viii, 371 pp. With a new introduction by the author. Poor White is an American novel by Sherwood Anderson, published in 1920. An episode in the novel inspired Bertold Brecht's poem "Kohlen für Mike" ("Coal for Mike"), published in his 1939 collected Svendborger Gedichte. It is the story of an inventor, Hugh McVey, who rises from poverty on the banks of the Mississippi River. The novel shows the influence of industrialism on the rural heartland of America.--Wikipedia
