Analysis of Anderson's Trailblazing - After reading Trailblazing by Eric Anderson I was blown away by the story told in the book. It is a story of self-realization, persecution, and perseverance. At first it was hard to believe that this was the same person I see in lecture twice a week.

Fading Away in Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio -       The final sentence of Winesburg, Ohio imprints the image of the town fading away as George Willard departs for the city.

The notion of escape from the town of Winesburg is common throughout the book, and the intended destination for escape is usually some undefined "city." As a recurring element, however, it fits into a broader theme of the novel, that of a need for change in general....   [tags: Anderson Winesburg Ohio Essays]
