American Novel

Question 1:Discuss the character of Carrie as one of the finest modern women in American fiction.

Answer: Sister Carrie is a novel by Theodore Dreiser about a lady named Carrie who relocates to a large metropolis. She achieved her American dream upon her arrival. She began as a mistress to guys who perceived themselves to be superior and subsequently became a famous actress. The major idea of this persona was to highlight the American goal of prosperity being misplaced and misdirected. Carrie Pursuing happiness and ascending to celebrity, he discovered that obtaining personal fulfilment is an illusory ideal that is difficult to attain. Money, clothing, and success did not give her with the happiness she anticipated. Carrie, on the other hand, is perplexed as to why this occurs.

Additionally, the novel may have outraged popular taste for any of the following reasons: It was obscene because it showcased ignorant individuals speaking in a slangy and grammatically wrong manner. Dreiser adds insult to injury by sympathising with such terrible individuals. All of the characters were “adrift on a storm sea,” unable to control their own course and reliant on any consolation they encountered.

This contradicted the prevalent moral philosophy of progress and free will, which held that each individual was free to choose between good and evil. Sister Carrie’s pessimism offended the period’s widespread need for sweetness. Why is it that when Carrie enters elite society, she feels empty and lonely? We can deduce the solution at the conclusion of the narrative. “As Chicago dawned, she saw the city providing more beauty than she had ever experienced and instinctively clung to it only on the strength of her feelings.

Man appeared to be contended in good raiment and attractive surroundings, and therefore she approached towards those things. Chicago and New York; Drouet and Hurstwood; the worlds of fashion and theatre—these were merely a few of the occurrences. She desired not them, but what they symbolised. The passage of time established that the depiction was false.” 1988, p.381) (Dreiser, 1988, p.381). Then she discovers that in their world, as in her own, there is no such thing as happiness. The rocking chair rocks back and forth but does not go forward. Life is a series of repetitions and an empty dream devoid of substance or content. They have made no progress.

This is a scathing parody of the American Dream, which is exaggerated at the time by the bourgeoisie. This section is critical. Without it, Sister Carrie’s character will be misinterpreted. However, there is a good aspect to Carrie; although she is just eighteen years old, she is dissatisfied with her little town and is eager to improve her adverse circumstances, and so she travels alone to Chicago for employment. At this point, we can say she is relatively powerful, but she desires the glittering life and is unwilling to obtain it via hard labour. By taking the incorrect step to become the rich men’s mistress, she appears to have lost her positive importance. Carrie is a lovely young lady that Dreiser exploits to convey his own desires for money and romance.

The city’s glitz and excitement have come to symbolise the prospect of realising the American Dream. Dreiser was born into poverty. When he was younger, he worked odd jobs to help support his family. He worked as a newspaper boy, a store assistant, and a lower clerk, among other jobs. As a result, he does not consider her to be sinful. Dreiser emphasises determinism in his novel. Everything is inescapable due to mechanical force.

Carrie ascends from a rural girl to become a successful theatre star and joins the bourgeois upper class; Hurstwood descends to disaster as a manager, becoming a beggar and finally committing suicide. All of this is insufficient to demonstrate an individual’s strength or weakness. On the contrary, mechanical force propels them into that posture. What the author is attempting to convey is that there is no causal link between diligence and success, and that individuals in bourgeois society have no influence over her destiny. We now know that Carrie’s image is extremely complex. As a result, we may conclude that Carrie is a victim of ‘Desire’ and ‘Society. Her deterioration is uncontrollable.
