Summary
First published in 1900, "Sister Carrie" is Theodore Dreiser's classic tale of Caroline "Sister Carrie" Meeber, a young woman living in rural Wisconsin who yearns for a more urban life. She takes the train to Chicago where she is taken in by her older sister Minnie and her husband. Caroline attempts to make her way in Chicago first by obtaining a job in a factory but is quickly confronted with the coarse reality of a working class life. When she becomes ill, and loses her factory job as a consequence, she must find another way to advance her station in life. An opportunity presents itself in the form of Charles H. Drouet, a buoyant traveling salesman whom Caroline first met on the train to Chicago and reencounters after losing her job in the factory. After dining with Drouet, who desires her affection, she is persuaded to move in with him. Caroline discovers that through her beauty she can achieve the material reward that she desires, first through a series of love affairs, and then ultimately by pursuing a career as an actress. Due to its unconventional morality and unromantic depiction of modern life "Sister Carrie" received a mixed response when first published, but since that time has come to be regarded as an American Classic. This edition includes a biographical afterword
