作家薛伍德.安德生 (Sherwood Anderson) 于1876913日出生

在两次世界大战之间,薛伍德.安德生对于美国文坛有相当大的影响。他擅长把每天谈话中的真实话语用文字表达出来,并且用全新的格式与风格撰写文章,打破了过去常规、守旧的形式。他对于美国新一代的作家也有很深远的影响,其中最有名的就是恩斯特.海名威 (Ernst Heimingway) 以及威廉.福克纳 (William Faulkner) 。许多老牌的作家常常会施压年轻作家,要求他们应该要写自己最擅长的东西。但是当安德生于1924年在纽奥良遇到福克纳时,他鼓励福克纳撰写有关密西西比家乡的故事。安德生的作品中,以1919年集结短篇小说出版的俄亥俄州的威尼斯堡 (Winesburg, Ohio) 被普遍认为是最好的作品。你可以试着写一篇关于自己家乡的故事,也许你会对内容感到很惊讶喔!

Sherwood Anderson had an important influence upon American writing between World War I and World War II. He is credited with capturing the real sound of everyday speech in his writing and experimenting with new forms and styles, breaking down tired, old formulas. He influenced a whole generation of writers, most notably Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner. Many experienced writers have stressed that a young writer should write about what he or she knows best. While in New Orleans in 1924, Anderson encouraged Faulkner to write about his home county in Mississippi. Anderson's 1919 collection of short stories, Winesburg, Ohio, is widely considered his best work. Try writing a story about your hometown; you may be surprised.
