Product Details


"When he calls himself a ‘poor scribbler’ don’t believe him. He is not a poor scribbler . . . he is a very great writer."–Ernest Hemingway

"Winesburg, Ohio, when it first appeared, kept me up a whole night in a steady crescendo of emotion."–Hart Crane

"As a rule, first books show more bravado than anything else, unless it be tediousness. But there is neither of these qualities in Winesburg, Ohio. . . . These people live and breathe: they are beautiful."–E. M. Forster

"Winesburg, Ohio is an extraordinarily good book. But it is not fiction. It is poetry."–Rebecca West
