One thought on “Death in the Woods and Other Stories

  1. Matthew

    I thought I knew Sherwood Anderson, and then I read this story collection These stories were written late in his career They are so direct that I often forgot I was reading a story, and felt like I was listening to a man talk He really captures that.Anderson was a very sensitive man He was touched by all the details in life He is only capturing the music of life He doesn t preach He was the American Chekhov, and maybe the equal of Chekhov Some of these stories cut me deep, but a wonderful feelin [...]

    I think that Sherwood Anderson at his best is an incredible writer Check out Winesburg, Ohio, the title story in this collection, or any of his stories on the topic of women for proof of this, especially There She Is Taking Her Bath But aside from the title story and all of his other stories of womanhood full of that Jazz Age combination of charm, insight, and sexism I found at least half of this collection really tough to get into or care about Stories of so called mountain people, conveyed in [...]

  3. Rowland Pasaribu

    A Death in the Woods, the title story of his 1933 anthology of short fiction, is generally considered Anderson s finest and most characteristic short story In it, an unnamed narrator is haunted by a memory from his childhood In an attempt to understand the enigmatic incident, he returns to the story again and again, seeming to circle closer to the truth with each telling In composing A Death in the Woods, Anderson went through a similar process Although the story was published in 1933, Anderson [...]

    These stories touch some truth I know inside my soul every time I read them in particular In a Strange Town

  6. Molly

    Death in the WoodsI read this story for a project in my AP Literature class, and as a person who doesn t like being told what to read I didn t expect to like this short story as much as I did This story teaches a valuable lesson that sometimes the good natured die at the hands of an endless cycle The good natured being the woman, Mrs Grimes and the endless cycle being the feeding Feeding in a literal sense and a figurative sense She feeds the German farmer and his wife, she feeds her husband and [...]

  7. Russel Henderson

    Not as exceptional as Winesburg, Ohio simply because the stories did not overlap Still, the title story was well drawn and all displayed his characteristic talent for painting portraits of personalities in 10 15 pages The Return was the homecoming story to which every adult who has moved away from a hometown can relate.

  8. Lindsey

    Only read Death in the Woods which is beautifully sad, even though I read this for college I did enjoy this story.

  9. Carl R.

    My last encounter with Sherwood Anderson was with his disappointing Dark Laughter A friend encouraged me not to give up on him, however, and guided me to Death in the Woods and other stories Some people, I guess, can write superb short stories, but can t stretch out to longer works.The Title story here is compelling and grisly, and unmerciful look at rural life in a savage and loveless family Hemingway has nothing on Anderson when it comes to the short sentence, and that suits the stark descript [...]

    There are books I read for enjoyment, others for my writing life This collection from S Anderson magically captures both A story last year I worked on, was modeled after the self title short.Why read Sherwood manages to present casual setting plots, with rich complex characters invested in the psychology of gestures and process of thinking why do people do things, what are they thinking, and also isn t it ODD that things happen this way

  11. Shelly Fromholtz

    A wonderful collection of short stories that explore the nature of relationships, how we communicate with each other, and how we cope and what we tell ourselves to endure Place and setting also play important roles mainly in the Virginia mountains helping to set the tone and mood of each story The images are sure to stay with me Great writing

  12. Eg

    Sherwood Anderson as a writer is a perfect grotesque reflector The story shows the development of an artist The narrator fist struggles to tell the story, but at the end he tells it beautifully The disturbing object like a corpse has been described beautifully which is a part of the author s grotesque style.

  13. Robert Zaslavsky

    These late Sherwood Anderson short stories have a remarkable delicacy of touch in their use of language Each is rather like a fine painting, its narrative visually evocative of a past that never stays past.

  14. Elizabeth Eslami

    How much do I love this book, and the title story in particular I can say it simply, and without hyperbole Death in the Woods is the best story I have ever read, and I would give most anything to have written it.

  15. Renuka

    Short, but creepy and haunting The tragic tale of a woman s harsh, unforgiving life seen through the eye s of a narrator who draws parallels between his own life The death is eerie, mysterious, and unforgettable as the dogs, or wolves really circle around her for one last feeding.

  16. Claudia Putnam

    Three stars overall, five for some stories, less for others, as is usual with story collections.

  17. Yara Abbo

    Read Death in the Woods wow, I m impressed, I didn t think I would like it that much Anderson s really good at reflecting upon the state of America

  18. Rachel

    I actually only read the title story from this collection Interesting story with an investigation into the human condition through storytelling and perspective.
