Winesburg, Ohio Stories 5-7 by Sherwood Anderson

This week we continue our journey to Winesburg, Ohio with the next 3 stories in the book: “The Philosopher”, “Nobody Knows” and “Godliness, A Tale in Four Parts, Part 1”. It is said “the stories of Winesburg, Ohio can be challenging. They have a rambling, episodic quality. There is less focus on plot and more exploration of human nature and the problems of these characters.” As we get further into the book, we meet more and more of the characters who live in Winesburg. Anderson gives us such a brutal look at life at the end of the 1800s. And yet, it seems things never really change. Do they.
