The Dreiser Edition





The Dreiser Edition

General Editor: Jude Davies

Textual and Managing Editor: Thomas P. Riggio



Professor Jude Davies of The University of Winchester assumed the role of General Editor of The Dreiser Edition commencing with the publication of Dreiser’s The Titan: The Critical Edition in 2016. Prior to that, the General Editor was Thomas P. Riggio, now Textual and Managing Editor.









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

Une tragedie americaine - cover
 — 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

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).
