Sherwood Anderson’s most enduring work, Winesburg, Ohio, is considered one of earliest works of modernist
literature. The sequence of short stories centers on the life of George Willard
and those who live in the rural, pre-industrial town. “Adventure,” a short
story within the novel, tells the tale of Alice Hindman, a twenty-something
girl, and her continued devotion to her former lover Ned Currie, who left her to
seek his fortune in Chicago. A story of self-discovery and heartache,
“Adventure” is representative of why Winesburg,
Ohio is considered one of the best novels of the twentieth century.
