The Memoirs of an American Citizen

ByRobert Herrick

Robert Welch Herrick (1868-1938) was a novelist who was part of a new generation of American realists. His novels deal with the turbulence of industrialized society and the turmoil it can create in sensitive, isolated people. He was also briefly acting – Governor of the United States Virgin Islands in 1935. From1905 to 1923, he was a professor of literature at the University of Chicago, during which time he wrote thirteen novels. Among those considered to be his finest was Web of Life (1900). His art was free of dogmaticisms and achieves its power from a melancholic fatalism.
