George Fountain III Literature 105 Professor Voris September 7, 2010 Winesburg, Ohio Response Paper In the episodic novel, Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson, the perspective shifts between several characters within multiple chapters. This feature represents the many stories being told with different thoughts and images, and provides realism. Providing realism to the reader allows the reader to be the judge of the events and how the situations characterize them as unique people. In the chapter “Paper Pills,” Anderson does not establish a speaker. Rather he uses a mysterious narrator to illustrate stories. For example, Anderson presents Doctor Reefy as lonely. According to the text, “Winesburg had forgotten the old man” (pg. 20). The people of Winesburg seemed to overlook the doctor’s contributions. They might have ignored the true depth of the doctor’s soul, “but in Doctor Reefy there were the seeds of something very fine” (pg. 20). Since everyone was detached from the feelings and thoughts of the doctor, the doctor kept to himself.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
