    One thought on “Collected Stories”

    1. So glad I spent this much time with these stories, if you ever need ideas for how to start a story Anderson sure know how to kick it off.

    2. (Reading still in progress, on and off.) It may take more than one reading to be caught by the strength of Anderson's writing. Very impressive in my eyes are:- the storytelling, made of simple, sometimes seemingly simplistic and almost-redundant touches, and yet dealing with the deepest stuff of life (and death).- the half-redundancies, which both (a) give a conversational tone and, more essentially, (b) give multiple and renewed takes on the characters and their actions, creating a vision of li [...]

    3. This book is a collection of Anderson's many stories. I read Winesburg, Ohio, a collection of twenty-four stories, considered to be his best collection of short stories, and a good portion of The Triumph of the Egg; I didn't finish the rest. I liked Anderson's writing style and his ability portray small-town America of the early twentieth century. Most of the stories in Winesburg had a thread of gloom running through them, just enough to keep me from really wanting to immerse myself in the life [...]

    4. I really only read Winesburg, Ohio; I'll get to the rest of the stories later, and gradually. Bits of it haven't aged so well, but Anderson was wonderfully empathetic and compassionate and such a careful observer of people, and that all shines through. I love his stories as much now as I did 20 years ago.
