Garland, Hannibal Hamlin


Born Sept. 14, 1860, in West Salem, Wisconsin; died Mar. 4, 1940, in Los Angeles. American writer. Son of a poor farmer.

Garland’s first and best collection of short stories, Main-Travelled Roads (1891), realistically portrayed the difficult life of the farmers. The theme of the novel A Spoil of Office (1892) was political corruption in the USA; the novel A Member of the Third House (1892) depicted the pressure of the first monopolies on the farmers. Garland set forth a Utopian plan for a return to the patriarchal structure in the novel Jason Edwards (1892). He continued the theme of farmers in the novels A Son of the Middle Border (1917) and A Daughter of the Middle Border (1921).
