This book tells the growth of the protagonist George Webber: came to the metropolis New York from a small town in the southern United States but the novel written with all his energies was left out by the publishers; fell in love with the married man Esther but was incompatible with the upper class; came to Europe but the fascist came to power. After a series of struggle and confusion, the author had the impulse of returning to the hometown but he deeply understood that he could no longer find the spiritual home. In this work, the author gradually changes the focus from people's inner world to the outside world and begins to focus on depicting the whole American society, but it is still filled with sadness and confusion.
Comments to eBook The Web and the Rock (Modern Classics)
Lesesshe
This book is "the rest of the story." The popular Harper Perennial paperback entitled "The Web and The Root" is in fact just the first 16 chapters of "The Web and the Rock," and does not really lead the reader to the beginning of "You Can't Go Home Again." Reading all 50 chapters of this book takes the reader much further into the tumultuous relationship between Monk and Esther, as Wolfe intended. Thomas Wolfe is unapologetically verbose, which I find to be a treat. He dwells on Monk's conflicting emotions, providing a series of brilliant passages as both Monk and Esther struggle to manage their affair. Not a quick read, but necessary for anyone who wants to fully appreciate "You Can't Go Home Again."

Thomas Wolfe is my favorite author of ALL time. The Web and The Rock is an autobiographical novel based on his love affair with his publisher. Although Wolfe writes paragraph long sentences, the feeling is so profound, I read them over and over again. This book is a work of art. Take the time, plow through his prose, and read it. You will be changed after you do.

A classic by a North Carolina author of whom we are most proud.

great condition and as exactly as described!

Wolfe tells his coming of age story with extensive, descriptive passages that sometimes get in the way of the plot and the reader's ability to actually develop an attraction to the characters themselves. With Wolfe, it seems to be more about the thrill of putting words together than actually telling a story.
If you have enjoyed any of his other books, this one will not disappoint; same beautifully fictionalized memoir, same lyrical touch.
