Dreiser, Theodore Herman Albert
Dreiser, Theodore Herman Albert (1871–1945) US writer. His first novel, Sister Carrie (1900), was considered immoral by its publisher and Dreiser distributed it himself. Jennie Gerhardt (1911) was also attacked for its uncompromising naturalism. The Cowperwood trilogy includes The Financier (1912), The Titan (1914), and The Stoic (1947). Dresier's greatest work, An American Tragedy (1925), is based on the Chester Gillette-Grace Brown murder case of 1906.
