Examines modern American narrative in relation to the historical development of middle classness in the U.S.A. Asserts that in Sister Carrie Dreiser creates an “urban pastoral” as a realm of middle-class fantasy, a realm which draws on older ideological images of aestheticized labor but significantly updates them.

Smooth prose composition eluded him forever. His style was raw, his sentences often bewildering, and he organized poorly. Dreiser’s major novels are structurally chaotic, causing one to wonder if he outlined his material before commencing a project. To summarize his plots is to enumerate banalities. …”
