About This Item
An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser fictionalizes a famous murder that happened in the 1906 murder of Grace Brown by Chester Gillette. His version tells the story of Clyde Griffiths, a confused and irresponsible young man. Clyde uses his position as supervisor to take advantage of a young woman, Roberta, who has fallen in love with him. Clyde falls in love with another woman, Sondra, who could provide him an entrance to society. Robert becomes pregnant, and after failing to get her an abortion, Clyde schemes to murder her when she insists on marrying him. Clyde is arrested, tried, and ultimately executed. Time magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005 list, and it is considered a classic of American crime fiction.
