Theodore Dreiser

American novelist and journalist Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser (1871–1945) is now regarded as one of the great American novels, but it wasn’t until the publication of An American Tragedy that Dreiser enjoyed commercial success. A writer of the naturalist school, Dreiser’s work concerns itself with exploring the tensions of a rapidly changing society, as urban centres expand and social norms relax.
