"The Game as it is Played": Essays on Theodore Dreiser

Donald Pizer

Peter Lang


224 pages



Modern American literature: New Approaches; v.66


This comprises the best of Donald Pizer's essays on Theodore Dreiser. Pizer, one of Dreiser's principal critics over the past forty years, is especially concerned with establishing the distinctive nature and quality of Dreiser's naturalism in many of these essays. From one of Dreiser's earliest short stories to his acknowledged masterpiece, Sister Carrie, Pizer (English emeritus, Tulane U.) supplies his best essays on Dreiser's career, use of the genre of realism, and works in general in sixteen chapters which also serve as standalone essays.
