Annotations for Sister Carrie


Dover Pubns
A teenage girl without money or connections leaves her small town in search of a better life in Dreiser's revolutionary first novel. The chronicle of Carrie Meeber's rise from obscurity to fame ? and the effects of her progress on the men who use her and are used in turn ? aroused much controversy upon its debut in 1900.

The first masterpiece of the American naturalistic movement, Sister Carrie made its controversial debut in 1900. Condemned for its alleged immorality, the novel traces the fortunes of a small-town girl's rise from obscurity to fame.
