Sister Carrie, Theodore Dreiser's sociological tragedy by David E. E Sloane( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodore Dreiser's Sister Carrie (1900) broke new literary ground in a number of ways. Its graphic documentary style, urban setting, and concern with economic and sociological issues set it apart from popular fiction of the period. In his characteristically detailed and awkwardly methodical style, Dreiser crafted characters and situations that dramatize the forces of economic necessity, social censure, and urban anonymity. Set in turn-of-the-century Chicago and New York, the novel explores the life of Carrie Meeber, a poor rural woman whose naivete and poverty make her an ideal target for the dangers of urban life. Dreiser depicts the dilemma created by Carrie's desire to succeed and find security in a morally and financially compromised society that lures her with its glitter. David E.E. Sloane's study proposes that Dreiser's sociological tragedy uses the details of the cityscape and the lives of its urban characters to build a drama in which none of the characters are able to achieve real happiness. Sloane demonstrates how Dreiser used themes already of concern to his readers but managed them in ways that challenged the moral and sexual assumptions of the day. Sloane's thesis is that the novel addresses economic inequality by showing that even in the poor and inarticulate like Carrie Meeber there are physical and spiritual drives that need expression but that are repressed by social mores. The study offers a detailed examination of how Dreiser's stylistic and structural choices are perfectly suited to his material, and shows how the novel forged the way for other socially conscious works in the twentieth-century

ROUTLEDGE REVIVALS : the literary humour of the urban northeast 1830-1890 (1983) by David E. E Sloane( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Literary Humour of the Urban Northeast brings together works by such writers as Mark Twain, P.T. Barnum, Marietta Holley, and the literary comedians Artemus Ward and Josh Billings. The northern writers chronicled a fast-moving world, dominated by government and business. In this anthology, David Sloane recovers satiric writings of the north-eastern humourists of the nineteenth century, a literary school that was formed in the crucible of the daily newspaper. Written to appeal to a newly urbanized audience experiencing the impact of the Industrial Revolution, these humorous articles, sketches and ballads responded to a rapidly changing nation still clinging to rural preconceptions but at the same time beginning to know a sharper more precarious kind of existence.

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I have dound out, Mark Twain once wrote, "that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them."

Linguistically-Based Language Systems for the Inner City Student by David E. E Sloane( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The traditional method of teaching writing to students in universities by correcting their errors supposes a generally well-developed sense of written language structure and formal English language discourse. The new population seeking higher education does not always possess such a background. An alternative instructional method is to use the systems of language structure to offer positive models. Sector analysis is one such scientific study of language that can be used to fuse the remedial needs of the inner-city student with college-level language awareness. Sector analysis, or X-Word Grammar, is a linguistic system developed by Robert L. Allen. Its particular strength is that it is a system for examining written English in relation to obligations or expectations that must be fulfilled in conventional English. In X-Word Grammar, the sentence is defined as a series of slots or positions. The basic positions of subject, used in reference, and predicate, used in predication, are defined in terms of an X-Word that moves to the front of a yes/no question. A knowledge of positions and constructions combined with reader anticipation establishes a groundwork for critical and logical development of thinking. (Mkm)
