Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson - Despite the fact that there are people who simply do not want to communicate with others, there are those who do not think or know that there are institutions that they can reach out to for help.

Neurosis is the term for the distress of the mind causing a person to behave socially different from others; it is also seen as abnormal nature....   [tags: Anderson Winesburg Ohio] 1628 words

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. In fact, to view the novel in larger units, the final chapter is conspicuously named "Departure," and for any reader who bothers to take in the table of contents page before starting the book it is fairly easy to deduce how Winesburg, Ohio will end before it even begins. 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]

Winesburg, Ohio: The Struggles of a Small Town - Winesburg Ohio is a moving, intriguing book of short stories about the lives of people in a small town in Ohio.  Although each story seems to have  a different theme and meaning, with the only connection being time, place and George Williard, all the stories seem to  come together to a common, general  theme as well.

The characters in the book do not fully realize that they are searching for truth, but they do feel a vague, "indescribable thing" that pushes and prods their minds to actualize a higher plane of thought.
