    One thought on “Winesburg, Ohio”

    1. zut, alors! i don't even know where to begin. i had such a complicated reaction to this book. am i the only person who didn't find this depressing?? this book is life - it is tender and gentle and melancholy and real. not everything works out according to plan here, but what ever does? that's not necessarily depressing, it's just a reality that can either be moped over and dwelled upon, or accepted and moved on from. this is the emotional truth of life - we don't understand our urges, we make ba [...]

    2. ‘Only the few know the sweetness of the twisted apples.’When you stop and listen, life is a brilliant cacophony of love and pain, where we are all struggling to shed the shackles of loneliness and stand full and actualized in a society that never bothers to truly look into our hearts. Sherwood Anderson’s gorgeous Winesburg, Ohio, which beautifully blurs the line between a collection of short stories and a novel, is a testament to the loneliness in our hearts, and delivers a pessimistic, ye [...]

    3. A beautiful, melancholy song to small-town loneliness and despair--to the fragile bonds that tie neighbors together and the vivid lives and heartfelt personal dramas that pulse beneath the surface of ordinary affairs. This was once a book I carried with me everywhere, a book I tried (and failed) to emulate in my own writing, and a book whose sentences I'd whisper to myself to catch something of their hypnotic cadences. It's easy to see how influential this book was on so much American literature [...]

    4. Winesburg, Ohio: A Group of Tales of Ohio Small-Town Life, Sherwood Anderson تاریخ نخستین خوانش: دوازدهم نوامبر سال 2006 میلادیعنوان: کتاب عجایب: واینزبرگ اوهایو؛ نویسنده: شروود آندرسن؛ مترجم: روحی افسر؛ ویراستار: شهرام شیدایی؛ تهران، نیلوفر، 1383؛ در 247 ص؛ چاپ دوم 1384؛ موضوع: داستانهای کوتاه از نویسندگان امریکایی [...]

    5. «El amor es como un viento que agita la hierba debajo de los árboles en una noche oscura—le había dicho—. No debe usted tratar de convertirlo en algo definido. Es un accidente divino que ocurre a veces en la vida. Si trata usted de definirlo y tenerlo por seguro y de vivir bajo los árboles, donde sopla la suave brisa nocturna, llegará enseguida el largo día del desengaño y la seca polvareda que levantan los carros cubrirá los labios inflamados por los besos».Lo que volvía grotesca [...]

    6. Holy Moley! Virginia Woolf finds the very caverns leading to hell. Anderson makes miscellaneous dips in the very depths of actual fire the residents of Winesburg all live there. They are the ghosts of the living. Anecdotes in Winesburg (devoid of time or protagonist) are juicy with implication and horrific details. They are grave, all of them portends of certain annihilation and the never-ending stasis of existence. What you will see in this unforgettable experiment and ONE OF THE BEST NOVELS ou [...]

    7. AKA: Goddamn you, George WillardMy apologies to you, bandwagonyou're going to have to make room for one more. This book is bittersweet like therapy, like sweating out a lifetime's worth of drugs and drink in a mentholly sauna-room, like looking through a photo album from a decade or so ago when you thought you knew who you were but you had no idead still probably don't. Well, neither do the folks in Winesburg, Ohio. I loved, sympathized with and related to each individual, even down to that per [...]

    8. Fuck, I loved this bookI loved its drab mood, and existential feel.I loved the descriptive writing, and the small town, midwest setting, with the seasons and people changing, but life in general, staying the same.I loved the wild brilliance to the endings.More than anything, and what made this novel truly special to me, was its insight into the raw emotions and psychological underpinnings of people's inner worlds. Reading this felt like peering into human nature.I loved the depth of characters; [...]

    9. Winesburg, Ohio, is certainly the geographical ancestor of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, Washington, and Lumberton, North Carolina (Blue Velvet) -- not so much for its omens of severed ears and one-armed men, but for its wealth of turbulent emotion (e.g rage, despair, lust, contempt all the good ones, really) concealed behind a picturesque scrim of small town American life. Yeah, the shopworn theme of middle class American repression has been done to death -- Sam Mendes’s American Beauty may hav [...]

    10. July 2010Hey, Winesburg, Ohio. You got a minute? There’s something I want to talk to you about.Look, we’ve been reading each other for a few weeks now, and I think we’ve both had a good time. I’m glad we decided to move slowly. You’re a collection of short stories and, however linked those stories were, I wanted to take the time to appreciate each one. It seemed like the right thing to do. And it was. You're an amazing book, full of passion and life, an old-fashioned kind of gal. Reall [...]

    11. "I wanted to run away from everything but I wanted to run towards something too. Don't you see, dear, how it was?"-- Sherwood Anderson, Winesburg, OhioThis is one of those important novels I would have probably passed over or missed if Sherwood Anderson wasn't mentioned in so many lists--and if so many authors I admire (Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, O'Connor, McCarthy) didn't mention (or perhaps not mention, but just shadow) him as an influence or inspiration. There is something beautiful abou [...]

    12. Okay, fine, I didn't like it. I believe I had a crisis of faith whilst reading Winesburg, Ohio. One of the bestest reasons for GR is that I've been exposed to writers that I'd never heard of and to reviews that made me sit up and say 'To the library, NOW' and I really wanted to believe that I'd benefit from reading this. I really did. So, uh what went wrong? Where is this crisis of faith? Okay, maybe not faith---maybe foundation is a better word. See, I always sort of thought of myself as an equ [...]

    13. 4.5I apologise for my lack of originality, but I need to steal karen's perfect summarisation of this book: "this book is life - it is tender and gentle and melancholy and real. not everything works out according to plan here, but what ever does?"There is no better way to put it than that. Winesburg, Ohio is a collection of short stories about the inhabitants of the small town of Winesburg, it is a very real story about the lives of "normal" people. Those people who work hard every day of their l [...]

    14. THE BEST LAID PLANSA man and woman meet at a bar. They begin to talk and learn that each has trouble staying in long-term relationships because their sexual tastes are considered deviant. Excited, they decide to return to the woman’s apartment. After a bit of heavy petting, the woman excuses herself to her bedroom, promising to return wearing something more appropriate. Minutes pass and the woman emerges from her room in dominatrix attire to find the man nude, spent and smoking a cigarette. In [...]

    15. I've just started this but I have in mind the American radio show This American Life and the snarly description they quoted from a (I've never watched it but I gather it was sort of trashy) tv show, "Is that that [radio:] show by those hipster know-it-alls who talk about how fascinating ordinary people are?"Anyone can read this book and call it beautiful, moving, insightful, etc. But someone who reads this and then continues to snub the "common" man for no reason other than boredom, a perceived [...]

    16. If you ever want to engage in a fun experiment I suggest you do the following, which I've arranged in a convenient, step-by-step format.A) Fall in love with a girlB) This might be hard to arrange by yourself, but the girl has to move away from you- but not because you split or anythingC) Stay away from her for a whileD) Save up your money devotedly (i.e. stop smoking for a week) so you can afford to go visit her.E) Take a 7 hour bus ride to where she resides, which may or not be a hippy/freak/ar [...]

    17. If not for I might never have read this extraordinary book, despite its acknowledged status as a classic. But only a fool would ignore the recommendations of readers as smart as Montambeau, Jason Pettus, and my good friendBen Harrison, and I'm not a complete idiot. So this past weekend I finally sat down to read Winesburg, Ohio, curious to see if it could possibly meet expectations.God, I loved this book! In the two dozen or so linked vignettes that make up his account of the small town of Wine [...]

    18. When European artists want to place their symbolical tale in a setting that’s nowhere and everywhere they often settle for Central-Eastern Europe. There are so many countries there, the borders keep changing all the time, no one can keep up, so the artists can let their imagination run wild. They can even invent a whole new country and stick it somewhere between Hungary and Czech Republic. Poland is also a good place. A classic Spanish baroque play – Life is a Dream by Calderón de la Barca [...]

    19. Winesburg? More like Whines-burgI know this book of linked short stories about the lonely inhabitants of a small American town in the first decades of the 20th century has been influential, and is considered a classic, but I found it a drag: opaque, vague, obvious, tiresome.Yeah yeah, I get it: small town = claustrophobic, gossipy, repressive, hypocritical, lonely. Honestly? I’d suggest flipping through a book of Edward Hopper painting reproductions (see below), since he deals with some simila [...]

    20. First read, 2-stars:The Goodread Illuminati have really suffered Stockholm Syndrome with this one. Winesburg, Ohio. Somebody throws out a 5-star rating, quickly followed by a 4-star, two more 5-stars…another 4-star. The book propagates like herpes simplex II. Are my Goodread friends preening each other? Are they making the naked circle march of a rugby club initiation, where the closer you follow a naked friend ahead, the less people see your own frontal nudity? The book within a week is plott [...]

    22. Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Oh." is one of the most criminally undervalued books in the whole damned canon. Mention it to most people and of the few who have heard of it precious few of those have actually read it. I am in no way shape or form trying to sound highfaluting. I bought this book a full year before I actually sat down to read it and that was only 4 months ago. I was finally swayed to do so because a good buddy of mine and I were itching to read some books together and we both hap [...]

    23. A couple weeks ago, since my daughter had decided on a birthday party at Build-a-Bear Workshop, we had to take a trip to the dreaded mall. I don't like the mall. There's always parents screaming at their kids, it smells wierd, there's now monitors throughout, advertising and blaring even more shit that you just have to buy. Groups of girls hanging out, but not even talking to eachother since they're all too busy texting and walking at the same time. (How do they do this?) I even spotted an angry [...]

    24. Pretend that you are a beleaguered IT guy. OK, maybe you aren't as beleaguered as those in Third World countries who have no choice but to work in the Truck Nutz factory for sixteen hours a day while dying a slow death caused by meager wages, inhuman tedium, and constant exposure to airbourne faux testicular carcinogens, but you like to think that you understand their pain. Existential career crises are the new black for Americans living in the 21st Century. It is Friday afternoon and you storm [...]

    25. Esta es la historia de un observador, George Willard, y de sus crónicas sobre algunas de las situaciones que acontecen o acontecieron a su alrededor. Sherwood Anderson era un mago. No hay otra explicación. Es capaz de conmovernos con cualquier mísera historia, apenas importante a simple vista, pero contada con tal apasionamiento que logra hacer grande lo insignificante. Anderson es capaz de ver lo extraordinario en lo cotidiano, de hablarnos de sus semejantes con una precisión y una poesía [...]

    26. Unbearably slow stories that filled me with a dull sort of dread. (2007) A couple of years later (2012. Okay, a few years later.), after a re-read:"Many people must live and die alone, even in Winesburg." There is no way to make my original one star reaction after the first reading of this book meet up with my present feelings about it. Is it because I was in a different place in my life a few years ago? Is it because I'm impatient with books that sometimes have a slow wind-up? Is it because, we [...]

    27. The embarkation point for the tales is ‘the book of the grotesque’: a not too subtle harbinger of the twist and turmoil a la minute to follow. Anderson puts us on guard with this opening: bucolic to turn bellicose and bilious, incoming. Winesburg is the ubiquitious Smallville, USA: a pastoral pastiche cauterized with the influx of urban myth. In a way ever since township sprung up and forged a lifeline to village, this tension between bucolic innocence and urban cynical know-how has been fer [...]

    28. “Se devi fare lo scrittore devi smetterla di giocare con le parole; sarebbe meglio mettere da parte ogni idea di scrivere, finché non sei preparato. Adesso devi vivere. Non voglio farti paura, voglio farti capire l'importanza di quello che tu puoi tentare. Non devi diventare un venditore ambulante di parole. Devi imparare quello che la gente pensa, non quel che la gente dice”.Osservare un campo di grano come se fosse il mare; fare in segreto quello che fanno i giovani sotto gli alberi; scop [...]

    29. Winesburg, Ohio (1919) puede interpretarse de dos maneras: como una novela o como una serie de relatos concatenados. Yo me quedo con la segunda, con un matiz: los relatos se leen como biografías de personajes ficticios (basados en paisanos del pueblo natal deSherwood Anderson). Si Salinger tenía fijación por los pies, Anderson la tiene por los hombros; así, cada vez que un personaje está a punto de desnudar su alma ante un amigo, apoya las manos en los hombros de su interlocutor, como si es [...]

    30. I read this book because goodreaders told me that Steinbeck was influenced by Anderson; that Cannery Row was influenced by Winesburg, Ohio; that this book was a favorite for Wolfe, for Faulkner, for Hemingway, for Henry Miller, for David Kowalski, for brian gottlieb, for Ben, for Chris, for Philip Roth, for J for Angie, for Moira, for Yvette, for Ray Bradbury, for H.P. Lovecraft. For John Steinbeck. How could I possibly resist it, then? How can you, now?It's a novel and/or a series of short stor [...]
