Notes:
Repr. with a new note on the text by James L.W. West III.
The story of a country girl's rise to riches as the mistress of a wealthy man. Published in 1900, its subject matter and Dreiser's non-moralistic approach made it highly controversial and hence, heavilly edited. In this restored version, the revolutionary nature of the novel is evident. A landmark in American literature, presented in its complete and unexpurgated version. Dreiser's unsparing story of a country girl's rise to riches as the mistress of a wealthy man marked the beginning of the naturalist movement in America. Both its subject matter and Dreiser's objective, nonmoralizing approach made it highly controversial, and only a heavily edited version could be published in 1900. In this restored version, the truly revolutionary nature of Sister Carrie is made fully evident.
