“Dreiser Today” (1941)

 

 

David Lord, ‘Dreiser Today’ – Prairie Schooner 1941

 

 

Posted above as a downloadable PDF file is an important article on Dreiser that provides a comprehensive assessment of his critical reception in which his strengths and weaknesses as a writer are assessed from various standpoints and with reference to prominent critics with varying views:

David Lord, “Dreiser Today,” Prairie Schooner 15.4 (winter 1941): 230-239.

It is a well written and thoughtful assessment, in my opinion.
