In the early stages of the novel he introduces a bewildering number of characters, some of whom will emerge as primary actors and some of whom will never reappear. In the text, the New York theatrical world images the city’s unique fascination. But a pervasive corruption underlies this surface excitement, a corruption that infects the novel’s female protagonist, Ellen Thatcher, and from which her male counterpart, Jimmy Herf, ultimately flees. Dos Passos incorporates the metaphor of fire to symbolize a distinctly urban corruption that destroys, but does not purify or redeem.
While Anderson was himself indebted to Stein, Winesburg, Ohio directly influenced other important modernist works such as Ernest Hemingway’s In Our Time (1925) and Jean Toomer’s Cane (1923). These works are also loosely assembled collections of fragments. Though a number of the stories in In Our Time also seem to suggest the development of a unifying protagonist, Nick Adams, it also contains stories that seem wholly unrelated to Nick or his experiences. Moreover, the stories are separated by inter-chapters, sketches of only a few paragraphs in length.
