Book: Ellen Glasgow «Barren Ground»

Barren Ground

Дебютировав как представительница южной школы американского романа, Э. Глазгоу впоследствии отказывается от узкорегиональной тематики. Моральной дезинтеграции тех, кто живет чужим трудом, она противопоставляет внутреннюю силу человека работающего. Такова героиня ее романа "Бесплодная земля" Доринда Оукли, которая упорным трудом превращает заброшенную пустошь в цветущее угодье и способна отдать все свое достояние во имя счастья другого человека. "Бесплодная земля" - самое зрелое произведение писательницы, справедливо причисляемой к реалистической школе С. Льюиса и Т. Драйзера. Издание сопровождается предисловием и комментариями к тексту и рассчитано на широкие круги читающих по-английски.

Ellen Glasgow

Ellen Anderson Gholson Glasgow (April 22, 1873-November 21, 1945) was a Pulitzer Prize winning American novelist from Richmond, Virginia.

Life and career

Beginning in 1897, Glasgow wrote twenty novels and many short stories, mainly about life in Virginia. Her own education had been rudimentary, a fact Glasgow compensated for by reading widely. Today, her novels are regarded as more than just depictions of life in the Southern United States.

The 1906 publication of Ellen Glasgow's novel The Wheel of Life drew critical acclaim and comparison with Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth, published by George Platt Brett, Sr. of Macmillan Publishers (United States) in 1905. []

Autobiography

*"The Woman Within" (published posthumously in 1954)
