When Theodore Dreiser died, scarcely five years age, at the age of seventy-five, he left behind him a long, uneven, and controversial career that included thousands of pages of literary make shift and two or three books which made up for all the rest. In this new study of Dreiser, which was finished by Professor F. O. Matthiessen just before his death last spring and is now published posthumously, the details of Dreiser's life have been subordinated to an analysis of his important work--and the result is a thoroughly satisfying critical essay, though it cannot be called a real biography.

During Dreiser's life America progressed from post-Civil War attitudes of Individualism and stark economic competition to the social consciousness of the New Deal. At his death, he had barley finished a last novel trying to explain the needs of our own time; but his major contribution to American literature consists in his picture of an earlier era.
