Sister Carrie (1900) is a novel by Theodore Dreiser about a young country girl who moves to the big city where she starts realizing her own American Dream by first becoming a mistress to powerful men and later as a famous actress.— Excerpted from Sister Carrie on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

西奥多·赫曼·阿尔伯特·德莱赛(Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser,1871年6月27日-1945年12月28日),是一位以探索充满磨难的现实生活著称的美国自然主义作家。他走遍了芝加哥、匹兹堡、纽约等大城市,广泛深入地观察了解社会,为日后的文学创作积累了丰富的素材。


Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser is an American author of the naturalist school, known for dealing with the gritty reality of life.

When Caroline Meeber boarded the afternoon train for Chicago, her total outfit consisted of a small trunk, a cheap imitation alligator-skin satchel, a small lunch in a paper box, and a yellow leather snap purse, containing her ticket, a scrap of paper with her sister's address in Van Buren Street, and four dollar in money. It was in August, 1889. She was eighteen years of age, bright, timid, and full of the illusions of ignorance and youth. Whatever touch of regret at parting characterized her given up. A gush of tears at her mother's farewell kiss, mill where her father worked by the day, a pathetic sigh as the familiar green environs of the village passed in review and the threads which bound her so lightly to girlhood and home were irretrievably broken.
