Anderson, Sherwood


Born Sept. 13, 1876, in Camden, Ohio; died Mar. 8, 1941, in Colón, Panama. American writer.

Anderson was a soldier, factory manager, publisher, and editor. In 1916 he published the novel Windy McPherson’s Son. His collections of stories Winesburg, Ohio (1919, Russian translation 1925), The Triumph of the Egg (1921, Russian translation 1925), and Horses and Men (1923, Russian translation 1926) brought him literary fame. In these collections he realistically depicts spiritually impoverished American backwaters. In his novels Many Marriages (1923), Dark Laughter (1925), and Beyond Desire (1932, Russian translation 1933) he expressed sympathy for the working class.
