It was a miserable place in which to be born. With the exception of a narrow strip of black mud along the river, the land for ten miles back from the town - called in derision by river men "Mudcat Landing" - was almost entirely worthless and unproductive. The soil, yellow, shallow and stony, was tilled, in Hugh's time, by a race of long gaunt men who seemed as exhausted and no-account as the land on which they lived. They were chronically dis-couraged, and the merchants and artisans of the town were in the same state. The merchants, who ran their stores - poor tumble-down ramshackle affairs - on the credit system, could not get pay for the goods they handed out over their counters and the artisans, the shoemakers, carpenters and harnessmakers, could not get pay for the work they did. Only the town's two saloons prospered. The saloon keepers sold their wares for cash and, as the men of the town and the farmers who drove into town felt that without drink life was unbearable, cash always could be found for the purpose of getting drunk.

Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio is a seminal work of art that has had a broad reach in American literature, influencing such famous writers as Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, John Steinbeck, and J. D. Salinger. Sherwood Anderson had the courage to break from tradition and tell his stories in a unique, courageous voice, touching on taboo subjects and exploring psychological themes rarely, if ever, broached in the literature of his day. Any serious study of modern American literature is incomplete without examining the contribution this great writer made to our literary tradition. This particular edition contains over 20 pages of notes and exercises that treat the major themes in Winesburg, Ohio. It also offers over twenty creative writing exercises based on an examination of Sherwood Anderson's particular style. Michael Segedy, a novelist and former teacher, has published numerous articles about writing and literature. In 1986, he won The Virginia Bulletin's writing award for the best articles published over a two year period. Gwendolyn Brooks, poet laureate of Illinois, presented him with the writing award.
