In this handsome edition of his short stories, the Library of America raises Sherwood Anderson into the pantheon of American literature. Anderson's in danger of being one of those writers that everyone says is important but nobody really reads. I had read "Winesburg, Ohio" which was as excellent as I remember but I was surprised by the quality of some of the other stories in this work. These realistic stories focused on the start of the twentieth century are still moving and there are some small masterpieces. While "Winesburg, Ohio" is justly celebrated, Anderson showed great maturity as a writer in the books that followed. I especially enjoyed "Death in the Woods" which was the last book of stories published in Anderson's lifetime. In the stories included there, Anderson shows himself to be a master of narration and readers will have fun, especially with the unreliable narrator in the title story. I found "Horses and Men" to be the weakest book collected here (it's clear that parts of it were meant for a novel and Anderson was much better writing short stories) and the unpublished stories attached to the book did little for me.

I was expecting the LOA edition to be "Winesburg, Ohio" and a collection of later books showing Anderson never showed the same level of talent again. Instead, I found Anderson to be a master craftsman of the short story who was excellent in capturing plot, characters and showcasing subdued emotions--especially in "Unlighted Lamps" which was one of the more haunting stories I have read in some time. While he's not as popular as many of his contemporaries, Anderson is a major American writer. Once again American literature and readers are in the debt of the LOA for showcasing an often neglected writer. Recommended highly.

It's amazing to re-read Sherwood Anderson's gems of stories and be surprised once again and on a different level by how insightful, deep, yet accessible are his characters and themes. The subtle simplicity of his writing is quite deceptive, for like a soft breeze that turns to sudden wind it catches you off-guard and almost knocks you over. Anderson is the quintessential American voice of the Mid-west of the 1920s common man caught in a confusing world of change he cannot understand. Anderson didn't have the self-promoting instinct of Hemingway, or the glamorous life-style of Fitzgerald, but as this collection of stories clearly show, he had the deep psychological understanding of the men and women who appeared in his fiction, rendered in the melancholic tone that only he could create.
As many critics have rightly claimed, "Winesburg, Ohio" is a creative force on which many contemporary authors of Anderson's time built their reputation while emulating its style, language, and themes. There are of course in this Collected Stories many other selected short stories that would have been sufficient to make Anderson an authoritative voice in American literature. I am
pleased to have access to all these selections in one volume. And indeed any reader of fine fiction of any culture could do no better than to take up this admirable collection to discover or re-discover a great American writer, one who has long been neglected and who needs to be given his rightful place in our literary world.
