Sherwood Anderson

Sherwood Anderson, with little formal education, began writing in 1910 at the age of 34. His early struggles to support his family provided invaluable insight into the American experience. After a nervous breakdown in 1912, he began to focus on his writing career. He is most praised for his short stories which led the American short story beyond it's well worn formulas, focusing more on portraying life realistically.
