SUMMARY Sister Carrie Theodore Dreiser ✓ 1 REVIEW REVIEW í Sister Carrie The novel is followed by A Note on the Text which discusses the relationship between this edition s text and that of the Pennsylvania Edition 1981 and a Textual Appendix which provides a generous sampling of the cuts Dreiser and his friend Arthur Henry made in the typescript version of Sister Carrie Backgrounds and Sources reprints generous excerpts from Dre. Theodore Dreiser s Sister Carrie was the first real book I ve ever read in English I was 11 my mother just bought me a brand spanking new English dictionary and my school librarians finally let me roam the section of the library where normally kids were not allowed to wreck havoc in on their own Awed by the idea of a big book in a language I just started to somewhat understand I reached for it just missing the much age appropriate Treasure Island but then why d you think I d ever want to follow rulesNeedless to say the combination of Dreiser being way over my head my limited English skills and only so much patience an 11 year old would have with a dictionary I soon enough started getting distracted by the afternoon episodes of Duck Tales and therefore my memory of this book has long been just a bit fuzzyAnd so I read it again with a set of grown up eyeballs sans dictionary this time armed with a few gray hairs all twenty of them and a hint of a wrinkle When a girl leaves her home at eighteen she does one of two things Either she falls into saving hands and becomes better or she rapidly assumes the cosmopolitan standard of virtue and becomes worse This book was uite scandalous for its times vulgar immoral risu It was ready to shake up the moral standards of its time with the unacceptable storyline a young poor provincial woman Carrie Meeber comes to Chicago gets disillusioned with honest overworked poverty and before you know it shacks up with first one man then another a married one at that and far from being suitably punished for such an immoral approach to life becomes a successful celebrated actress rolling in riches Sordid indeed It s the American Dream shown in all its dirty unattractiveness nothing covered up by the gilded pretentiousness of class correctness and faux piety with the scathing understanding of the evils of desolate hopeless poverty Dreiser does not hold back casually telling it how it is without any preachiness or sueamishness Sordid indeed She knew that out in Chicago this very day the same factory chamber was full of poor homely clad girls working in long lines at clattering machines that at noon they would eat a miserable lunch in a half hour that Saturday they would gather as they had when she was one of them and accept the small pay for work a hundred times harder than she was now doing Oh it was so easy now The world was so rosy and bright Dreiser does not cut his heroine any slack There are no illusions about the personality of Carrie Meeber She has no redeeming ualities of excessive piety unearthly compassion admirable selflessness exceptional kindness awe inspiring talent She instead is a moderately talented practical and a bit selfish young woman longing for the beauty of life which to her uite circumscribed middle class mind consists of comfortable life in pretty clothes and beautiful apartment surrounded by everything that glitters but is not necessarily gold Dreiser s descriptions of her mind and ambitions are freuently uite scathing Self interest with her was high but not strong It was nevertheless her guiding characteristic And yet she was interested in her charms uick to understand the keener pleasures of life ambitious to gain in material things Her imagination trod a very narrow round always winding up at points which concerned money looks clothes or enjoyment And yet Carrie does not need idealization or overwrought characterization to feel so real and alive through the pages of Dreiser s novel And unlike her almost contemporaries Anna Karenina Edna Pontellier and Emma Bovary Carrie does not pay the price of death for daring to live the life that does not conform to the pre defined ideal instead she thrives even if it in Dreiser s wistful vision does not live up to any high standards Know then that for you is neither surfeit nor content In your rocking chair by your window dreaming shall you long alone In your rocking chair by your window shall you dream such happiness as you may never feel A woman without much agency drifting on the waves of life that happen to take her into the direction of richness and fame This was an accusation flung at Carrie from time to time But consider that Carrie was never expected to have any agency whatsoever instead expected to fulfill her role in society either as a pretty decoration or a choiceless drudge and her refusal to accept these choices to me spells out enough agency to cause many a frown on the critics faces in the early 1900sNot an ideal woman No of course But the rebellious tenacious even if simple personality of Carrie Meeber just highlights the ridiculousness of the ideal itself meek docile forever understanding endlessly supportive uietly content She will paddle out no matter into which depths you throw her to drown regardless of what means she has to use Besides Carrie it s not the pathetic figures of her suitors Drouet and Hurstwood that are at the center of the novel No it s the idea of a big city Chicago and New York in the world just shaking off the confines of small towns in the agricultural society the allure of fast life of industry of loud sounds and bright colors and frenzy of crowds of people all in the several suare miles of the vortex of human life so beckoning and yet so coldly cruel The city has its cunning wiles no less than the infinitely smaller and human tempter There are large forces which allure with all the soulfulness of expression possible in the most cultured human The gleam of a thousand lights is often as effective as the persuasive light in a wooing and fascinating eye Half the undoing of the unsophisticated and natural mind is accomplished by forces wholly superhuman A blare of sound a roar of life a vast array of human hives appeal to the astonished senses in euivocal terms The city beckons and seduces but refuses to nurture those it attracts Carrie is left on her own to fend for herself to make her way in life or rather to drift on the waves of the stubborn stream of life busy paddling along and trying not to drown And so in Dreiser s description you can t help but feel both the alluring call and the warning caution of the fascinating world still so new in those times so fresh so dangerous and so inevitable There was something about this book from over a century ago that continued to speak to me through the years to fascinate me to make me think and feel and experience things it needed me to And I loved it for all of that 4 stars
