate natural laws and sociological truths. A revised and expanded version of the author’s “The Financier and the Ends of Accounting” (Dreiser Studies, 2004).

Parry, Sally E. “Brother Theodore: Life as Literature.” American Book Review 26.5 (July/August 2005): 1, 5. Review of The Last Titan: A Life of Theodore Dreiser by Jerome Loving. “Loving’s biography is valuable for those who want to know what real people his characters are based on, and how Dreiser turned his life into literature. Unfortunately, Loving often considers Dreiser and his characters interchangeable, so Dreiser is frequently described as rocking like Carrie or at the end of his emotional or financial hopes like Hurstwood. There is no real literary assessment of Dreiser’s writing outside of plot summaries and the biographical connection.”

O’Brien, Geoffrey. “His Place in the Sun.” Bookforum 10.2 (2003): 36. Discusses Dreiser’s style. “To read Dreiser is to become aware of a flat declamatory tone apparently unconcerned with niceties of style. He has been described as the kind of writer who triumphs over his own deficiencies of style, and as a writer who rummages through his characters’ thoughts with the impatient thoroughness of a child left alone to explore the contents of an attic.”

O’Brien, Geoffrey. “Letter.” Washington Post 30 March 2003. Section: Book World: T10 Letter to editor from Editor-in-Chief, The Library of America. “If all the world saw eye to eye on the merits of literary works, the task of selecting titles for the Library of America would be both easier and duller. Knowing as I do the wide-ranging, informed and passionate discussions that take place before any title enters the series, I am baffled by Jonathan Yardley’s imputation of editorial dereliction (Book World, March 9). That Theodore Dreiser’s An American Tragedy is visionary, penetrating and enduringly influential is not an esoteric opinion, whether or not Yardley happens to share it. The point of the Library of America is not to ratify the opinions of any particular person or group but to publish work that has had a continuing vital significance for the culture. Dreiser’s major novels certainly qualify.” See Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World, March 9, 2003.
